A total of 1,400 filled boxes have been distributed among poor Christian families in Brazil by members of a church youth group from Germany.

The boxes were filled with dry food staples and hygiene items funded with donations from members of their church in Germany.

Many Brazilian Christians are among those who suffer from extreme levels of poverty.

On the first day of their visit, the 34 members of the group spent time packing boxes at a collection point in Brasilia. Later they took part in the distribution process, visiting seven impoverished neighbourhoods to give the filled boxes to Christians in need.

One stop was at a church-run social project that provides food and activities for mothers and children, where 200 boxes were handed out. Several mothers were also given boxes to take for neighbours who have difficulty walking or carrying.

“There were joyful and happy faces everywhere that day,” said the youth group leader.

A German church leader thanked youth group members for their hard work. “I saw how you packed the food boxes like busy bees and give them to the brothers and sisters in need,” he said.

Give thanks for the generosity of German Christians and youth group members whose support for helped so many Christians in need in Brazil. Ask that the Lord will continue to bless the work of as it responds to help hungry and suffering Christians around the world.
