Because of who He is...

"This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of the Lord’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God. Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, others will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else." - 2 Corinthians 9:12-13

This is always a great time of year for me as a pastor.  I absolutely love to see what churches can do together for the sake of God's kingdom. Each year Baptist churches focus on international missions in December, coming together for the sake of expanding the gospel; even unto the ends of the earth.  Many churches have speakers visit, bringing the message of hope back to the very churches that help support missions.  

I find it such a blessing that the missionaries that speak to the "home churches" are actually bringing just as much joy to these supporting churches as they are to the churches they serve in the missionary field; at least, I pray that this is the case...I know that it is for me.  As I listened to the missionaries we had visit this year, I heard that God was still at work, that God was still needed both here and across this world, that God was still making a difference.  That is exciting!

As this season of focus has come to a close, it has blessed my heart to know that FBC Hooks has surpasssed the goal set for Lottie Moon Christmas Offering.  I want to thank you on behalf of our missionaries that are on the field, serving our Lord daily.  Truly, without your support, they would not be able to be there.  Thank you for being a church that supports missionary work here at home AND across the world, so that EVERYONE is afforded the opportnity to hear the good news.  Thank you for giving simply "because of who He is!"

In Christ,

Bro. Grant
