The Shed That Fed a Million Children
The Extraordinary Story of Mary's Meals. By Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow. We interviewed Magnus about his Medjugorje story which ultimately started his life's work, Mary's Meals. He travels all over the world, setting up food and school supplies for children who didn't ever go to school. He realized early on that if the food is always served in school, the parents will allow their hungry children to attend school, instead of having to work at home. Yes, it started when he was a teenager and began driving supplies to war torn Medjugorje and surrounding areas, all the way from his home in Scotland. Then Mary's Meals was born because one child answered Magnus' question, "What do you want to do when you grow up?"
He responded, "I would like to have enough food to eat and I would like to be able to go to school one day." His wife to be, Julie, began driving trucks to Bosnia also, and now helps her husband feed the children of the world. They have seven children of their own. Magus' father donated a shed on his property to house all the food and supplies that neighbors began bringing to them in the beginning. That shed has become the title of this book. We see terrible things happening in this world today and then we read about Magnus and Julie and their helpers and hope is reborn. You'll never forget this ongoing story of faith and commitment.
