November 27 -- For the twentieth consecutive year God's Storehouse and the Jesus Inn in Vidalia prepared for their annual community Thanksgiving dinner. The event took place on Wednesday, November 27th and they fed nearly 1,600 people from the community.  Pastor Tina Houser of God's Storehouse and the Jesus Inn says, "I am doing this for the needy and the people that don't have food. I am trying to provide a home cooked meal for them."  Although God's Storehouse and the Jesus Inn is trying to meet the need for the community, Houser says, "the need is getting greater, not smaller, and it just breaks my heart over the people that are hungry." 

Not only was there a great need this year, the need continues after Thanksgiving. According to Pastor Houser, "the need is still here after Thanksgiving, that is why we have the shelter and food/clothing ministry. We need canned goods and money to support the facility so we can provide food and housing for the homeless."  For those interested in helping combat the problem of homelessness in our community, they can reach Pastor Houser at 538-1730.
