“Dear Smoke Rise Baptist, thank you for your kind words and your boxes of goodies. It means so much to get packages from home while deployed . . . to know that people care about us, and are thinking of us while we are overseas. A special thanks to Smoke Rise Baptist Church . . . and all others that helped bring us joy through your care packages.”
This is an excerpt of a letter from Matthew Voke, grandson of SRBC member, Carolyn Voke.
The main objective of the Military Away program is to hold these military men and women up in prayer while they serve in dangerous places. Another objective is to send care packages. While the contents of the boxes are usually donated, it costs $40 to mail one box. If you can contribute to this program, please make checks payable to SRBC, write Military Away in the Memo Line, and drop your donation in the offering plate or mail it to the church to Debbie Lloyd’s attention. Military Away is not funded through the budget and your donation should be above your regular budget giving. For more information, please contact Margaret-Anne Prophitt at 770.979.8472.
Thanks for your continued support!
Gary and Margaret-Anne Prophitt
