Happy Thanksgiving!

We are so thankful for your partnership in the Gospel

Chances are you are coming to the table feeling really tired in the midst of being thankful. You feel the weight of the responsibility of leading God’s people day in and day out. You feel their hurts, you celebrate their successes, you yearn for them to experience God on deeper and deeper levels.

And if you are to be honest, you yearn to experience Him on deeper and deeper levels, too. It is our prayer that you have a significant encounter with Christ this Thanksgiving. May you hear our loving Lord whisper His great encouragement in your ear, prodding you to rest and then to carry on with His powerful redemptive mission. You are not alone. Our Jesus said it so Himself.

You also have a group of friends and fans cheering you on at the Mid-Atlantic Baptist Network. “Ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers” (Ephesians 1:15-16).

We do pray for you. And we are incredibly thankful for you as a person and as God’s chosen instrument to lead in this broken world. May this special holiday remind you of the great rewards awaiting you.

Happy Thanksgiving from your friends at the Mid-Atlantic Baptist Network.
