First, I thank my God through Jesus Christ for all of you, because your faith is proclaimed throughout the world.
Scripture delivers for me the perfect words for every purpose. In this instance, my thanks go to God and Apostle Paul! In this season of Thanksgiving, I thank you for the same reasons Paul was thanking followers of Jesus. You embrace our work with refugees and the poorest of the poor in the Rio Grande Valley with the same passion that Paul embraced his ministry.
I embrace you because of your understanding that when God creates and loves, God knows no borders. We are all created by God, and my gratitude is great for your loving support through prayer and giftgiving for those in our country and beyond. I thank my God that “your faith is proclaimed throughout the world” through your good works and prayers and gifts to us!
I will pray a special prayer of thanksgiving for you in the season, and pledge to continue doing all I can to live out God’s will for us here. May your bounty be great, and may your heart be filled with gratitude.
Thanksgiving blessings from your brother in Christ,
