Operation Appalachian Food Drive
Operation Appalachian food drive was a Hugh success!
Thank you letter from Sister M. Fidelia of Jenkins, Kentucky:
Dear Friends in Christ,
Thank you very much for your generous offering of food to us for Jesus in the poorest of the poor. Thank you also for your selfless generosity in supporting us in our ministry to give joy to our friends who are less privileged. We recognize that this sharing is only possible because of your thoughtfulness. Surely Jesus will feel loved and will in turn bestow abundant graces and blessings on each one of you.
The kindness you have extended has reached all those whom we are ministering, so on behalf of our beloved friends we are deeply grateful for you.
Our grateful prayers extend to each one of you to all of your loved ones and family members.
Please pray for us. Thank you!
Sincerely in Jesus,
Sr. M. Fidelia
