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. - Philippians 1:3-6

This Thanksgiving I want to emphasize just how thankful I am for each one of you who make up the Bridges family, stretched out all over the world. I do thank God for every one of you and your partnership in the Gospel. Bridges people have big hearts, sincere hearts, hearts that beat with the heart of God and because of this, thanksgiving is a natural overflow of any thought of you. 

The past two years through Covid and everything else have been difficult and trying times for all of us and yet through it all, you have continued to be shining lights with the love of Christ. Just being with you brings joy and encouragement. Just knowing you brings a smile. 

We have so much to be thankful for as God continues to work in and around us. He has always provided and shown grace to us in all we do and are as a church family. Words are not enough to say how much I appreciate each one of you. 

May God truly bless you this Thanksgiving and show you His favor. May His presence fill everything you do. May His love be evident in all your celebrations as you gather together with others or as you simply have time alone with Him. 

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Because of you and so many other reasons, I am able to celebrate Thanksgiving every day. 

God bless.
