Way back in 1986 pastor Frank Deutsch was led by God to start a ministry to the poor, the homeless and the hungry in East Austin. Since then, The Austin Baptist Chapel/Angel House Soup Kitchen has been faithfully serving the “least of these” on Austin’s east side. In 1990, Frank decided to start serving a hot lunch seven days a week. Angel House now serves between 300-400 people a day. You can do the math.
Before we served lunch, we worshiped with the congregation of the Austin Baptist Chapel and received some anointed biblical teaching.
Frank’s secret soup recipe was amazing! That’s some serious soup.
I was thrilled to run into one of my heroes, David Seaborn. David was a record-setting running back at Austin High and Baylor that I used to cheer for as a kid. David is a pastor and a member of the board of directors for the Angel House. He also preaches there three times a month.
I’m so proud of my friend Frank and his obedience. It would be impossible to measure the impact he’s had on the the lives of Austin’s needy.
