THANKFUL THURSDAY


I am off this morning my friends, to the missions trip in New Orleans, where we will be working with a church there and working together in a neighborhood. Pray for us, if you're so compelled, while we're there (Peculiar's family--God knows who we are). Pray that God's light is a blinding force that the people can't help but be drawn to. Pray that we're abased while God is exalted. Pray that His plan and His will be done.
I won't be here to know what Iris' theme will be for TT, so I will just be thankful in general. There is always so much to be grateful for.
  1. I am grateful that God chose my family and I to join Him in His work to witness to and love on others, whether it's in New Orleans or anywhere else on earth.
  2. I am thankful that He has given me the gift of service, giving, and the boldness to tell others about Him.
  3. I am thankful that His Spirit in me has compelled me to use those gifts for His glory and someone else's good, and not for selfish gain or pride.
  4. I am thankful that God has given my children a heart for missions
  5. I am thankful that Iris has given us an outlet or forum on which to express our thanks to a good and gracious God.

I pray that the rest of your week goes well. We will be returning Sunday, so pray for safe travels to LA and back home for us and our team of servants for Christ.

What a WONDERFUL list of Thankful's! I'm praying your mission trip goes well and that the light you bring will chase away the darkness that has encompassed that city for far too long.
