We Give Thanks!

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good!

His faithful love endures forever.

Psalm 118:1

The psalmist calls out to different groups in the audience that day: Let the Israelites repeat it; okay, now Aaron's family; how about everybody who fears the Lord...shout, "His faithful love endures forever!" 

We have so much to be thankful for here at Circle of Hope and at the Grace Center! Will you join us in shouting our praises to God in thanksgiving today?

Let's do this COH style! (Come on, humor me, you can shout outloud!)

Everybody who sponsors a child shout: "His faithful love endures forever!"

Everybody who has been to Malawi shout: "Tithokoze Mulungu!"

Everybody who loves Jesus shout: "His faithful love endures forever!"

Yes! This is what we believe, despite the election results (whether you think they were great or horrific), despite losing one of our sweet little twins, despite the struggles of our situations, our needs, our hurts and pains; we believe that God is faithful and he loves us with everlasting love.

For the precious honor of loving and caring for children in Malawi, we give thanks!
