Sunday morning meal

But Peter said, “I have no silver and gold, but what I have I give you; In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth stand up and walk.”  Acts 3:6

In Timor-Leste over 40% of kids under 5 are malnourished.  Clinic Immanuel and Immanuel Church can’t solve that.  This is a community of the poor serving the poor.  But poverty does not preclude serving in ways that give life.  The Clinic together with the church has a simple feeding program for Sunday school kids.  The meal not only provides much needed healthy food, it also teaches youth that Christian faith leads to action on behalf of others.

Here are a few pics from todays meal.

Kids get weighed before eating so clinic staff can keep track of their weight.
