International (MNN) — Easter can be a wonderful time of celebration for families as they focus together on all Christ has done for them. This year, it could also be an opportunity for your family to help others around the world in a small way in response to the help Christ has given you.
Food for the Hungry is dedicated to serving the physical and spiritual needs of the poor across the globe. One of the ways they do this is by giving those that would like to help the chance to choose where their money will go. As is the case with many ministries, an effective way to do this has been through catalogs.
This year, Food for the Hungry is offering a special New Life combo for struggling families across the globe. The package includes four rabbits and two chickens, which will provide nutrition in the form of meat and eggs for a hungry family. Surplus livestock can also be sold for other necessities.
A New Life Easter combo only costs $50. The catalog has a few other Easter opportunities as well.
Consider using this initiative as an opportunity to bring your family together in service this Easter. Decide what to purchase together and pray for the people to whom the gifts will be sent.
