(This is the official fundraising campaign for HMM's Christmas Meals ministry; Laura is the HMM Director of Communication)

For most Americans, the holidays center on food. "When is the next meal?" What all are we eating?"

For many of our Dominican and Haitian neighbors, however, the question about food and meals is likely "IF?"

HMM needs YOUR help with the Christmas Meals program. Last year,over 5,000 people were fed - and we hope to provide a warm,filling meal with a message of HOPE to even more of our Dominican and Haitian neighbors this year!

Steve Wren, an HMM volunteer from Jackson, Miss., had the opportunity to serve meals in Santa Elena and the Cassandra communities (around the HMM compound in the DR) in 2012. A member of Highland Colony Baptist Church (Jackson, Miss.), Wren has traveled with HMM many times and helped serve meals through other ministries, but last year's Christmas Meals program was special for him.

"No matter how many times you've fed someone who is truly hungry, you never really accept the notion that you've done all you can do for that person. It's literally the most joyous thing to share some food and a lot of love with somebody, who for the life of them, doesn't really know YET why we're there," says Wren.

"Now take that feeling and mix it with the one that sets in after you've left them....the one that wonders where will they be getting their next food from and you can never erase either feeling. It's why we go back."
