I just wanted to flash a quick message to you all and commend you for your hard work! I know many of you prayed hard, worked hard and even stretched yourselves beyond your limits for the work of Jesus. And for that I applaud you but more importantly, I know Jesus is smiling down on you all for your grand work.
It is moments like these that we cherish, remember and recall to remind us how God is wonderfully and intimately involved in our lives. He is in the BIG things and the little things and in everything in between. I know that I have had the opportunity to see Christ in you and it fills me with great hope for the future! There is greatness in all of you!
As I take time to sit, pause and reflect I find myself thanking God for all of your lives an the impact you have had on me. I don't know what kind of year it has been for you. It may have been a great one or a tough one but what matters is that we are all in it together, never alone and never without hope.
I look forward to working with you all next year in taking on a greater vision, stirring new passion and realizing new potential in all of us. But until than, I'd like to extend a very Merry Christmas to you all and a Happy New Year. May God richly bless you as you spend time with your families, friends and enjoy another season of God's grace and blessings in your lives.
