Jesus multiplied food twice in the Bible—and He’s still doing it today. It all happened during an Operation Mobilization (OM) prison outreach in Oaxaca, Mexico. Organizers had enough food for 70 people. But after the service started at the men’s prison in Pochulta, the inmates came in droves.
The meeting began with praise and worship, and a former drug addict offered his moving testimony, OM reported. Next came a drama, then a sermon from the Word of God that challenged the prisoners. OM reported that several men were so touched by the messages that tears ran down their cheeks.
Then, the grand finale: a meal and a miracle. “We prayed for God to multiply the food,” said a prison outreach coordinator. “By the end of the service there were 200 men attending.”
There was only enough food for 70. So the volunteers prayed, and God showed up.
“I could hardly believe it, but it happened,” the woman said. “As we were handing the food out to the inmates, it didn’t run out. We even had enough plates and spoons for 200 men! When we gave food to the last person in line, it finally ran out. God’s name be praised!”
