There is no such thing as too small

A good deed is never too small. “Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.” Small examples from the big wide world.

Women help prisoners

A group of 185 members from Luanshya in Zambia took the passage from Matthew 25: 31–46, from which this verse is cited, literally: they visited the inmates of the local prison. In his address, Apostle Jacob Mwansa made express reference to the words of Jesus: “I was in prison and you came to Me.”

During the visit the women presented a donation in kind valued at over 500 US dollars. The items had been contributed by the members. A prisoner spoke on behalf of the inmates of the facility and thanked the women for their kindness. The prison choir was on hand to render a few songs of praise, much to the delight of the visitors.

Seniors spread love

A couple of seniors from the Rosedale congregation in Cape Town (South Africa) decided that they were going to reach out to their neighbour. They decided to knit bedsocks and donate them to the residents of the Zandvliet Care Facility in Macassar. The experience was overwhelming to say the least: the recipients were so thankful and appreciative.

The shepherd tends his small flock

No congregation is too small as to warrant the Chief Apostle’s care and attention. This is what Chief Apostle Jean-Luc Schneider proved with his visit to Ulaanbaatar in Mongolia, a country sandwiched between Russia and China. About 170 people attended the service which he conducted. This is a little more than half of all Church members in the country. There are six to eight congregations in Mongolia, which are cared for by Apostle Marat Akchurin together with 15 additional ministers. In Mongolia many people who live outside of the cities still live a nomadic life, which is why the congregations are not always open.
