I have been holding back removing my fall decorations and putting up the Christmas ones, though usually, that is the first thing I want to do when the Thanksgiving meal is over. Instead, I have wanted to take the time to sit in gratitude for all that the Lord has done this year, including the mighty works of healing for some of my loved ones, versus rushing into the bustle of the holiday season. I have also been reflecting on the faithful partners of Ministry Care through these years, especially the challenges that Covid brought for all.
As you know, it is that time of the year again. It is time for Giving Tuesday. This is an opportunity to give back. Would you prayerfully consider giving to Ministry Care? Your contribution will make a difference, no matter what the gift is. And if you cannot give monetarily, would you consider partnering with us in prayer? Prayer has made a vital difference this year. Let me know if you would like to receive updates on how you can pray for Ministry Care.
Ministry Care exists to offer support to grow and sustain thriving ministries, and we often do this through partnerships and relationships with other organizations like Global Outreach and the American Bible Society. At the heart of Ministry Care is equipping, empowering, and training nationals (natives of that country) while offering care, encouragement, and help to missionaries.
I truly could not do this important work without your generosity and kindness, encouragement, prayers, and love. You have held me up many times this year in the same way we have served to hold up others. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
Blessings to you and with love,
