Central America District supervising minister, Brother Jonathan Jamias, led this humanitarian effort that was held at the Casona Dodonea Event Hall.
“Many residents here are affected by widespread poverty. So through these Care For Humanity events, the Church is able to aid our fellowmen,” said Brother Paul Martinez Jr., district secretary, who assisted the district minister in supervising the event. “As a result also, they might begin to learn more about the Church Of Christ and the teachings of God it upholds.”
During the activity, the attendees were shown video presentations of the extent of the Church’s humanitarian efforts in different parts of the world.
Brother Jamias then introduced the Church Of Christ and some of its basic biblical beliefs. Afterwards, he led his delegation in handing out the care packages to the guest-recipients.
One of the recipients named Nayeli Garcia shared her experience during the event. “At first, my husband and I were curious as to why this Church is helping people here in our place. Then, I was amazed when I saw the video presentation about the Church helping people in various places. And it does so because, as was read by the minister from the Bible, it is a command of God to help those who are in need,” she said. “We are thankful to the Church Of Christ for helping a lot of people here in Guadalajara.”
“We here in Central America District will continue intensifying our efforts not only in helping out our fellowmen with their needs, but also in all other aspects of the Church’s works,” said Brother Martinez. “We will continue to be united with the Executive Minister, Brother Eduardo V. Manalo, in all the activities that he launches in the Church.” — With reports from Lyn Martinez of INC News Section
