To – People at the food bank and congregation

 I want to thank you for what you did today Tues 3rd 2014.

 The food parcel was amazing and it has given meals to enjoy. After talking to me about the welfare fund I applied and received food vouchers which I pick up tomorrow. This isn’t about over spending on drugs or alcohol which I do not use but genuine need. I did find myself in situation where extra expenses had to be paid through a sudden death, travel and accompanying and supporting my daughters and grandson in Aberdeen where he has lost both father and grandad in space of 4 weeks in last month.

I know God is good even when it is dark and tough and it is in dark times that he will answer prayer. My faith has been tested this year but I know god never forsakes or leaves and his love surpasses all understanding. I want to thank you all and the people in the church who gave. May he holy bless you in your walk with him.

 A receiver of God’s and your’s blessing.
