Blessing by sharing from the heart is what the spirit of the holidays is all about.Warm delicious meals will feed many hungry people during this holiday season. Thanks to the donations that are given to the many local agencies. One of these agencies is Christian Ministries which is affiliated with Highland Church of Christ.Becky Almanza, has been Director of Christian Ministries for two years and has also been a volunteer in the ministry for twenty years. “It is a ministry of the church. God tells us to help those that are poor. I get to meet many people from the community and help them out. We helped sixty people today with food. {{more}}This ministry, which has been a part of the community for a good time, enables those that are in between jobs and/or have children to feed that cannot totally make ends meet with their income. The ministry has been a part of all other local community ministry support for many years. It will continue to provide as long as there is a need. The shelves will be stocked up as long as there are giving hearts to donate. “The more people we serve, the less we have. We depend on donations. It is hard to get donations,” said Almanza.It is all a matter of the holiday spirit, and the joyful feelings of love that comes from within. Sometimes even the wealthiest that do the donating end up in a crisis, and the blessings will go back to those loving hearts. Photo by Frances Gonzalez-Boyd
