Happy Thanksgiving from the Alphins

Holiday Greetings!

Once again, we have arrived at the time of year when most Americans pause to reflect, both on life and the benchmark moment in history that was the starting point for the holiday. For those of us who put God at the center of our very existence, the thoughts also focus upon the One who is the giver of life and sustenance, the One to whom we give thanks for all things.

In Finland, as we enter a new day between 7 and 10 hours earlier than the USA, our thoughts towards you have begun very early today.

Financial partners, we give thanks to God for you, more often than you know, for what you are enabling Him to do here in Finland. We truly appreciate your willingness to to make it possible for Jesus, with our help, reach the Finnish people. May He continually to bless you for your gifts to His Kingdom.

Prayer warriors,
you are the ones who continually uphold us, petitioning God to strengthen and cover us. Those prayers are heard by the Lord and felt by our family, and we are so thankful for you.

Thank you for your support in every way -- we could not possibly do 'what we do' without YOU! We pray for you often, asking God to both strengthen, equip, and bless you richly.

May your holiday be mightily filled with His presence,

Mark, Glenda, Miranda, and Candace
