Room for One More…

Friends asked us to go with them to Liberty, KY…

“What is at Liberty, KY”, I asked…

There is a restaurant called “Bread of Life”… with great home cooking… fresh vegetables… homemade breads and desserts…

A religious group called the Mennonites own and run it…

It was established along with a school, prison ministry, housing for special needs children and adults… over the last 30 years…

by Jerry and Sandy Tucker…

“It was a spiritual journey of shepherding more than 150 abused and handicapped children from around the world”…

quoting from a book I am now reading about this journey…

The book is called “Faith, Hope and Room for One More”…

We arrived in about two hours after leaving home…

The restaurant is spotless, cheerful with colorful quilts adorning the walls…

and very crowded with people who come every day to eat… or visiting like us…

“Janice and David”… our friends…

 

Lots of room… Immediate dining room plus an extra-large room for overflow…

The waitresses and helpers are extremely nice…

wanting your visit to be enjoyable…

The food was excellent!…

Fried chicken, meat loaf, smoked pork chops… all kinds of veggies… potatoes fixed in many ways… fresh rolls that are as big as saucers that melt in your mouth…

with honey or cinnamon butter!…

Deep Dark Chocolate Cake and Peach Cobbler… Ice Cream/Cookies for dessert…

Wonderful loaded Salad Bar with fresh fruits/vegetables…

 

We left full… visiting the Gift Shop on the way out where homemade breads, jams, etc. … could be bought besides craft items…

This is where I bought the book!…

I talked to two gentleman at the restaurant who told me they were preachers and had performed a funeral service for one of the children…

who had recently passed and had stayed at the Galilean Home…

I just so happened to read about her on the internet when I was checking out the site for information as to what we would be seeing…

her name was Shilene… COUn8uAWgAAtp26

It was a very good learning experience…

A dedicated group who is totally funded by donations, volunteers… growing part of their food on the 20 acre farm…

No government money is used!…

Established in 1984… and is still taking children when ever needed…

Sandy Tucker has since passed away in 2007… but, their daughters help their father carry on their mission…

As they say…

“There is always room for one more!”…

We left and rode around to some quilt shops, fruits markets OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA and visited the Trading Post run by the Mennonite Ministries …

similar to a thrift store… with nothing costing over $3.00… and enjoyed the beautiful day…

Ice Cream was out at McDonalds… so Frapes and Smoothies sufficed as we headed home…

A lovely day with two exceptional people…

and memories that are still twirling in my mind…

  1. Reminds me of a place Al and I ate at regularly in Florida when we lived there. Is Liberty closer to me or farther away? I noticed you said 2 hours, so wondering south or north or what from you

  2. Sounds like an exceptional day out in an exceptional place. Very glad you had a good day out. Thank you so much for your card which arrived a day or two ago, so kind of you. All the best to you and Bobby. Lovely photo of you both, by the way. :)
