Through the generosity of our partners, we were able to prepare and distribute more than 200 food hampers to families in need in Nazareth. These families were so thankful and also surprised at the same time! They asked us why we are doing these deeds of kindness? We then explained to them that it’s because of the love of Jesus that we reach out to all in need, to bring comfort and joy to those who are broken and discouraged.
We share with them about God’s love for them, and how it is desire to provide in their needs, with physically and spiritually, and that He has a wonderful plan of salvation for them through His son, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus came to us and showed us what it means to give and to serve. He went about doing good, healing, feeding, comforting and delivering. He is indeed the good Shepherd who lays down His life for the sheep.
Matthew 20:28 – “just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve”
Let us follow the Lord’s example by reaching out and meeting the needs of those who are poor, hungry and destitute. Together, let us put our faith into action!
Every month we supply more than 60 families, Jewish and Arab, with nutritious food hampers. These hampers contain non-perishable food items that are useful for daily meal preparations. In Nazareth there are many in need and the Lord has instructed to be His hands of provision. We have also seen how people’s hearts have opened as they see the love of Jesus reflected though our feeding project. People start asking questions as to why we are doing what we are doing, and then we happily share with them about the love of God which moves us to care for those in need.
