In the past few weeks we have been celebrating a number of things at the Children’s Home and it is all because of you. We are rejoicing over the great response our churches have made to the Fall Food Roundup. The Roundup supplies all the non-perishable food items we need for the entire year. Thank you so much for collecting those cans of corn and jars of jelly to meet the physical needs of our children.
We also celebrated the 25th anniversary of our Granberry Counseling Centers. In those twenty-five years, you have helped us provide professional Christian counseling for over 30,000 individuals. This past year we provided help and hope to over 900 people. Thirty-six of those were Louisiana Baptist ministers and their family members. Counseling was provided for them at no cost because of your generous support and a partnership with the Pastoral Leadership division of the Louisiana Baptist Convention. Currently, Granberry has 12 locations across the state. Thank you so much for meeting needs and sharing Christ through our Granberry Counseling Centers.
Finally, we are celebrating the growth and hope we see each day in the lives of our children. Some are beginning to trust while others are starting to laugh. Some are learning for the first time that they are loved, and others are learning that they can accomplish great things with a little effort and encouragement. Best of all, many are believing that God has a great plan for their lives and that Christ is the beginning and end of that plan. Thank you for meeting these most important needs.
As we all look forward to Thanksgiving, our children and families are thankful for your special love and care. They are thankful for the safe and loving, Christian home you provide. They are thankful for new clothes, school supplies, the opportunity to play in the band or on a sports team. They are thankful for their cottage parents and other staff who are such a blessing to their lives. They are thankful that you are helping them grow into all God has planned for them. They are thankful that you helped introduce them to Jesus.
I pray that you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving. As you celebrate God’s goodness in your family, know that we are celebrating His goodness in our family, the blessings that your have provided through your generous support. May the Lord bless you as you have blessed our children at your Louisiana Baptist Children’s Home.
