Perhaps you’ve forgotten, but, last Spring, Grace Church helped to replace the roof of a good friend of our missions workers in the Central African Republic. The full story is HERE.
We just received a note from him this week. I hope it inspires you to be grateful and to be generous during this season of thanksgiving!
“I continually give thanks to our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ for his unchanging love which he showed on the cross for us. His love justifies us and our belief in Him has made us His children and a part of the Christian family. You have shown that it is true that because of this, when one of the members of the “family” suffers, the whole family suffers. So, my beloved family in Christ, your kindness has made a real mark on my heart and I’ve asked God to bless you with His grace just like He says in Malachi 3:10-11 so that He will open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you won’t have a place to store it all and will be able to keep on helping others as you have done to me.
I [am] well and truly received all that you sent but ask your continued prayers for others and for the rest of the work needed on my house as well.
We also send you the thanks of our four children who love you in Christ.
We “give” you the verse Philippians 4:6 Don’t worry about anything! God is great.
BENAYANG Julien in Bangui”
Please take a moment to pray for Julien and his family as well as all the others who are suffering in this difficult time in CAR history.
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
