THANK YOU TO ALL OUR READERS
(Follow-up from yesterday's post)
Dear Mr MOUBARAK,
Forgive me for sounding familiar but you really are a joy-bringer! Your wonderful donation
of £25 which we have safely received is truly a much needed gift this Christmas and I’m so grateful. By way of a thank you, I’ll tell you why your gift is so special.
This really is our busiest season. Our Salvation Army officers, staff and volunteers work flat out for weeks, and do you know, we wouldn’t want it any other way! Our caring ministry is our joyful task every day, all year, but Christmas time is when loneliness is at its worst, hunger is cruel, poverty can be grinding and the biting weather can make the streets a killer for people when the pavement is their home. Christmas and winter are our busiest time because for many, it is sadly the worst time.
Your Christmas donation was probably one of the kindest things you could have done. Loneliness will become laughter, hunger will be satisfied, children will smile and laugh, families will have Christmas and homeless people will get the support they need to start afresh. What a great gift you have made with your support for The Salvation Army.
So thank you, sincerely and deeply. And just as you have touched the lives of the people we help, may this message bring you the warmth of genuine thanks and appreciation, and may that warmth stay with you. Believe me, you deserve it!
In case you need it for your records your donation reference is SARM20181206-1519-96970.
May God bless you and your loved ones.
Lieut-Colonel David Kelly
On behalf of all the members of The Salvation Army
