The Welcare project planned by our District Apostle NE Barnes during the first week in June 2015 finally became a reality.

 

Priests used the days during the week to focus on Soul Care Visits to the less fortunate members and also supplemented their grocery cupboards with a donation of canned foods.

Saturday  6 June 2015 was the highlight of this project, when all the congregations in the Bishop Area arranged soup kitchens. Soup was served, either from the premises of the congregations or key distribution points in the community, to the members of the community. This proved to be a great success. People came from all over and even surrounding areas to enjoy a meal of soup and bread. The thankfulness was expressed by all and even those from other denominations.

The brothers and sisters where so overwhelmed that they have now taken it on themselves to host this kind of an event on a monthly basis.
