Secondary’s 100 Lunch Bags

Fera Gunawan Times News

Last Sunday morning 2021 April 18, the grade 11 class met to prepare one hundred lunch bags for the homeless in continuation of our Vancouver Missions Trip that we started back in March.
We started the morning by organizing our supplies and setting up our work stations. The lunch bags consisted of various food items, such as sandwich wraps, water bottles/juice boxes, packaged and homemade goodies, fruit, and disposable masks.
After a little over an hour of hard work, we finished putting together our one hundred lunch bags and shortly set out to deliver them to Union Gospel Mission (UGM), the non-profit organization that distributed the lunch bags. When we got there, we were able to meet some of the UGM staff. They were very grateful for our efforts and encouraged us to keep serving the community, as we would gain invaluable experience from our service. This marked the end of our day.
From this project, I learned that everyone can serve their community regardless of their age. It can be in organized events such as our 100 lunch bags project, or it can be something as small as giving a stranger a smile. Even if it may seem like an insignificant action, just sharing Christ’s love in tangible ways can have a lasting impact and make their day.
