So...whew! What an exciting 4 days that was! We had a total of 5 people who ate a meal with us, and we met several new people! We had meetings with people who are plugged into this community of eating disorders here in Greenville, such as therapists and dietitians. Overall, we were very encouraged.
Next week we already have some people lined up for meals and we are grateful for this. The Lord is bringing people in and the community is growing quickly.
If there is anything we learned last week, it is this...This is a need here in Greenville, SC and in other cities as well. Meal support, learning how to cook a meal, and eating with people is going to be very helpful for even people who have had eating disorders in the past and are just looking for a place to land when they have no one else to eat with.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask....I will do my best to answer. My head and heart are very full and it is just about near impossible to blog about all of it and every single detail, but I wanted to let you all know that it was definitely a very profitable week!
