Ami lives in Okinawa, Japan. Because of COVID-19, lots of people there had trouble getting food. So Ami’s ward planned a food drive. She really wanted to help!
They all met at the Church building. They were careful as they worked. Ami wore a mask.
Ami put cardboard boxes together. When the boxes were full of food, she closed them so they could be taped shut. Ami kept thinking of how Jesus fed people with loaves and fishes. She was glad to help give food to hungry people like He did.
