St. Giles received the following letter from Jerry and Christy Shannon and their family this week. The Shannons were with us earlier this year as they traveled the US while on furlough. Our congregation supports their family's international mission efforts through both prayer and financial support. God is good.
Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas to you! Enclosed you will find a new Prayer Magnet for our family. We really appreciate how many of you put these on your fridge and pray for our family! You will also find a small piece of Ethiopia in there. We know that it looks like a stick, but in reality, it is an Ethiopian toothbrush. They are sold all over the city for folks to use to brush their teeth - no toothpaste needed, just rub your teeth with it... We really appreciate you and the ways you have walked with us over this past year in prayer, support and encouragement. We can't do this without folks like you! Here's a recap of a bit of our year:
Here's what's happening in the lives of our family members:
Love, Jerry and Christy
