WINCHESTER,VA – For those with sweet taste buds, chocolate is something that is hard to resist.

The Braddock Street United Methodist Church held its 8th Annual Chocolate Festival to support children in Sierra Leone and Mercy Hospital.

“A lot of these children that were on the streets, we want to house them, clothe them, feed them, educate them, expose them to Christianity and essentially save their lives from living in a marketplace,” says David Brewster, who has been working for the African American programs at the church.

In turn, the church used Valentine’s Day as a chance to benefit the church’s mission.
