Fruit Ministry

Eleven years ago, we had a growing group of neighborhood children who we had learned to know. When the Kids Club outgrew our apartment and moved to the Life Center, we asked ourselves “How can we continue to have contact with them at our house throughout the week?”  In answer to this question, we started giving away a serving of fruit to them after school. Part of Rosanna’s routine since then has been making sure that we have fruit, and that it is washed and ready to serve. Our interaction from the patio includes children, teens and adults, and has been an excellent point of contact throughout the years. As we hand out fruit, we have many opportunities to chat with, care about, share with and laugh with our neighbors. Rosanna’s name to many in this community is simply “The Fruit Lady!”
