Sangre Grande Open Bible Church has launched its soup kitchen to help the less fortunate in the community.

The launch was in commemoration of the church’s 18th anniversary, which was celebrated last weekend.

Pastor Bridget Fletcher said “the soup kitchen is a project which God laid upon her heart,” and it was one of many projects which they are undertaking. The other projects include: A homework centre, counselling for parents in need of it and assistance for battered women. She said it will cater for 50 people and she hopes to increase it. In addition, they would also be distributing food on a monthly basis to needy families.

Fletcher said she wanted to work along with the business community, MP Glenda Jennings, Chairman of Sangre Grande Regional Corporation Terry Rondon and other stakeholders. She said they are seeking assistance to purchase a piece of land next to the church to build a permanent structure for the soup kitchen. Pastor said they will also be having a Christmas treat for children as part of their public outreach.

Fletcher advised young people to first know God and have a heart to show love to the destitute and homeless. “Assist the battered women and drug addicts,” she urged. She appealed to them to be disciplined, respectable young men and women who must guard against being engulfed in illegal activities so as to become a societal disgrace.

Commenting on the Beetham protest which included blocking roads and the highway on November 23, leaving motorists stranded and traumatised, she said, “These people should know God and if they know God he will guide them and give them vision on the way forward. Fletcher said some of them have no ambition and were focused on getting riches the illegal way.
