Serve without restraint!

Guiding scripture:
"Then the righteous will answer him, 'Lord when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink?

'Truly I tell you whatever you do for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me." Matthew 25: 37-40NIV

Witness through generosity!
