Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Helping Orphans And Widows

There was a time that me and my pastor organized a crusade in my homestead. We preached to the villagers and we decided to move from door to door ministry. Here is where we came to realize that in the village we had many orphan and widows so we tried helping by bulding for them houses and buying for them food. As well as clothing them even though we did all that we could not met all there need because of financial problem.
