The Christian Mission Center in Enterprise held its annual Thanksgiving dinner. Several dozen area residents enjoyed turkey with all the trimmings.
The Christian Mission is one of just a few such facilities in the wiregrass help those who have little or nothing at all. Those who came had a wide selection of food to choose from ham, turkey, and all kinds of vegetables.
Several Ft. Rucker soldiers and many others volunteered their Thanksgiving Day to help out.
One volunteer was Cindy Berry. The New Orleans native lost her home to Hurricane Katrina last year. Thursday, she was a resident at the Christian Mission's women's shelter.
"I am in the women's center here, and the love I’ve received from the people in enterprise has been heart felt, and is really overwhelming," said Berry.
Since forming the Christian Mission in 1983, Reverend John Belcher for the 24th straight year gave the blessing. Reverend Belcher says he was following God's will when he helped put the mission together.
The center has provided food and shelter for thousands of people over the years.
It also provides thousands of meals each year to the elderly and homebound in Geneva and Coffee Counties.
The Christian Mission runs entirely on private donations. It does not receive any government funding.
