We Are Thankful For ...
It is that time of year to send our “Thankful” letter. The problem is where to begin. God has been so good over the past year to us personally and to the ministries of Christian World Outreach (CWO).
These days we are thankful that we have remained healthy, along with our children and their families.
We are thankful for Laura’s job at Hobby Lobby. She enjoys the work atmosphere there including hearing the Christian music that plays in the store. We are also thankful for the ministry opportunity that has been given to her by working there. She has had the opportunity to minister to some of her younger co-workers who are struggling with life. We recently had some of them over for an evening to play games and we look forward to seeing how God uses this time.
We are thankful for our new church, Central Bible Church, and the opportunities it has provide us to minister in our community. We have been able to serve alongside the core team that started this church plant and it has given Greg the opportunity to preach a few times.
We are thankful that God has graciously kept the CWO leadership and staff in Burkina Faso, Haiti, South Africa, Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe healthy and safe. These people serve in some difficult places and have dealt with political instability, harsh COVID restrictions, natural disasters, threats of persecution and many other things. We are so thankful that God has protected them.
We are thankful for the CWO leaders who love the Lord and who continue to navigate through all the threats to ministry. Alassane & Dina serving Burkina Faso, Joel & Marie serving Haiti, Thembi and Jeanette serving South Africa and the US, Rajeeve serving Sri Lanka and Onias & Winnie serving Zimbabwe have all done a great job of leading the staff and keeping ministries going.
