Does packing make a difference?
In case you have wondered whether you make a difference helping to send a little “touch of home” to our military people, you will all enjoy reading this email which came from one of our guys. Keep up the good work!
NOTE FROM A SOLDIER:
This is John Miller. You guys at A Touch of Home are absolute Angels. The thought you all put in the packages that you send mean a lot to me. I’ve been meaning to write you for awhile but times have been busy. I first started receiving packages about 2 years ago while I was in Afghanistan. Let’s just say I looked forward to that little touch of home that you guys provided more than once a month. Sometimes I broke down and cried during that year in Afghanistan when I would read everyone's letters that came in those packages, they were just so meaningful and it was absolutely wonderful to know that all of you were, and still, are thinking of me while I was deployed (I’m Japan now). Though I may not know all of you that are a part of this wonderful group it truly means a TON to me that you are all thinking about me daily and including me in your prayers. Not a lot of people still support the military but it is good to know that you guys do all you can for the service members that you and others know. I’m sure it means as much to them as it does to me. Keep up the wonderful work.
2013 marked 10 years of sending packages to our troops! We also held the annual A Touch of Home Fund Raising BBW at the new (old) Crossroads Church Cottage Grove campus!
