Well we just finished our thanksgiving service and I praise God for all that He has done in our church and in our lives.Â I really wanted to just take this time to tell each of you that attend Vision how muchÂ I love you and how thankful I am to God for the privilege that HeÂ has given me.Â I watchedÂ you tonight.Â I watched the way you worked.Â I saw you setting up tables and chairs.Â I saw you preparing the food.Â I saw you being so friendly and kind to all the visitors and all that I could think was what a blessing to see such a serving people.
God blessed us with many visitors.Â I watched how you welcomed them.Â I stood there amazed but oh so proud of you for your love, your sweet spirit, your serving attitude and the welcome that you gave them.Â
I am so privileged to be allowed by you and by God to work with the finest people that I have ever known.Â I just wanted to say thank you.
I also want to thank God for how He has blessed us.Â We had our big Celebration Sunday just 8 months ago.Â Last December we began praying and planning with less than 20 people and to see how God has blessed since then is just amazing.Â Thank God for His rich blessings. Thank God for people like you that are willing to serve, to love, to give, and to honor Him.
Forgive me for just babbling on but one thing you can know.Â As your pastor, I love you and I am very proud of you!
