The socio-civic endeavors, led by Brother Jonathan V. Jamias, district supervising minister, assisted by Honduras and Villanueva group worship services (GWS) resident minister Brother Paul C. Martinez, Jr., benefited the residents of Las Cascadas in the city of Choloma and Villareal in the city of Villanueva.
The Care for Humanity event in Las Cascadas was held in the morning and the one in Villareal in the afternoon, 50 kilometers south of Cascadas.
Residents of the two communities received care packages containing basic food items and toys for children handed out by the delegation of Church officers and members.
In addition, Las Cascadas, through its governing unit, also received cash donation from the Church Of Christ through the Felix Y. Manalo (FYM) Foundation in support of the community’s development projects.
In both events, a brief study of God’s words, focused on the importance of the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) in attaining salvation, was led by Brother Jamias prior to giving out of care packages.
“This activity was truly beneficial because not only we were able to help those in need but, most importantly, the people were given the chance to know what the Church Of Christ is through God’s words written in the Bible taught to them,” remarked Rodrigo De Villa from the Honduras GWS, who was part of the delegation.
Cecilia Tabobo, from the same GWS, said it was hoped that “The care packages distributed to the residents were a big help for them. Thanks to Brother Eduardo V. Manalo, the Executive Minister, for the love he has shown to the people here in Honduras.”
“We are immensely happy because the Care for Humanity event reached Cascadas and Villanueva,” said Cresencia Mazaredo from the Villanueva GWS. “Thank you so much Brother Eduardo Manalo for the compassion we have received through such events.” — With reports from Lyn H. Martinez of INC News Section
