Gratitude gushing from 'Across the Pond'

**A SPECIAL MESSAGE OF THANKS** from British Pastor mission Partner

So this message might be a bit all over the place, cause I feel like I have got lots that I want to say ... 

I have to start by saying 'thank you' again - we had a wonderful time, it was an amazing experience, and Liz and I felt so blessed by the kindness and the generosity and the love that was shown to us by so many people! But I particularly want to say thank you for inviting us, and for making it all happen. I know that there must have been countless messages and phone calls and all kinds of other stuff going on to organize our trip, as well as the 'normal' day-to-day stuff that wouldn't have stopped in the couple of months between the invitation and our visit. And then to everyone who gave up so much of their time to show us around and take us places and introduce us to people, it was so good of you! 

But most of all I want to say, thank you for welcoming us into your Family. We genuinely feel like your friendship is a gift, a blessing from God to us, and feel like there is a genuine connection with you all. I want you to know that you are regularly in my prayers, and so —

  • I pray for you as you strive to be the best that you can be…

  • I pray for you as you seek to deepen your relationship with Jesus and encourage others to do the same…

  • I pray for you as you seek to follow Him wherever He leads and call others to go with you…

  • I pray for you as you manage life and a heavy workload…

  • I pray for you as you carry expectations that you and others put upon you…

  • And I pray most of all that you remember every day that He is with you, and that you don't have to do any of this on your own…

 Much love to you all.
