Briefly: NSU Wesley, Health Talk series


NSU Wesley feeds 200

TAHLEQUAH, Okla. — It’s not out of the ordinary to see the windows of the Wesley Foundation building fogged with steam from its kitchen, and Jan. 15 was no exception.
Each year on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the Northeastern State University community honors Dr. King with a day of service. Students sign up to serve in teams on tasks all over Tahlequah.
This year, the university contacted the Wesley with the opportunity to serve a meal to the volunteers. Director Shana Dry and her own team of Wesley volunteers prepared dozens of grilled-cheese sandwiches and more than 6 gallons of soup.
Students were invited in from the 30-degree chill that day to enjoy lunch. In total, 200 student volunteers left with full stomachs and full hearts.
The Wesley at NSU has emblazoned upon its wall a statement of commitment to demonstrate the love of God to campus and community. For this ministry, that means preparing food, and lots of it.
