Richmond, VA — The Saint Paul’s Baptist Church is donating over 15,000 canned goods during its food drive to the Central Virginia Food Bank.
What started off as just an ordinary missions project for the members of Saint Paul’s and the staff at its affiliate organization, Charisma Books and Gifts has turned into an enormous act of God. “This years annual food drive has by far exceeded our expectations”, says Senior Pastor Dr. Lance Watson, “be careful what you ask for because God just may do it”.
A special plea went out seven weeks ago requesting all members to help in collecting 10,000 cans to donate to the Central Virginia Food Bank. Little to his surprise would this plea move on the hearts of two members who are also employees of SuperValu Grocery, who would then returned to work on Monday and diligently worked to solicit the participation of SuperValu in the food drive. Without hesitation to help those in need SuperValu graciously responded by donating 10,000 cans to begin building the wall of faith. As more members continued to add to the wall, other organizations also responded by donating cans. Those included: Martins, Kroger and Food Lion.
On December 19th the Wall of Faith built from 15,000 cans, will be officially presented to representatives from the Central Virginia Food Bank.
The donation ceremony will be held during morning worship services on Sunday, December 19th at 10 am at the Creighton Campus, located at 4247 Creighton Road in Richmond. All local media are invited to attend.
