1 Thess. 1:2-3
We give thanks to God always for all of you, making mention of you in our prayers; constantly bearing in mind your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ in the presence of our God and Father . . .
We thank God for you all the time for ALL of you Thessalonians because I remember your work prompted by faith and how that propels you to labor motivated by the love of God in Your hearts. You do this day in and day out because of the HOPE you have in your Master, Jesus the Messiah before the God and Father.
Give thanks to God for the men and women leaders of the Mid-Willamette Valley whom I just spent three days praying with in Cannon Beach, mentioning each of them by name!
