Tellico Plains Story
This story came from the December 2019 Mobile Pantry:
Compassion Ministries received this letter from a Monroe County Juvenile Court caseworker. “I sent one of ‘my’
families to your event. They certainly needed it. They contacted me with tears in their voice of pure
gratitude. They could hardly believe what they received and that they were given a shopping cart full. I
am passing their joy along to you with my thanks as well.” Signed, Judith Dwyer.
This story came from the July 2016 Mobile Pantry:
Thank you for your compassion and caring to Tellico Plains with your Food Bank Ministries that is so greatly needed. We are thankful for you Ministries.
Your workers were awesome to us new workers. All the younger people were very well mannered and respectful to our elderly and needy families. And for everyone to stop what they were doing and prayed for the gentlemen who was going through a problem was amazing.
Robin thank you for allowing me to take food baskets to the disabled and elderly who couldn't handle the heat. They were so grateful.
God's blessing to you and your ministries throughout your Mission.
Diana L. Murphy, Pres Tellico Community Food Pantry.
This story came from a local Tellico volunteer from May 2015:
My name is Sherri Raby, I was a volunteer last Saturday in Tellico. I would just like to say, how much we, appreciate your ministry. The response was overwhelming!
I work in the office at Rural Vale School and several of our families came. I'm also a member of the city council in Tellico. The people of this area are near and dear to my heart. It was such a blessing to see all the volunteers that came out to support this cause.
One testimony I heard made the whole day worth it. An elderly man was inline to sign the sheet and get his buggy. I started talking with him and he was thanking me for everything. I told him it was blessing to me and that I thanked him for being there. He said," I didn't know what I was going to do for food this month, because I had to use all my social security check to fix my car." He was praising the Lord even in his trails. This humbled me so much.
Once again thank you for what you and your group do for the citizens of East TN. When you come to our area again, I hope to be blessed to volunteer.
