The Hispanic Ministries Department of the Chesapeake Conference recently started a weekly food bank, in partnership with 4MyCity, a nonprofit organization. During that time, they helped distribute 40,000 boxes of food throughout the southern, northern and eastern regions of the conference.
“This has been an enriching experience,” says Orlando Rosales, Hispanic Ministries director for the Chesapeake Conference. “You get to see and feel the gratitude of the people, as well as their interest in knowing more about our church. People are asking for intercessory prayer for their needs, and, so far, seven families have begun attending our worship meetings.”
