Day 14 #LightTheWorld: For Where Your Treasure Is, There Will Your Heart Be Also

Approximately forty members of the Eltham ward (congregation) of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints recently organised a food drive to collect food for the Diamond Valley Food Share.

Diamond Valley Food Share is a voluntary organisation ensuring emergency food parcels are available to people in the municipality of Banyule who require assistance to survive homelessness, unemployment, illness or an immediate crisis.

Youth and others dropped letterbox flyers during the week and then door knocked the area on the following Saturday to invite people to contribute food for those in need.

Clive Hayden, who serves as a counsellor in the bishopric of the Eltham ward reflected, "We love this Christmas season where we get to celebrate the life of our Savior Jesus Christ, and with our own small acts of service follow His teachings and emulate His life".

Jesus taught, "For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also."  Matthew 6:21 When we focus on what matters most and on serving others, we can find real treasure - happiness!
