Tim Guerino: Giving thanks for all the help

December 27, 2013 

Here is a sample of one of the many thank-you messages we receive on a daily basis:

“Dear Pastor Tim,

My family and I received help from the Turlock Gospel Mission 3 months ago. It has taken us some time to normalize, we are still struggling. Today we were in need of help and once again we were received with love and care. I can not thank you and your staff enough for what they did and are doing for the community. Lord Bless you and thank you.”

I could not have said it better.

On behalf of the Turlock Gospel Mission, we want to thank the community for its daily financial support, prayers and donations. Partnering with us to provide Turlock’s homeless and hurting people find hope and restoration in Christ! In 2013 we saw many individuals go from hopelessness to hope and get off the streets.

We are totally dependent on your financial gifts and prayers. We receive no government funding, thus doing more with less while providing love, hope and a future to those in need (Jeremiah 29:11).
