‘A crazy path’ brings Thanksgiving dinner and inspiration to forgotten Blaine, Ky.

Last Saturday, the main road through Blaine Ky. was choked with parked cars, which is an event in itself because Blaine hardly ever gets crowded any more. The owners of those cars formed a long line outside the God’s Hands Ministries, waiting to collect a turkey dinner. Inside, Rachel Wheeler, who organized the giveaway, prayed with volunteers and Jack Van Vlack, who raised money for 160 boxes of dressing, mashed potatoes, rolls, pie and iced tea: “I’m so thankful for each and every one of you,” Wheeler said amid tears. “Now when you put the boxes on the wagon, don’t squish the pie and don’t squish the bread.” Yes, this is a Thanksgiving story.
