Yesterday was Thanksgiving in the US. As Linda and I are dual citizens, we often celebrate both Thanksgiving holidays. You can’t be too thankful. We also have much for which to thank our Lord.
We are grateful to God for the privilege of knowing Him and serving Him through Heritage College and Seminary. We’re thankful for many opportunities to help equip men and women for ministry. I’m grateful for God’s enabling grace in recent preaching opportunities: I spoke at a Promise Keepers National Conference last Saturday and also in the Heritage chapel this past Tuesday.
I’m also thankful for friends like you who follow our blog and pray for us. Here are some requests for the coming days.
Today (Friday), Linda and a group of Heritage students lead an ESL (English as a Second Language) class in the local library. This has been an open door for our students to serve new Canadians with God’s love and light. Please pray that the Lord will continue to keep this door of opportunity open!
Tonight (Friday) we have our all-school Christmas banquet. Chuck Schoenmaker and his Student Services Team give leadership to this wonderful event in the life the school. Please pray for a rich time of fellowship and worship for our students, faculty and staff.
Next Wednesnday (November 28), we have our quarterly Board meeting at Heritage. Would you join me in thanking the Lord for the men and women who sacrificially serve on our Board. Pray that God would give our Board members wisdom as they give oversight to the school’s ministry.
While Thanksgiving (Canadian and US) is offically over. May our thanksgiving to God continue to overflow!
