During a very difficult time for the United States because of the spread of Tuberculosis, Mother Theresa said the following:
“The greatest disease in the West today is not TB or leprosy; it is being unwanted, unloved, and uncared for. We can cure physical diseases with medicine, but the only cure for loneliness, despair, and hopelessness is love. There are many in the world who are dying for a piece of bread but there are many more dying for a little love. The poverty in the West is a different kind of poverty — it is not only a poverty of loneliness but also of spirituality. There’s a hunger for love, as there is a hunger for God.”
A bag of groceries does so much more than just feed a family; a simple act of service has the power to unite people, heal hearts, restore friendships, and nurture faith and hope, not just for those who receive it, but for those who have donated and taken it to the families. For a long time, the world screamed, fought, and led people to believe that they did not need an Almighty God. But in these circumstances, we see how the church of Christ, His perfect and almost-ready bride, has stood up without screaming and fighting, to serve others. Our donations and our service reflect the love of a God who is close and attentive to the needs of His people. Every time we give of our time and resources, we extend the Kingdom of God.
Mision Carismatica Internacional (Mission Charismatic International Church) has delivered more than 4,000 bags of groceries to families just in the city of Bogota alone, thanks to the donations and support from church members. It has been a beautiful and powerful thing to see so many families give of the little they had to help others in greater need. Not only were groceries delivered, but neighborhoods were filled with hope, smiles, and brotherly love.

In Matthew 25, Jesus said:
¨For I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’ “Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’¨ (verses 35-40)
Every act of love towards our community is an offering to our Lord Jesus Christ. What a great privilege we have to be able to represent Him on this earth through our service!
