One of the things that allows Hosanna to help as many people as it does is our ability to stretch the dollar. Through the giving of time, talent, and treasure by generous people such as yourself, Hosanna is able to take $1 of donated monies and provide approximately $4 worth of service to our clients. We would like to thank the many volunteers and businesses who not only donate their time to come out and help on site, but also provide us with donated or discounted materials. We could not do it without you!
“Jesus called his disciples to him and said, “I have compassion for these people; they have already been with me three days and have nothing to eat. I do not want to send them away hungry, or they may collapse on the way.”
His disciples answered, “Where could we get enough bread in this remote place to feed such a crowd?”
“How many loaves do you have?” Jesus asked.
“Seven,” they replied, “and a few small fish.”
He told the crowd to sit down on the ground. Then he took the seven loaves and the fish, and when he had given thanks, he broke them and gave them to the disciples, and they in turn to the people. They all ate and were satisfied. Afterward the disciples picked up seven basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. The number of those who ate was four thousand, besides women and children.
