Words of Appreciation to our Congregation
for our support of Birthday Cake ministry
Dear Friends of the Poor,
Thank you for your great faithfulness over the years in providing sheet
cakes for the homeless and poor with whom our ministry works.
I believe it was dear Lola Morphis who first introduced the idea to your
congregation to provide birthday cakes to help celebrate birthdays each
month at the shelter we had on Stockton Boulevard.
Over the years thousands of hurting souls have been cheered because of
these lovely cakes. I’ve seen not just children, but adults, let out a little cheer
of joy at seeing the cakes coming and saying things like “Oh, they’ve got the
cakes!” Yes, you have a reputation for making great cakes.
We’ve also enjoyed meeting Karlene who has lovingly
brought these cakes to us over the years. We commend
her for her kindness and helpfulness. We appreciate all
your church family members who participate in this
program. You’ve made sad hearts glad and fed them too!
For those in need,
Pastor Deanna Jones
