#FeedingMen | Light The World Day 7 - Jesus Fed the Hungry and So Can You

I have been following The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints Christmas initiative at mormon.org, called Light the World.   For 25 days I can do the things that Jesus did in my home and community.   Today is the 7th day; Jesus Fed the Hungry and So Can You.    

“And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.”

— Matthew 14:19

Here are a few things that I have done to honor today's goals;  I donated to a a charity that provides fresh fruits and vegetables to seniors who cannot grocery shop for themselves.   We paid fast offerings to help fund programs that reach the needy in our ward.
