In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, Nazarenes from the Casa de Oración Church of the Nazarene in Cali, Colombia, decided to gather food and pack it so that they could deliver it to people in need.

“Because of the social distancing measures during this time, we cannot give a hug or a hand to others to express our appreciation, and bringing food to people who don't have it is one way to show God's love,” said pastors Nineye and Adalberto Herrera.

The church has given out roughly 2,000 bags of food and benefited nearly 10,000 people. In addition to the food donated, they’ve cooked roughly 3,800 meals for those in need in the community as well. 

The distribution was possible in large part due to the help of the church’s youth and local volunteers, as well as donations from church members and through church funds.

"We thank God for allowing us to reach hundreds of families, who are going through need today,” the Herreras said. “We have seen tears of happiness and gratitude. Thank you, because together we make this possible. The church continues its march!"
