"Returning the Favor" is an outreach ministry envisioned through the concept of feeding the hungry during the Christmas holiday. This vision began in the hearts of Evangelist Anthony Noe and his wife, Joyce and their precious sons, Hunter & Joshua. The Noe's, put their hands to the plow, and didn’t look back. This ministry was birthed through much prayer, with the primary focus of giving back to those in need. During a tough economic time, as jobs are diminishing throughout Harlan County, it is the hope of RtF to reach out to the people of our county. In doing so, the objective would be to give a ray of hope back into a hurting environment. As this ministry has started to flourish over the last couple of years through the tremendous support of local businesses, churches, and individuals, it is an honor to announce that this will be an annual event. Not only is RtF able to feed families physically, but also spiritually. The food boxes will be purchased with the donations given. On a specified date each year, Returning the Favor will turn over the boxes to the churches that contribute. These churches will have full control over which families or homes receive a box. The reason behind this decision is, local churches know best in their community who is in need.
Above anything else, Returning the Favor wants to see salvation take place. When our church families enter into a home just days before Christmas this allows not only the chance to touch a family with a dinner, but also offers the opportunity to plant a seed for the Kingdom. The efforts of RtF are to see individuals and families come to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior! Returning the Favor wants to thank each and every one who participates, contributes, and donates. Without the support of individual people, businesses, and churches of all denominations in Harlan County, none of this could take place.
Bro. Noe (Joyce,Hunter & Joshua) would love to visit other churches to spread this message of hope to the hungry. Under a powerful anointing and compassion for the less fortunate, inviting the Noe family into your church is a promised blessing.
THY KINGDOM COME,
Returning the Favor
Anthony, Joyce, Hunter & Joshua Noe
