VBS Offering Sends Fifteen Care Boxes from Cornerstone to U.S. Military Personnel

The offering received during Vacation Bible School helped to send fifteen care boxes to U. S. Military Personnel you gave us the names and addresses for. Thank you for donating items as well. Every box had “goodies” as well as Christian literature, books, and a Bible. Below are some responses we received from them:


Thank you so much for sending me the Bible and books, gifts and snacks. It is very nice of you to do this act of kindness. I have already shared some of the “goodies” with other soldiers. May God bless you in a special way.

Troy Hoskins

Thank you for the care package. It was very nice and surprising. Thank you all for your wonderful prayers and thoughts. Once again, thank you, and please if you would pray for my wife and daughter (Jen and Olivia) for God to make them strong and watch over them while I am gone. Thank you so much.

Brian Crawford

I cannot thank you enough for the kind, most generous care package I received from your church. It’s hard to come up with the proper works to say in this letter, so I’ll pray and hope God can explain how much these gifts you have sent have touched my heart. May God bless all of you.

Brandon Humphreys

Thank you so much for the care package. The contents were greatly appreciated.
