Fellow-workers for the Truth,
Early tomorrow morning, Deb and I will fly to South Carolina to spend Thanksgiving with family. It seems appropriate to communicate our thankfulness to God before leaving for the Thanksgiving holiday.
Thankful for Health: Deb and I are thankful for the health God has given us. We are especially thankful that I have successfully recovered from my January hip replacement surgery. It is our desire to effectively serve the Savior for many years or until our Lord returns. Our good health is an indication that our desire is also His intention.
Thankful for Location: We are also thankful that we have completed the move into the center of Boston, downsizing from 1,900 sq. ft., to 311 sq. ft. It is hard to communicate the awe we feel at being in the very center of a global center rich with potential for Great Commission ministry.
Thankful for Ministry: We are thankful that what we have prayed about, worked towards, and for that which God has prepared us has become a reality—Boston and Beyond a globalized cities initiative.
Thankful for You: As each year passes, Deb and I are increasingly thankful for you our supporters. Our life experience has taught us how very precious it is to have individuals and churches serve with us in the proclamation of the gospel and the building of disciples. Your faithfulness strengthens us and hardens our resolve to fulfill our calling— Ten churches in ten global centers able to minister to ten civilizations.
Thankful to God: Just think, one year and three major transitions: hip replacement surgery, Boston and Beyond vetted, and major downsizing and a move to city center. God has lead us and protected us each day, and He has positioned us for things exceedingly, abundantly beyond all that we have asked, or dreamed.
We are indeed thankful, Bill and Deb
