$7,070 raised to impact Peru and the world on #GivingTuesday

by Ali Corona on December 6, 2018 in Hunger Offering

In one day, Texas Baptists provided 1,900 meals for marginalized students in Peru. And that’s just half of it.

Together, Texas Baptists raised $3,800 -- or 1,900 meals-- for Operación San Andrés this past Giving Tuesday. Even more, an additional $3,270 was raised for the Hunger Offering general fund. That’s a total of $7,070 to feed people in need, to support families breaking the cycle of poverty, and to show people the love of Christ. Amazing!

I cannot fully express my gratitude to everyone who participated. Your gifts impact the world -- one meal at a time.

I had the joy to visit Collique, Peru, and talk with the students who now have access to affordable education and nutritious meals, the cooks who lovingly prepare healthy meals, and the amazing staff who create an environment for kids -- and families -- to thrive. I have witnessed the tangible love of Christ through the ministry of Operación San Andrés, which is supported by South Main Baptist Church in Houston and Texas Baptists.

Right now, the money you raised for Operación San Andrés is already en route to its destination. All $3,800 will be transformed into health meals in the name of Christ.

Thank you so much to everyone who gave on Giving Tuesday. You showed up and showed off Christ’s kindness.

Praise God from whom all blessings flow.

Texas Baptists is a movement of God’s people to share Christ and show love by strengthening churches and ministers, engaging culture and connecting the nations to Jesus.

The ministry of the convention is made possible by giving through the Texas Baptists Cooperative Program, Mary Hill Davis Offering® for Texas Missions, Texas Baptists Worldwide and Texas Baptist Missions Foundation. Thank you for your faithful and generous support.
