Greetings in the Wonderful Name of our God!
In light of Thanksgiving and in light of the upcoming holiday season, the first thing I feel I need to say to each of you is “Thank you.” Thank you for your faithfulness to our God, thank you for confidence in the Executive Board and its leadership, and thank you for your continued financial support. Truly God has been faithful to the IFCA this past year.
It’s also with this in mind that I want to challenge you with Ecclesiastes 7:8, “Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof . . .” Simply put, our assignment of going to the nations and making disciples has not ended. That means that there are still obstacles to overcome and victories to be won.
This is also where I feel we must give God thanks. As Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 2:14, “Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.” Again, to realize and understand that God is using us, vessels of dust, to manifest his glory is indeed thankworthy.
Finally, from myself and the entire Executive Board, may the gratitude for “everything that pertains to life and Godliness” fill your heart during this holiday season.
May the Lord bless you richly!
In His Service,
Bro. Rick George
IFCA General Overseer
