September 2017 Monthly Statistics Report
October 1, 2017
Canadians have a national holiday in October … Thanksgiving! We take the time to gather as families to celebrate God’s goodness to us. It is always a blessing for Marvin and me to see the whole family in one home–being thankful. (Although seldom are all 36 able to be there.)
After a scrumptious turkey dinner and a lot of laughing and talking, we take the time to share what we thank God for. It is so heartwarming to hear every person share – from the youngest to the oldest . Sometimes we share several times .
This morning, while thinking about the upcoming Thanksgiving week-end, this song came to mind:
“Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your blessings, see what God has done!
Count your blessings, name them one by one,.
And it will surprise you what the Lord has done.”
We know that although it is good to have a certain day to focus on thanking God for the gifts He has bestowed on us, we really need to be thankful every day – many times a day. Psalm 100:4 encourages us, “ Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.” Psalm 100:4
This month of September, we as a team, especially want to thank the Lord for the opportunity to serve Him by sharing the Gospel. Over 414,549 visitors who read 121,885 articles/devotions this month.
“ Thank you Lord for using us as your messengers. May their fruit remain!”
