There is still great need in the country of Venezuela, and many people there are in a desperate situation.  We have received many notes and pictures from the churches who have received boxes from our last shipments, and they are so thankful for the aid!  A report just came out that says that the minimum wage in Venezuela is now at less than $1.00 per day.
We will be having another food drive at Brentwood Hills on Sunday, February 7th, to benefit the Christians in Venezuela. Tables will be set up in the foyer so that you can drop off your donations when you come to worship at 8:15 or 10:30 – or anytime until 3:00 PM.

If you prefer to donate monetarily to this effort, you can do that here.
