Heavens Helpers Soup Cafe
Bismarck, ND 58504
Details: Out of the fruit of the Heaven's Helpers ministry, the Soup Cafe was opened in March of 2009 in the old "Hawk's Pit-stop" gas station. The purpose in opening the Soup Cafe was to show the love of Jesus Christ by feeding people both physically and spiritually free of charge. This location was chosen by God Himself. Four months before we opened the Soup Cafe and one month before we even knew we were going to be doing a soup kitchen, a group of high school girls were driving around praying for the city of Bismarck when they heard the voice of the Lord tell them to go to our current location which was then an abandoned gas station. The Lord told them to STOP and pray over this building and said that He was going to do something big in this place. These girls proceeded to lay hands on the building and pray over it. Then they walked around the building praying for over an hour. God had ordained this location even before we had decided to open the Soup Cafe! The Soup Cafe is not set up as a typical "soup kitchen" but more like a cafe. We encourage patrons to seat themselves while we serve them by taking their order and bringing them their food. We are set up just like a restaurant only with Christian music or teaching playing on the flat screen TV. We serve at least two homemade soups each day along with two types of sandwiches along with dessert and coffee. Patrons are allowed to eat as much as they want; as long as they do not waste the food we will continue serving them. Our customer base includes the homeless on the street, homeless living in their cars, individuals on disability, working poor, elderly, and those in need who just want a homemade bowl of soup. Everything at the Soup Cafe is given to people free of charge including bread, desserts, Bibles and books which people can take home. We do have a free will box for anyone who is lead to contribute to our monthly expenses. This is the only source of revenue for the Soup Cafe. Since we receive no government funding and do not solicit funds, we rely completely on God. He has been so faithful from the very beginning always paying the bills and providing food. We do not go to the grocery store or cook by recipes, instead we use what God provides and cook with what we have. God plans the menu, not us. At the Soup Cafe we provide spiritual needs on a daily basis for those who need prayer, Bible council, or just an ear to listen. Bible studies are held Tuesday evenings, Wednesdays for kids, Fridays and Sunday mornings. We are an alternative for many people who would never feel comfortable inside a real church and offer them an opportunity to know Jesus through His teachings and our actions.
