Spiritual Food in Portugal

We recently received this letter from a grantee providing nourishment to those that are hungry:  
 ‘When I first began working in Portugal in 1978, there were barracas [ed.: rough shacks] on the outskirts of most of the major cities and large towns. Now they are more difficult to find but still too many people are living in abject poverty. For the December holidays, we prepared food parcels for them. We are grateful not only for the space loaned to us…from a local warehouse company but also for the many church volunteers who spent several days putting together the 120 food parcels from the bulk supplies which arrived on pallets from the supermarkets. The Trinitarian Bible Society who provide their Scripture calendars contribute to this programme by providing spiritual food in the language of the people (Portuguese) so that hearts and minds can be touched and made fertile for the Word of God.’
‘And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.’ John 6.35
