RMCNews with Anton Kapusi – Pueblo, Colorado … The Pueblo First Adventist Church is providing blessings to their neighborhood 24 hours a day through a new self-serve cabinet, called the Blessing Box, in front of the church.
The white and red cabinet can be seen from the community surrounding the church. Inside the Blessing Box are supplies for individuals who may need extra help.
Anton Kapusi, Pueblo First Church lead pastor, explained the idea, which comes from Philippians 2:4 – “Instead of each person watching out for their own good, watch out for what is better for others.”
The box contains grab-and-go snacks, canned soups, noodles, sauces, warm socks, blankets, and personal hygiene items, including toothbrushes, toothpaste, washcloths, and body care items.
Kapusi reflected on the project stating, “The best blessing has come from the surrounding community beginning to take part in keeping the Blessing Box filled and watched over when we are not around. We are grateful and blessed to have our community participating in this project!”
What is the expected outcome of the newly funded project? “We have great hopes for this project going forward that we may not only relieve the immediate needs of our community but in time may be allowed to tend to their spiritual needs as well,” said Kapusi.
