|The comparable big temple |
At about the same time they figured out that the cafeteria of a local high school, Concordia Middle School (http://www.cmsh.cyc.edu.tw/eng/index.php), often has surplus food which they often dumped dumped. Their concern to help those without food and their observation of the cafeteria that would dump ihts surplus food became the base of a regular caring ministry to them.
|Distribution from the Double|
The school took up the challenge to offer students a project, which would allow them by setting aside parts of a meal to save enough for the poor. Some students and teachers, as well as some parents, volunteered to help by collecting all these portions for distribution. Initially they used their home as their base, but as the operation expanded they moved to their church and ministry partner, Double Blessings Lutheran Church, as the distribution point.Volunteers from the community would gather at the church from y to Friday at 1 pm for the “Grace Meal”, and together they would repackage the food into smaller plastic boxes for distribution to the needy.
|Beth knows amny of these needy |
Our team in Chiayi has many other matters of concern, but this regular ministry turned out to be especially helpful to take care of people in need for help.
