As Pastor Fausto, his family and congregation journey through this trial, our family has been inspired and touched by their amazing faith and trust in God. They’ve prayed and fasted asking God to do His will…Isn’t it astonishing how God works? We thought we would encourage Pastor Fausto and his family but instead they’ve been an inspiration for us.
… It seemed to me they’re simply existing. They look pretty but I know they could do much more if they discover the value they have before God’s eyes. I sense God leading me to sow His Word in their lives, to care for them and nurtured their lives with love and compassion.
If we remember deeply and truly, we will know whom to thank.—Frederick Buechner. As you gather around the table with friends and family to celebrate Thanksgiving, may you be blessed by recalling all that Jesus Christ has done in your life. May the memories of God’s goodness and steadfast love energize you to live faithfully as a child of God. May you faithfully share with the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, His power, and the wonders He has done (Psalms 78:4).
“God isn’t looking for individuals of great faith, but for individuals ready to follow him.” – Hudson Taylor
“In ordinary life, we hardly realize that we receive a great deal more than we give, and that is only with gratitude that life becomes rich.” – Dietrich Bonhoeffer
