Disaster Relief and Assistance Program: Feeding the poor after the typhoon and calamities.
Vietnam Outreach launched Project Manna in the early 1990’s after a vicious typhoon swept through Central Vietnam. Hundreds of thousands were left homeless, people were starving. Through a miracle of provision Vietnam Outreach was able to provide a month’s food to 17,000 people. Since then several other major relief campaigns have been mounted, providing food for millions of meals. Vietnam knows only too well the bitter sting of floods and typhoons that swing in each year from the South China Sea.
The parable of the Good Samaritan in Luke chapter 10 reminds us to “love our neighbour as we love ourselves.” That simply means to do for others what we would want someone to do for us if we were in their situation. James 2:16 shares “Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes or daily food. If one of you says to him, “Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? In the same way faith by itself, if not accompanied by action is dead.” Project Manna translates faith into action by feeding those who are hungry, clothing those who are naked in accordance with our Isaiah 61 calling.
Manna, the bread of life.
