The Maranatha Church Food Pantry Ministry is preparing to launch their 2011 food pantry ministry for the upcoming days of winter. We are asking your help in making this possible .
Our church is located in the southeast part of Houston . In this community
it is a low poverty stricken area ,there are many families, single moms with small children, and the elderly living in poor conditions .We are constantly reaching out to those in need that live in the community, and those that are members of the church , showing them the Love of Christ.
The scriptures remind us of the words of Christ when he said in Matthew 25th chapter verse 34 thru 46 / it reads:
Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat:
I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
We are very excited to be able to minister to those in need . Our funds are limited from the ministries of our church, we have given donations of free milk , many bags of groceries to the elderly and single mothers with small children , we motivate the young children by sponsoring fun day for the youth in the community , we was blessed to have health professionals to come and donate their time for a free health clinic seminar for those that can't afford health services , we even provide transportation for those who need it. As God lead you you can be a blessing to those in need by donating online . We thank you and may God richly bless you is our prayer .
