Web site provides for an opportunity to make a pilgrimage with the poor. “As you walk in Christ’s footsteps among the poor, you recognize Him in the faces of the hungry, destitute, homeless and forgotten. ”
Since the founding of Food For The Poor in 1982, Christians from across the country have traveled on regular pilgrimages to visit their poor brothers and sisters in the slums of the Caribbean
Each year, hundreds of these pilgrims have found a deeper understanding of God’s grace as they come face-to-face with Third World poverty. These are spiritual experiences treasured for a lifetime.
As you walk in Christ’s footsteps among the poor, you recognize Him in the faces of the hungry, destitute, homeless and forgotten. The life-changing experience builds a very special stewardship towards the poor and nurtures your faith. Each visit with the poor develops a keener sense of community among the caring. Your pilgrimage experience helps to build a “living bridge” to educate First World Christians about the harsh realities of life for Third World Christians.
