14 When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them and healed their sick. 15 As evening approached, the disciples came to him and said, “This is a remote place, and it’s already getting late. Send the crowds away, so they can go to the villages and buy themselves some food.” 16 Jesus replied, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.” 17 “We have here only five loaves of bread and two fish,” they answered. 18 “Bring them here to me,” he said. 19 And he directed the people to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people. 20 They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. 21 The number of those who ate was about five thousand men, besides women and children.

Caring For The Multitudes
"Harvest House has always been here for us. Food and clothing for school has been such a blessing. The clothing is very nice. I am a single mom with 3 boys. They go through a lot of clothing and grow quickly. The clothing store has really helped."
"I am raising 4 of my grand-kids alone. Times are very hard. My husband had brain surgery and was out of work. Harvest House helped pay our electric bill when it would have been disconnected. We were filled with panic and so overwhelmed. The prayer we received from our adviser, made it all melt away. The help with food and clothing has also blessed our family so much. Harvest House has always been here for us. They seem way busier now, but still care and take time with us."
"I don't have money for the extra costs of groceries and clothing. Harvest House has really helped with these extra expenses and to get us back on our feet"
