Clients of the Gospel Mission were  treated to a feast fit for kings.

A shipment of fresh Atlantic lobsters had been damaged, and a courier company needed to  find someone to take it, or they would have to be thrown out, said Ami Catriona, of the Mission.

“It seems Kelowna’s Gospel Mission takes in broken souls and broken lobsters,” she said, in a press release.

As Pastor Lester went to rescue the abandoned crustaceans, Matt, the Mission’s cook, made ready two big pots of salted boiling water.

“A short time later Pastor Lester delivered into the kitchen two huge boxes, which were broken and falling apart, with lobsters in various states of disarray,” she said.

“It took all afternoon to cook them all, and we had to get an extra couple of hands on deck to separate the claws and tails, but it was worth it. Last night, Kelowna’s Gospel Mission had a serious seafood fiesta dinner. On the menu, lobster and sole with fresh garden salad, courtesy of an ‘accident’.”

Every day the men and women who run the Mission are so grateful for the donations that are provided to them.

“And every day there is always something different, but never in a million years did we dream of  something like lobster,” said Catriona.
