Humanitarian mission to Peru with 20 services offered and volunteers from all over Latin America.

LIMA, PERU—A humanitarian mission was planned to assist the brethren and communities in Peru. The mission took place after terrible floods hit the country earlier in 2017. The project was a result of the combined forces of the Welfare Department of the Brazilian Unions (The Good Samaritan), and the local brethren in Peru.

Drinking water or other liquid with a meal is a common habit. But there are very compelling reasons to not engage in this practice.

You have likely heard that we should chew our food properly. There are many reasons why this is important. Chewing grinds the foods into small particles. The smaller the particle the more readily it can be coated with the digestive enzymes present in our saliva, which in turn start digestion.

"Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you" (Matthew 5:10–12).

Called, and Chosen, and Faithful


Cherishing the call of God

“Many be called, but few chosen” (Matthew 20:16).


Christ gave this thought-provoking declaration to conclude the parable of the householder who hired laborers early in the morning to work throughout the day in his vineyard. The laborers agreed to work for a penny.


Later, at the third, sixth, ninth, and eleventh hour, the householder extended the call to

others and promised to pay whatever was right.
