Thank You to God for a Wonderful Church
Church, I want you to know how proud I am of you all. You have been faithful in so many ways, and God is blessing. Below are three thanksgiving concerns:
Thanks from Vickie P.
In a card received this week, Vickie expressed her thanksgiving for the love shown during the benefit (which raised over $5,200). She wrote,
I have always felt loved by everyone at this church, but I’m not sure I can ever express in words how my heart overflowed and the blessing God showed me with this expression of love.
She continued by sharing her appreciation for all the prayers and encouragement expressed to her and Randy as they continue this journey.
Thanks from Scott and Anita Hill
Scott and Anita wrote, thanking our church for a wonderful financial gift. They wrote,
We are humbled. We got the gas tank filled up for winter. It should take us to February. God is good and always right on time.
(Everyone out that way has a big gas tank for their heat in the winter. The tank cost a good bit to fill.)
They continue the letter, saying that Scott’s broken leg is healing, sharing that the church is growing, telling about their upcoming Church Fall Festival (on Oct 31), and telling about several ministries in which they are involved. Please keep praying for them as the Lord’s work in Iowa.
Thanks for a wonderful Trunk-or-Treat
Again, God gets all the glory. He parted the storms and held back the rain. (Thunderstorms moved past us 4 miles to the south.) He caused a wonderful showing of our community. And He led our church to respond in such a terrifically manner.
So, I thank God for you all. Thank you to the Planning Team; this was the best fall event we have had. Thank you to the church for donating candy. Thank you to the men and women who helped set-up and prepared things in advance from making cards to acquiring supplies and from setting up equipment to cooking hotdogs and popcorn.
Note: We had 386 registered people plus all the volunteers attend our Trunk-or-Treat this year. Thank you, Lord!
How will we call that a marriage where the husband and wife are still two persons, maintaining individuality as if it were a conscientious condition of the contract? That is utterly foreign to the divine idea of marriage. In a true marriage, the husband and wife become one. Therefore their joys and their cares, their hopes and their labors, their sorrows and their pleasures, rise and blend together in one stream.
– Charles Spurgeon
