If this actually happened, you would think it’d get more headlines than just this one in Charisma, a Christian magazine. As it stands, I can’t find any other information about it.
They had only prepared food for 70 people. But once the service in the prison in Pochutla had started, more and more men joined in…
As soon as the service finished, it was time to pass out the food. “We prayed for God to multiply the food,” says Tami. “By the end of the service there were 200 men attending.” Their prayer was answered. “I could hardly believe it, but it happened. As we were handing the food out to the inmates, it didn’t run out. We even had enough plates and spoons for 200 men!”
A few possibilities:
1) They gave out smaller portions when they saw more people in line, thus having enough food for everyone.
2) They had more plates and spoons than they had thought they had.
3) They made more food. And bought more supplies.
Why are none of these things even considered in the article? No one bothered to check those possibilities out?
Oh. Right. Christian news service…
Why bother with all the facts when the story sounds so much better without them?
