Service Near and Far

I wanted to highlight some wonderful local news stories.

In Seguin, Texas, the local ward has worked to donate more than 40,000 lbs of food to the Christian Cupboard food pantry. Much of the food had been produced by members themselves at local church farms and factories.

Meanwhile, in Barranquilla, Colombia, the youth in the branch partnered with a local foundation for underprivileged youth to distribute breakfast, play sports, and give gifts to them. (The article is in Spanish.)

While most service from Latter-day Saints goes unreported, it is always nice to be reminded of the great service those of our faith are inspired to do. Perhaps even their projects may inspire some of your own.
