Imagine sitting on splintered, wooden benches, or a dirt floor so you can hear teaching about Jesus Christ. Most of us do not have to endure difficult conditions to learn about our Lord, but that is a daily reality for believers around the world.
You Responded Quickly!
Less than one week ago, you were given an opportunity to make worship services a little more comfortable for a group of believers in the Philippines. I am happy to announce that your donations have been received and put into service this Sunday morning! As you prepare to worship this morning, I want you to also give thanks to God that His grace was displayed in you this week.
2 Corinthians 9:12 (NASB95)
12 For the ministry of this service is not only fully supplying the needs of the saints, but is also overflowing through many thanksgivings to God.
Our Lord is Worthy!
In supplying for needs of other saints around the world, you not only met the need, but you encouraged other believers. They saw that you love the Lord so much that you were willing to stop what you were doing and help them in His name.
As you can see from the pictures below, there are still many needs that you can meet around the world. But today, give thanks that others are encouraged by your testimony of generosity to our Lord and His people. Give thanks that God would demonstrate His kindness and grace to His people. Give thanks that our Lord chose to do that through YOU.
