#1 – Taiwan Family
I wish you could have been there with me!
Last month I sat in a huge room in Dan-Shui Taiwan, filled with Taiwanese and foreign missionaries from all over the globe. It was my JOY to celebrate 20 years of The Rock Cafe ministry in Danshui Taiwan (a free coffee-bar ministry which YWAM runs). We listened to testimonies of many local Taiwanese who met Jesus through the Rock Cafe. Men, women, teens, young and old, went from lives of hopelessness to lives filled with purpose and joy. Tears of gratitude rolled – on all of our faces – as our Taiwanese brothers and sisters recalled the transformation in their lives, expressing such gratitude to Jesus and to the missionaries who served to pave the way for them to meet Jesus!
God’s family conitunues to grow – and I know He loves it when we celebrate that!
#2 – Mission Partners | You are family to us
This Thanksgiving, we’re celebrating God’s family growing through our partnership with you! Together we see lives transformed, at home and abroad.
“Go through his open gates with great thanksgiving; enter his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and bless his name. For the Lord is always good. He is always loving and kind, and his faithfulness goes on and on to each succeeding generation.”
– Psalm 100
If you live anywhere in the USA, tomorrow you will likely be in a home with friends and family to celebrate a unique day on our calendar: Thanksgiving. I am so grateful for this holiday – a time to pause and reflect on the goodness of God in our lives. As we consider God’s goodness and steadfast love to our families, communities, our nation, and the nations of the earth, may you overflow with thanksgiving tomorrow, and always!
We are thankful for YOU!
