Invite Some Friends, Make Some Food!

We all need food to survive. We eat to help us grow, to stay healthy and, most importantly, to stay alive.

But we need more than just physical food; we need spiritual food too! In Matthew 4:4, Jesus said: “... People do not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God” (NLT).

Scripture is our spiritual food. But around 170 million people around the world are waiting to get even their first word of the Bible in their language. That’s a lot of people who need to have the Bible — God’s spiritual food — in a way that makes sense to them.

Take some time as a family (and perhaps even invite a few people over) and make one, two or more of the recipes included in this activity and learn about the physical foods of different people from around the world. (You can find these and other recipes in the cookbook “Cooking with Kate & Mack.”)

As you make this food, read about the country it’s from and the people who eat it, and pray that they’ll learn about God’s amazing love for them in a language and form they can clearly understand.
