Thank God it’s Friday!
This week went by in a flurry of activity, as we prepared for our annual Donor Banquet, which we hosted this past Thursday night. We were so grateful to have had the help of Centerpoint Community Church from Granite Bay, and Canyon Lake Community Church, from Murrietta, as well as many Mission Builders and backpackers, from Canada, the US, Brazil, Spain, France, and the Netherlands.
And what a night it was! We hosted around a hundred donors, vendors, service-people, and their families, as well as nearly 70 Gleanings volunteers from all over the globe. We feasted on prime rib and cheesecake, made new friends, heard an amazing message from Josh Olson, a missionary to China, and above all, gave thanks to our God for all the people who make Gleanings for the Hungry what it is.
Thank you so much for the part that you play in allowing this ministry to fulfill its mission of feeding the hungry of the world, both physically, and spiritually. May God bless you abundantly, and may you know how very glad we are to have you as part of our team!
