Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift. (2 Corinthians 9:16)
Dear Prayer Partner’s, “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.”(Philippians 4:6) Thanksgiving is here and it is the perfect time for me to express my thankfulness to you for your faithful prayer and financial support of my work here in Liberia.
“In everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” (1 Thessalonians 5:18) I am thankful for the progression of our Missionary Physician Assistants class soon to complete the seventh of nine trimesters. They will next go on hospital affiliations throughout Liberia to complete the program. Our hearts have been especially blessed recently by the student devotionals that begin our days.
“And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful.” (Colossians 3:15) I am thankful for the privilege of being involved with our various church plants. We are seeing spiritual growth in the congregations and challenging messages in both Sunday school and church services.
“O give thanks unto the LORD; call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people.” Psalms 105:1 This Saturday we will be having a workshop with individuals from the church plants who have shown leadership potential. The come to Gbarnga from their various villages and are taught in several disciplines from Scripture.
And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, [do] all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.” Colossians 3:17 The African Fundamental Baptist Mission Health Center is serving the community well especially since the upgrade to a “Health Center.” We are thankful for our solar power giving us consistent night time lights. With the expanded hours and admissions we are getting more emergency and sicker patients.
I am thankful to God for calling me to serve Him here Liberia and surrounding me with so many wonderful people and for “His indescribable gift.’
