2014: Giving Thanks

by The Gideons International on November 25, 2014

Thanksgiving verse 1 Timothy 4:4-5

In the USA, the Thanksgiving holiday this week is traditionally associated with giving thanks for the many blessings provided by God.

We would like to take this opportunity to express our thanks for the many people who are so instrumental in helping us share God’s Word throughout the world.

We want to thank our donors. Your faithful giving helps provide Scriptures to people who otherwise might not be able to afford them or even know how to have a real relationship with the Lord.

Pastors, thank you for helping inspire our members to witness and share God’s Word with a lost world. Every Scripture our members place, and the souls saved as a result, are a fruit of your labor.

To our 300,000 Gideons and Auxiliary who give of their time, energy, financial and spiritual gifts to help us share God’s Word, thank you. Your dedication to serving our Lord is a tremendous blessing and is impacting many lives throughout the world.

Most of all, we are thankful for the redemptive grace of our Lord, Jesus Christ. In Him, we have been enriched in every way.

May you and your loved ones enjoy a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
