Finished meal for today’s community outreach: Savory Salisbury Steak and gravy, with sautéed onions and mushrooms, topped with provolone and parmesan; buttermilk biscuits, buttery mashed potatoes, seasoned green beans with potatoes.
It was a labor of love started last night with 12 pounds of ground beef, seasoned and made into patties, then refrigerated until 7am this morning, when we finished preparing the main dish, including fresh onions and assorted mushrooms to make a hearty and flavorful gravy.
We also added couple dozen homemade biscuits, made fresh this morning. The green beans and mashed potatoes were also a huge success, but I forgot to take photos before we started.
We took a few moments to say grace, and fed over 20 guests today (a few folks were still trickling in as we were leaving), but there was plenty to go around. Hard to believe that 2 and 2 Possibles, Inc., is over five years going strong in this ministry, and we are ever-grateful to continue this journey that we pray will continue to be pleasing to God. Spreading love in Louisville and beyond. 🥰
Our Louisville Chapter of 2 & 2 is starting 2023 by continuing to serve our monthly lunch meal to guests at Re:Center Ministries, but also starting to spend some time on the ground, in coordination and cooperation with other outreach groups (I hope that I will get better at remembering everyone’s names soon!), including The Forgotten Louisville, Jacob’s Ladder, and a long-serving outreach organization, Hip Hop Cares. 2 & 2’s first outreach participation pf 2023 included volunteering with these wonderful people who started at 5pm, and they were still making stops around the city well after 9pm. Thanks to these God-sent volunteers, we were blessed to make multiple stops, sharing hot soup, hot cocoa, sack lunches, hot coffee, with cream and sugar, snack bags, hygiene kits, and various sustenance items, including batteries, blankets, clothing and more.
My hope is that 2 & 2 will be able to continue to participate regularly, at least twice a month with the street outreach teams, and to post a list of requested items, for any who may want to bless us with a donation to continue this most important work. Here are some items that were requested during last night’s outreach, if you are inclined to donate.
Batteries (AA and AAA)
Underwear (various sizes)
Hoodies (various sizes)
For items that cannot be mailed, I will be glad to meet any local (Louisville/Fort Knox area) donors in person, or you can donate funds directly to any of the following:
2and2-dot-org or to Venmo @JacobsLadderOutreach.
Please also let us know if you are interested in volunteer opportunities. We will be happy to have you join us. Thank you! ❤️.

Servant leaders, serving joyously!
