In May of 2015, Iglesia Bíblica Bautista de Manta, started a new ministry. The name was chosen, because it declares a huge truth and responsibility we have as believers in Christ. We have been blessed by the Lord, and these blessings have been given to us so that we can bless others!
Each month, the church in Manta, prepares boxes of basic staples and they are handed out to families in need. The families have been recommended by others, and registered. They must arrive on the day appointed, meet with counselors who pray with them, and answer any spiritual questions they may have. After this, they spend time listening to a short message. Then they are called 1 by 1 to pick up their boxes.
The basic boxes cost about $25 each, to fill. Some months we have been given extra money and have been able to provide each family with a chicken! What a treat this is for each family!
If you would like to donate to support this ministry, you can find information on our “How to Give” page. Every dollar designated to “Blessed to Bless” goes to purchase food for the families in this ministry.
