What we do in His Name is always an Inspiration to others
The annual J.O.P. Food Drive at St John the Evangelist church in Naples, Florida, on the weekend of March 4-5, 2017, supported our ministry in Jamaica with enthusiasm and lots of food donations. An ocean bound container left the parish grounds on May 6th with six hundred labeled cartons of food and goods. Over five hundred of those were cartons of food. Among them were 129 cartons of cereal, 106 cartons of pasta, 97 cartons of canned vegetables, and 34 cartons of rice. Each carton of rice contained approximately 35 lbs of rice packages. Additional cartons contained soup, flour, oatmeal, canned fruit, beans, juice, and shelled nuts. Not all cartons listed on the manifest contained food. Donated optical and dental supplies, handmade clothing, text books, and a carton of handmade toys made by a wood craft club in Naples, were also entered on the container’s manifest.
In the name of those Jamaicans who will receive the food and goods collected, we extend sincere thanks and appreciation to everyone who contributed to the success of the Food Drive. What we do in His name is always an inspiration to others to do the same.
