Dear Donors, Prayer Partners, and Friends of IAMercy,
This Thanksgiving I reflected on how much God has provided for my family and this ministry through those of you who give to us generously and pray for us regularly. I have continued to be grateful for our donors and prayer partners as we progress through the holidays.
As I reflect over the year there are a few things in particular for which I want to thank you.
Thank you for giving so that we could invest in girls this year. We had several girls start to come to our feedings many months ago. I am glad to report that they continue to attend our events. We are thinking and praying about how we might help some of them more holistically in the coming year.
Thank you for empowering us to continue to reach a whole host of boys. We now have about 60 people who attend our feedings (boys and girls combined) - though they don't all come at the same time. That said - recently there have been upwards of 50 at several feedings. Thank you for making these feedings possible.
Thank you for helping to pay for Julius' and Vincent's school fees. They both just graduated from High School in October! I am very proud of them, and you should be too. You helped them to reach this very important milestone.
And - at this season - thank you for helping to make our holidays fun. IAMercy just bought Christmas clothes for my sons who live with me. I had a box of candy delivered today with which I plan to stuff the stockings. On account of your generosity we feasted on Thanksgiving, and we plan to feast again for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Our lives are rich - and you have greatly helped to enrich them.
Merry Christmas from my family to yours!
