Living Water doing Bags of Blessings this Thanksgiving

October 8, 2012

With Thanksgiving a little over a month away, Living Water Ministries is seeking to provide its clients with a great
Thanksgiving meal through a Bag of Blessing.
Living Water has adjusted the contents of the bag to make it as affordable as ever, and still give its clients a
wonderful meal for Thanksgiving. Bags of Blessings need to be returned to Living Water by Nov. 8 so it will have time to
get organized. Messages can also put in the bags if people so choose.
Churches, organizations, Sunday Schools, schools, and the public are asked to be a part of this project.
