Yearly Gift Giving To Our Less Privileged Neighbors

For about 7 years now we have distributed bags of groceries in our less privileged neighbors in our present place in Balulang during the Christmas season. When we transferred our residence here in Balulang 7 years ago, we found out that we have lots of neighbors who barely survive only through simple jobs such as driving tricylces, selling banana cues, doing laundries and etc. So, my late husband was so kindhearted that he gave some of these families groceries every Christmas. Then during summer our church also conducts Daily Vacation Bible Studies for our neighbor's children. After that, we now have regular every Saturday bible studies for the families. All these activities started because of our gift giving every Christmas.

When my husband passed away and I was left alone and retired from my job, my children took this Christmas gift giving as our family project. All of my children and I contribute a specific amount of money each year to buy the groceries for our less privileged neighbors. Indeed during this event, it is also an opportunity for us to share our spiritual blessings as well as our material blessings to them.

Now that we had built our church in our compound, the scope for the gift giving has widened, not only our immediate neighbors became the beneficiaries but also to those familes who lived a little further from us. Our family took charge of the buying of groceries for each family while our church took charge the food and the prizes of the games.

It was really a joy in our hearts that one way or another we had shared our blessings to some people.
