CINCINNATI (Angela Ingram) -- A group of volunteers abandons the comforts of home on the holidays to help the homeless. There's tons of food at Prince of Peace Church, but not much space. Hundreds of people showed up looking for fellowship and a hot meal.The men and woman call themselves the Mustard Seed Servants. Instead of spending time home with their families in West Chester, they spent their own money and drive to OTR with giving hearts.Thanksgiving Day was the first time the volunteers gave up their holiday time at home. They set up games for the kids, television to watch football and later, decorated Christmas trees. There were about 70 people there that day. And on that day, the men and women promised people in OTR that their trip was not a one-time event.Many of the people who walked through the doors may not have known the volunteers, but church workers say here, no one is a stranger.We think of ourselves as friends that just have not met yet. We are here to let them know that we care. We love them. And our goal would be to show the love that Jesus has for them through us.The church had such a large turnout that some people had to wait outside for a chance to come in and enjoy the meal. Volunteers estimate that at least 250 people showed up Wednesday.
