We've been receiving reports over the territory and the country that Australians have again stepped up to support their neighbours by giving to the Red Shield Appeal. Thank you, Australia.
The numbers are not all in and the appeal actually continues yet for a bit, but with today being the official door knock day, I must express the gratitude of TSA. My thanks goes too to the many who are working so hard to make it all work. It requires the whole community.
In this, while we celebrate the support, we do not celebrate the increasing need for Salvo help within the communities.
2 Corinthians 9:13 (MSG)
13 This relief offering is a prod to live at your very best, showing your gratitude to God by being openly obedient to the plain meaning of the Message of Christ. You show your gratitude through your generous offerings to your needy brothers and sisters, and really toward everyone.
