On Saturday April 6, several women gathered in the church’s gym to work together on a variety of service projects, including providing canned goods for the Union Rescue Mission, decorating items for a Lady Bugg House fund raiser, creating special treats for Jackson Elementary staff, and small gift bags for Victory in the Valley.
We received a big “Thank You” from Victory in the Valley, here’s a letter from Diana Thomi explaining how the gift bags we made will benefit many.
Victory in the Valley would like to take a moment to thank each of you for all of the hard work you put in to making 500 treat bags for our patients. The time you each invested in those treasures will bless not only the patients who receive the treat bags but also others such as nurses, doctors, etc who see the treat bags. What a great witness of the love of Christ.
Our Hospitality Centre sees approximately 1,300 patients per month so you are impacting many lives. The extra time you took to write encouraging words on each of hte bags gives an extra special meaning to those that need a dose of joy and blessing.
Donations, whether financial or in-kind, are at the heart of what makes Victory in the Valley successful. As you are aware, VIV is here to encourage cancer patients and their families on their journey by offering HOPE through emotional and spiritual support, while providing practical services to improve the quality of their lives. From daily contacts made at the Hospitatlity Centre or Victory house ro our East/West Run in May or Women’s Weekend in August, we hear so many stories of how someone’s outlook has changed or how many new friendships have been made. Every contact we make influences someone’s story of life. Most importantly it is our goal to encourage patients in their faith, or to introduce them to a personal relationship with the Lord.
Thank you for makingVictory in the Valley a priority. Our ministry fills an important need for those facing what can be an overwhelming diagnosis at times. We will continue to serve the needs of those walking a cancer journey with continued support like yours.
