Thank you for your willingness to help out those in need! Currently, CWAA is up to over $2200 raised for the 2013 CWAA Terry Fox Run that took place this past Friday. Praise God for blessing the efforts to support cancer research in this way. Today I also had the privilege of taking something close to 270 pounds of food to the Calgary Food Bank, most of which was donated on our September Food Bank Friday! So thank you! It is great to be part of a school family that is willing to help those in need. Thank you for collecting Terry Fox donations. Thank you for running or helping with the Terry Fox Run this past Friday. Thank you for giving generously for Food Bank Friday. Thank you for being willing to serve God as a part of the CWAA school family!
“Then these righteous ones will reply, ‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry and feed you? Or thirsty and give you something to drink? Or a stranger and show you hospitality? Or naked and give you clothing? When did we ever see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will say, ‘I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!’” (Matthew 25:37–40 NLT).
