Thanksgiving 2012

Philippians 1:3-8

I thank my God upon every remembrance of you,... for your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now,... because I have you in my heart, inasmuch as... you all are partakers with me of grace. For God is my witness, how greatly I long for you all with the affection of Jesus Christ.
These verses just express perfectly what we feel today.

Our gratitude this year is beyond expression for all that the Lord has done and is doing in our lives and hearts, but especially and specifically for our GCC church family. The love and support we have experienced for the last seven years at GCC is amazing. We are so thankful to the Lord for the ministry of brother David. We are grateful to the Lord for the faithfulness of the saints in gathering together and "so much the more as we see the day approaching"

We are grateful for the children and young people at GCC.  Especially their love for the Lord Jesus Christ.  We may be a bit bias, but we think you are the most beautiful, funniest, smartest kids ever.  Our earnest prayer and hearts desire is that you would continue to grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. And that you might be filled with ALL the fullness of Christ.

We are also thankful to the Lord for all those who have supported us in love and prayers as we endeavor to obey the calling of the Lord on our lives to move to Paraguay for full time gospel ministry.

May we be grateful every day but today we are especially reminded do express our gratitude to our loving Heavenly Father and to the many wonderful people that he brings into our lives.
