“In 2011, we provided 78,300 meals. At the end of October this year, we provided 78,600 meals, and we’re on pace to provide over 92,000 meals this year. There are more families that we are helping on a more regular basis,” Kean told The Advance.

Maybe there are other ways of feeding the poor. Have you checked out Price-Pro in Surrey,BC? It is an interesting concept in donating.

Earlier today I had to do a bit of shopping at my local Metro. Inside was the Salvation Army rep with the red kettle. All I had in change was .55 cents but put it in anyway.

Suddenly, for no apparent reason, it started to tip over. The Salvationist caught it in time before it feel on top of my feet. Both of us were surprised at the unexpected incident.

I sensed something immediately and realized that it, the kettle, falling over is a prophetic sign for the Salvation Army.

“God is going to fill your Christmas kettles so much that you will have a far GREATER abundance then you can ever imagine.”
