I was hungry and you gave me food.

“For I was hungry and you gave me food…” 

Matthew 25:35

Jesus tells us today that when we help people who are hungry, thirsty, sick or in prison, we are growing closer to him.

Sister Anthonia works at a clinic to help pregnant and new mums in Sierra Leone. She helped Lombeh become strong again. She says the reason she works so hard to help others is because of her love, for God and for people she meets.

Let’s try to have that same love of God and others.

Activity
