Whatever you sow you shall reap

December 6, 2013

I have been a personal friend of the Ken Dunning family for more than 25 years. If ever a family personifies the Christian walk, it is the Dunnings.

Pastor Dale Dunning was called by God many years ago to feed the hungry. Pastor took her old beat up car and a hot plate and started her Jusst Sooup Ministry. Over the years, she has started over 15 kitchens that serve soup to the community.

Ken's and Dale's faithfulness was blessed by God over two years ago when Schell Brothers and Extreme Makeover built the beautiful complex on Rte. 9.

Sadly, a few “neighbors” were able to prevent the kitchen from opening. I hope they are never out of work, hungry or even homeless, but if they are, I know a wonderful woman who will feed them.

Pastor Dale decided she would open the complex at her ranch as a church. Many of the precious people we see at the Rehoboth soup kitchen are unchurched.

I know of churches that have opened in stores, basements and homes. They had no problem with parking, seating or anything else – they just put up a sign and open.

It is now going on three years; the scrutiny this family has gone through is ridiculous. Work starts, work stops. Promises made, promises broken. One roadblock after the other. My opinion only -could it possibly be because she is a black woman. I pray that is not true!

Is there anyone in Sussex County that has political clout and a Christian heart that will step up and expedite this process? If so, please let the church open so Pastor Dale can continue the work the Lord has called her to do.

To the “neighbors” - remember ”whatever you sow, you will reap.” I didn't say it, God did.
