Saying ‘Thank you’ never seems to convey enough appreciation or gratitude. Those same words, all too often, are found too near phrases like ‘…and what can I get you to drink with that?’ or are received in exchange for your hard-earned money spent on things like a replacement refrigerator or new tires.
When we say ‘Thank you’, it’s as much for your unfailing prayers as it is for your financial support. It’s still your hard-earned-money, but here it takes the form of a digital binocular microscope for our science classes, or a cart to hold the projector, or the projector itself, or crayons, paper, pencils, sharpeners, books, medicine, food, clothing, prenatal vitamins, a photocopier and the list goes on and on.
When Paul says
I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
I know how he felt. I really do. Your giving makes stuff happen here, whether you support our family or sponsor a Sonlight student. Thank you for expressing your faith through prayer and giving.
Being able to help people here in Haiti in small ways or big ways is a blessing. We feel blessed to be here doing it. We’re blessed that you make it possible.
With love and confidence.
