Dear beloved friends and brothers in Christ,
" Grace to you and peace from God our father and the Lord Jesus Christ. I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer with joy,because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. And I am shore of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ." Philippians 1: 2 - 7 ESV version
I know that there are so many things in our lives going on and some times is so hard to stop the time and reflect. In each day we do some, we go some where, we visit, or work, or participate for some and the days are flying...
All our four churches study in this time the book of Philippians and we have a wonderful time reading and studying this book.
In all this days, months and in fact in all this whole year God make so many miracles in our lives and in our ministry area.
He gave to us many blessings through your generosity, love and sacrifice.
For all that it's time to take a break in our lives and to say: THANK YOU !
We want to say Thank God for you all.
Is a great honor for me, for my family and for all our ministry teams to partner with you for His Kingdom.
I know it's been a while since the last time we told you that We Love You and We Appreciate your effort, generosity and support and for that I'm truly sorry .
But from the bottom of our hearth we wish you a Happy Thanksgiving Day !
Emmanuel Ministry Romania Foundation, Emanuel Church of Alunis, Bethleem Church of Vale, Faith Church in Hasdate, Emanuel Church in Gherla (Grace church become Emanuel, in fact all of our churches will be called Emanuel in future), the group of believers from Fizes and house church from Corneni and hundred of children's, widows, needed peoples, peoples in prison and many others who have been blessed by you and by your generosity joined together in prayer and Thanks God for you.
Maybe for some of you the Thanksgiving Day is not a easy holiday in this year, maybe some of you, like us, are wonder how we can be thankful to God when we do not have just good news? How to be thankful on Thanksgiving day when your dreams are gone, your daughter suffers, your job, parents, friends, health, income, family, passes through suffering??
I'm reading with my family in these difficult moments for us in the Bible in :
1Thessalonians 5:18 " give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you "
So, my God give you all power to give thanks "in all " and not " for all ", because this is hard and impossible. But He will help you, no matter how hard and what circumstances will come, to Thank Him in all.
Best wishes to all of you.
Happy Thanksgiving Day !
My God continue to bless you and your family richly !
With love, appreciation and consideration in Christ
