WAP 5802On Saturday, October 20, a group of enthusiastic Metro members headed to Franklin Square in Washington, DC to feed the homeless.  Jenny Laquinte wrote a great blog about it that we encourage you to read because it fills in the details about the photos that you see here.  This pictures in this photo blog are courtesy Wood Angle Photography.

Everyone started lining up very orderly, without having to be given directions

This sister had her own praise party going on - she even selected the song she wanted sung!

While they waited for the food to arrive (why did the food leave Metro last???), Minister of Music Theo Milford did what he's called to do - lead out in praise and worship!

(BTW, we have a funny story about those water bottles you see above - they all have ROOTED tags, as that series was just around the corner, and as is our custom, they include the church's website.  Comedian Levar Jones went around clowning on Melissa Andrews, wanting to know how the homeless were going to get online to check out the website)

Finally - the food and supplies start to show up!

 Everybody who showed up had to work - even Pastor Johns!  Ron Andrews seems contemplative as he carries his box

There's Levar Jones - stepping smartly!

Our Metro young men were out in full force (from left:  Theo Milford, Levar Jones, Earl Monkou, Clent Smith)

Though you can't see her face, we assure you that this lady in brown is Tammy Francois - the other main organizer (and cook) of this event

One of the best moments of the day - the volunteers and our guests united in prayer

The food is almost ready.  The folks waiting to be fed can't wait!

Many of our guests expressed delight when they realized they were getting a hot meal (Jenny and Tammy were insistent about this, and made Melissa back down from her suggeted sandwiches and chips meal)

So not only did Tammy and Jenny cook for the homeless, they also cooked for the volunteers!  These ladies are something else!!!  Here we are feeding them from the back of the Francois' truck - so it didn't look like we were eating the food we brought for the homeless
