Lending hands to people homeless, hungry, hurting

Lending hands to people homeless, hungry, hurting

NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – On the corner of Highway 161 and Fairfax sits a small church, and tucked just behind that small church is a small food pantry. The place may be small, but the volunteers there have big hearts – and ambitions.

I stopped by Full Gospel Temple to chat with Pastor Ken Mullen and other volunteers about “In Your Hands Ministry,” a program devoted to providing food for the poor and homeless. For eight years, they have devoted themselves to helping people they say are “homeless, hungry and hurting,” going so far as to bus in the homeless from downtown Little Rock for a hot meal and a prayer service.

Every Tuesday, the crew gives away food to needy families behind the church. They also take prayer requests and often have devotion on the spot for those who request it.

Max's Take: Ark. National Guard Soldiers back on home turf

Max's Take: Ark. National Guard Soldiers back on home turf

These are some of the best stories to cover as a reporter, soldiers coming home after deployments overseas. Today I went to Central Flying Service in Little Rock where about 60 Arkansas National Guard members came home after serving on a mission in Kosovo. Before they arrived, families filled the lobby area, many armed with Welcome Home signs and T-shirts. And when they arrived, cheers exploded and it was fun to see loved ones standing on tip toes and peering around searching for their soldier coming home.

One soldier from North Little Rock came home just in time for his wedding in two weeks. Captain Patrick Hawkins says his future bride planned everything while he was overseas. She said she gave him options to think about while in Kosovo but jokingly said they were all hers. His fiancee said what she missed most was having a "piece of her famliy" missing for the past year.

I also had a chance to speak with the Pearce family from Bee Branch.

The Hero on Horseback...Let Lauren Ride

The Hero on Horseback...Let Lauren Ride

A Hero on Horseback trotted through Central Arkansas this weekend.

I caught up with him in Malvern on a rainy Saturday and you can see his heartwarming story here.

But I couldn't let the opportunity pass me by--I asked if I could ride. Sophie didn't care too much that I was in the saddle...made me think about when a kid doesn't mind the babysitter because it's not his/her parent.

And yes, if you listen closely you can hear me flirt with Cowboy Chris.

Happy Trails!
