Eager to start

Dear sir:
We are delighted and thankful to God for the opportunity He has afforded us to minister in both the practical and spiritual work of The Salvation Army in Fort Frances.
In the short number of days since we have arrived at Fort Frances, we have been so very impressed with reports of how well the community has supported, and indeed participated, from the heart in past efforts and ministry of The Salvation Army.
We are eager to make new friendships and establish an even stronger and broader base of ministry to the citizens of Rainy River District. We look forward to your continued support of our work here in Fort Frances, and ask particularly that you keep us in your prayers as we seek new opportunities to minister in the name of Christ our Lord.
May we also take this opportunity to say that resources at the food bank are extremely low.
At this time of extreme change and adjustment for us in our new appointment, we call upon the assistance of all those in this area who would be willing to take extra measures to ensure a replenishing of foodstuffs to meet the ongoing demands of needy folks in this area.
May god bless you all!
Signed,
Eric and Sylvia Alcock
