Fred and I (and our families) want to thank you for the love, support, and encouragement that you’ve shown to us all year, but specifically, at the “Pastor Appreciation Luncheon” last month! Your notes, cards, and hugs were so kind, and we are thankful for you, Sequoyah!
We echo Paul’s words to the people he loved at Philippi: “Every time I think of you, I give thanks to my God. Whenever I pray, I make my requests for all of you with joy, for you have been my partners in spreading the Good News about Christ from the time you first heard it until now. And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns . . . God knows how much I love you and long for you with the tender compassion of Christ Jesus. I pray that your love will overflow more and more, and that you will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding. For I want you to understand what really matters, so that you may live pure and blameless lives until the day of Christ’s return. May you always be filled with the fruit of your salvation—the righteous character produced in your life by Jesus Christ—for this will bring much glory and praise to God.”
Much love and thanks,
Pastor Jamie and Brother Fred
