I want to thank all who had any part in making last year’s Thanksgiving drive another success! Thanks to those who provided food bags and gift cards, sorted through them, delivered them to BE Transformed house, and helped with the Fall Festival. It blesses us all to be involved.
I want to share a miracle story about the bags. When we were gathering the bags, a young couple arrived at church between the services.They brought in 50 bags! I thought they looked familiar, so I thanked them and introduced myself. They told me they had never been to Res, just that they had looked online for a church doing a food drive and found us. They hoped the bags would go to people in need. I was awestruck and speechless! I told them they were angels and thanked them profusely. I asked them if they wanted to stay for the service, but they declined, saying they needed to get back to Virginia!
I emailed a thank you to a name I didn't know from the sign-up, hoping that was correct. It was! The woman said that she had signed up to bring 15 bags originally and had told some friends what she was doing. They added the rest of the bags!
For me, stories like this show how God blesses us all daily, those who give of themselves and those with whom we share. I am grateful that Church of the Resurrection values service. I urge everyone to reach out in any way, big or small, to help others. The blessings are tenfold.
Thank you, Edie Townsend
