Real Bread Outreach Update – Our Trip to Tanzania

Thank you to everyone for the support and prayers for our trip. It was successful!We were able to purchase all the equipment needed to outfit the new bakery at the Potter’s Center in Visaga, Tanzania. This discipleship center functions to equip new believers with the truth of God’s word as well as vocational life skills. The new bakery will not only be used to prepare nutritious food and bread for those in the discipleship school, it will also be a part of the vocational training. We found locally grown wheat and rice, which we used to make some traditional African ...

Recalling the Miracles of 2019 and Looking Ahead with 2020 Vision

This is long, because there is so much to share! I hope you will read until the end, for the best is yet to come. As 2019 draws to a close, I am reminded of all the blessings brought forth throughout this past year. Though 2018 ended in sorrow for me personally, with the sudden and unexpected death of my dad, 2019 began with joy and confirmation of the direction of Real Bread Outreach. And as I reflect back over the year, I stand in awe of all that God has done.  When God first called us to go to Haiti, the vision of a bakery was expressed. The goal to ...

Spread the Bread – Haiti Update

With sincere intentions I thought that I would be diligent to regularly update our website. But here I am three years later finally adding a post. But as you will read from the update below, we have been very busy. It has been 3 years now since God called us to Haiti. In March of 2016 we made our first trip. Though it seems like such a short time ago, in some ways it is hard to remember a time when a love for the people of Haiti was not a part of my life. The call to “cast our bread on many waters” has truly been a light unto our feet. Several weeks ago, I ...

Ezekiel Bread Recipe

This is a very sweet, moist, cake-like bread. For a more traditional bread texture, I have used flour made from this combination of grains and beans in the Basic Bread Recipe from the The Beckers Recipe Collection Cookbook, replacing the 4 ½ cups of flour called for with about 5 ½ cups of flour from the Ezekiel mixture of grains in this recipe. You may also add fruits and nuts or use the flour made from this mixture in other favorite recipes. This healthy combination of grains and beans is worth experimenting with. Combining grains and beans makes a complete protein.

“Spreading the Bread” to Haiti: How it Began

On January 7, 2016, my Bible reading for the day included a verse from Ecclesiastes. Ecclesiastes 11:1 says “Cast your bread on the surface of many waters, (be diligently active, make thoughtful decisions) for you will be richly rewarded.” I noted the verse in my prayer journal and asked the Lord to show me what “waters”?

Ministry Opportunity for Real Bread Outreach

In 2007, God put it on my heart to start a ministry to supply healthy, real food to families who truly could not afford to meet this need for themselves. Over the years, we have had sufficient support for the opportunities that arose. However, on Thursday, June 6, God brought a need to our awareness. An article in a local newspaper (that I seldom ever read) caught my eye. A local ministry in Cherokee County, GA was conducting a summer lunch program for kids that would otherwise go hungry.
