Family Assistance is a program that the organization puts in place to help families in need of spiritual, social, and educational help. For more than 6 months the organization has been distributing kits to families in need, we do this every month.
We started with 10 families, each month the number of families is increasing, this June 2020 we distributed more than 50 kits to families who are really in need.
1 kit per family; the kit includes rice, beans, oil, spaghetti, salmon, etc... Each of these kits costs $ 50. These families that we have in this program are really in deplorable situations.
Food Distribution KIT
We thank God for the opportunity that He has given us at Sent to Serve so that we can help those in need, the word of God said ‘’we must reach out to the weakest’’ (Hebrew 13 v 16). We honor God's name because he can use us as his hand and feet for His kingdom.
In June 2020 we went to distribute these kits, we had the privilege of talking with some of the family members, who shared their feelings about the impact that Sent To Serve is making in Haiti through several communities such as Delmas, Tabarre, and Pernier. We had some touching testimonies that we will share with you:
Testimony of the Program Director
We thank God for opening the door to Sent To Serve so that young women and young men can serve, we can say that the Assistance Family reached 58 families who couldn’t afford to eat, as the word says there are more blessings for those who give than received (Acts 20 v 35). As a leader this portion of scripture helps me develop my leadership skills, to be able to help people for the kingdom, we are not only giving people food but we are also mentoring them. We are trying to teach them also how to help themselves and others for the kingdom. God did not call us to be famous but to be His servants.
I thank God for this program Family Assistance for the great work they are doing in the community, for the family because we usually haven’t eaten anything, but with the Kit, we are relieved especially in the pandemic COVID-19 period we cannot go out and no work, the kit really help us.
I feel good, it's very significant and a gesture of humility, I see God is working, the families are testified that it is God who makes this provision because they haven’t anything to eat, there are some people that can't buy even a bag of rice, but when they receive the Kit they were very happy. Family Assistants are doing a great job especially at this time of COVID-19 because it is difficult for many people to go to work and do business activities.
