Hungry Heroes has been able to serve over 600 heroes throughout York County and surrounding areas since it was founded in April 2018, according to its website.
Recently, Amanda came across a woman who was going through the worst phase of her life. Amanda comforted the woman and shared a video on her Facebook after meeting the woman. She said in the video:
“Hey everyone, as you can tell I’m at work. I just had to pull over and share something real quick.”
“As I’m delivering, I pull up to this house, the lady walks out because she’s checking her mailbox for her newspaper. And I have two boxes for her, so we start walking up the driveway together, and she asks me if I had happy holidays, and I was telling her how busy it was.”
“I told her I had a really great Christmas and New Years, and I asked her the same, I was like ‘how was your holidays?’ And with tears in her eyes, she said it wasn’t good. She said, ‘He’s sick. My husband’s sick. He has cancer.’”
“I continue to small talk and try to change the subject because that’s awkward, and I deliver her package. She said ‘what’s your name?’ I said ‘Amanda,’ and she told me her name. I drove off. My heart’s pounding. I do probably 20 more stops, and I have to go back.”
“I stopped what I was doing. I went back to that neighborhood, and rang her doorbell, and asked her — she came down the stairs, she had tears in her eyes when she saw it was me, she smiled, and I said ‘Ma’am can I pray with you?’ And she just broke down. She came out on the front porch and squeezed me so tight.”
“The point of this is, is a lot of people want the Lord to use them, and for me — as an example, I pray every day for the Lord to use me, but when He’s trying to use you or when you feel that call, and that tug on your heartstrings, do you move your feet? Do you move?”
“When you feel those tugs on your heartstrings, and you feel like you need to do this, stop and do it.”
“If you’re praying for the Lord to help and to use you in people’s situations when He is giving you a chance, do it. . . Be sure you know what you’re praying for when you’re praying.”
