Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) members from the Ecclesiastical District of Northern Midwest conducted an Aid to Humanity event for the benefit of the residents of the Lake Oaks Senior Apartments on June 25, 2022.
Led by Brother Erman Bendicio, district supervising minister, the district leadership and brethren-volunteers drove an hour-and-a-half from the district office along N. Mason Avenue, Chicago, Illinois, to the venue, a community for people aged 55 or older, situated at Wisconsin Ave., Racine, Wisconsin, USA. There, they handed over care packages and provided basic medical services for the beneficiaries.
Monique Monroe from Switzerland, who has been around the community for 15 years, happily said, “I’m very impressed, everybody’s so happy. Help is needed everywhere and that’s what we’re supposed to do, share, and you’re showing it very well, wonderfully.”
Part of the outreach activity was the sharing of the Good News of salvation. Brother Bendicio taught a Bible-based lesson about the great importance of being counted among God’s chosen people in these last days—the Church Of Christ—and sacred reason why its members intensively spread the good news of His salvation to all and sundry.
“Listening to the minister, I was writing down the Scriptures [Bible verses] so I can read them over myself,” said Beatrice Nolan, a guest. “It seems a well-equipped Church, faithful and kind people. There’s no negativity at all. I enjoyed that.” — With reports from INC News Section
