An Annual Day of Great Thanksgiving Prayer
Each year, as the fall season approaches I begin to get excited. I can
count on regaining the hour of sleep lost with daylight savings time. I can
count on decreasing temperatures to a more pleasant tropical
environment, and most of all I can count on the Old Savannah City
Mission bringing the community together for the Annual Day of Great
Thanksgiving., and giving thanks to God for all he has blessed me with
during the year.
I was recently revisited an account of a 90-year-old man and the joy he
had in “remembering”. He said, rather than reviewing disappointments,
my thoughts are filled with thankfulness and praise to God. We
sometimes take for granted those mercies that include good health, a
godly and caring wife, the joy of seeing children who have “not fell” far
from the tree, the joy of having parents who are alive although in poor
health, and the opportunities that we have to serve God. We must
consider the things that God has blessed us with as gifts—none
deserved, but all gratefully received.
For the past seventeen years, Old Savannah City Mission has received
gifts of prayers, volunteers, donations, and financial support from those in
our community who love the Lord, and believe in the core mission of
presenting the Gospel (365 days a year), feeding the hungry, sheltering
the homeless, rehabilitating the addict, and restoring the ex-offender.
This year, as we honor God, please join your neighbors at Old
Savannah City Mission on Saturday, November 22, 2014 as we give
thanks to God for his mercies at our 17th Annual Day of Great
Thanksgiving. You are invited to eat at God’s house, share a meal, tour
the facility, and minister to others who know and those who may not know
Your financial support is welcomed and needed. I am encouraging
you to send a contribution today to support the 17th Annual Day of Great
Thanksgiving. Your contribution will continue to “help the Mission help
others”. Contributions may be mailed to OSCM, P O Box 16839,
Savannah Georgia, 31416-3539 or made on the web at www.oscm.org.
Your prayers and support are gratefully received, may God bless you!

including praise and worship music, clinical service information, and a
