Last 5th Sunday Hunger Offering of Year and New Video Released

by Ali Hearon on October 18, 2016 in CLC

Good news! The new Hunger Offering video is now released and ready to watch.

“Texas Baptist Hunger Offering at work in Spain” highlights Iglesia Evangelica Bautista’s food pantry in Cerdanyola, Spain, a Hunger Offering ministry. 

The video introduces Antonia and Pedro, a couple who struggled financially due to the Spanish economic crash in 2008. After receiving assistance, they answered the call to give back and serve their community on a weekly basis. 

There are two versions of the video. The full-length version is two-and-a-half minutes, while the short version is only a minute long. Both videos are bilingual in Spanish and English and are ready to share on social media.  

This is a pivotal time for the Texas Baptist Hunger Offering. October 30 is the last 5th Sunday Hunger Offering of the year. Giving to the Hunger Offering has been down this year.

Gather your church together and collect money to end hunger and help break the cycle of poverty for families across Texas and around the world. We suggest you show this video or another Hunger Offering video before taking the Offering. 

Also, be sure to register for the upcoming 20th Anniversary Hunger Luncheon. The luncheon will be at the Texas Baptist Annual Meeting in Waco at 11:45 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 15. 

In “Texas Baptist Hunger Offering at work in Spain,” Pastor Daniel Banyuls eloquently states, “Social ministry and the Christian testimony are woven together perfectly in this city. Our passion for the social ministry is birthed in the gospel, in the example of Jesus, who teaches us how to love one another as we love ourselves.” 

These words ring true in Spain, as well as in Texas and around the world. May we follow Jesus’ example and live a life of radical service and love for our neighbors. 

If you have any questions about the video, 5th Sunday, or the luncheon, feel free to reach out to Ali Hearon at
