A New Partnership, More Hope

As the need for food in our ministry in Venezuela arose, we prayed and searched for a way to help supply easy to transport meals from the USA to our partner churches and communities in Venezuela. With the coronavirus crisis, feeding focused ministries were at capacity, and emergency food, such as long shelf life meals […]

Meals of Hope

Venezuela has the biggest oil reserves in the world, but it has been suffering an unprecedented fuel crisis. This has forced people to walk miles to work, leave crops rotting in the fields, or turn to a military-controlled market to buy gas at an exorbitant price.
