Venezuelan Church in Mission

During the years we have been in ministry in Venezuela we have been privileged to work alongside some wonderful pastors and lay people. They have taught us much about being in ministry in the community.

This Christmas, one of the Methodist churches, Ondas de Paz, reached out to those in need in the hills outside Barquisimeto.

They drove up to an area where there are people in great need.
Inflation is so great in Venezuela that the poor are suffering even more. Finding jobs is difficult and so money is very scarce and hunger abounds.

They were able to bring much appreciated relief. Here is the pastor's wife, Amarylis, giving food to this family.

"As you have done it unto the least of these, you have done it unto me"

A grateful family.
