On November 2, 2019, God’s Appalachian Partnership’s Board of Directors held our second annual Thanksgiving Meal for our GAP families. Our board and friends prepared a feast of turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, dressing, green beans, sweet potato casserole, rolls, cake, and pumpkin pie! However, the best part of the day was the sweet fellowship we were able to have with our precious families. It was wonderful to sit around and talk with each family and find out what they are thankful for this year. Too often at Distribution it is so crowded and busy that it is hard to have a one-on-one conversation. This ministry event allows us to serve our families and sit around and just talk, building relationships with the whole family. It was great to meet family members that we have heard so much about and prayed for throughout the year.
Our staff cannot express in words how much we enjoyed this year’s Thanksgiving Meal. We are thankful for our Board of Directors and all those who helped make this year’s event a success. A special thanks to Carol Cooley Jefferies who took a family photo of each of our families and then printed them to give as a gift during our first distributions of the new year.
