The third Thursday of November is marked as Thanksgiving on the American calendar. What are you thankful for? A couple of verses from Paul’s letter to the Ephesians are a tremendous encouragement to us:
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ”
“And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins”
Then Titus 2:13 “looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ“
We are thankful for HOPE! The advertising slogan “Got Milk?” has been around awhile and I thought, why not “Got Hope?” With the American Thanksgiving holiday just around the corner, what better thing to be thankful for than the HOPE that we have in Christ? May God encourage your heart with the message of HOPE in this seemingly hopeless world.
Please pray for us as we travel for the holiday. We are looking forward to being with Robert in Oklahoma and some of Laura’s family in Texas. We will be gone for about 10 days.
It is exciting to think of the Higaunon getting more of God’s Word in their language. Thank you for praying for Lance as he translates Old Testament books. He has finished 2 Samuel and is working on a couple of other smaller books.
Finally, we are thankful for YOU for your part in this ministry.
Secure in Christ’s love,
Lance & Laura
