Our Last Friendship Lunch in Our Boca do Rio Bldg

For our last friendship lunch of the year and the last one in our old building, we fed close to 120 people. It was a great turn-out not only by needy people but a great turn-out of our members and friends to help serve our community. Our friend Cleiton came to help us serve and he whitnessed one of the homeless men telling us, "Now if I can care as much about myself as you people care about me, maybe I can stay sober." We had an entire soccer team (the kids that play near our church) join our lunch that day as well. It was an exciting day but a little sad realizing that our benevolence ministry will have to change when we move.
