God has placed us on the front lines together in the most significant spiritual battle of our time, the fight for a generation of young people trapped in an aimless death march of addiction to hopelessness. This war will not be
won with physical weapons. As we reflect on God's goodness, we are thankful that you are God’s secret weapon in this war. You play a strategic role in this miracle outreach and among so many blessings. We are so thankful for you.

While many are quick to blame the Coronavirus for all of the problems going on around us, the truth is the COVID-19 novel virus merely exposed dangerous undercurrents at the root of a "post-Christian" culture, desperately in need of God. Covid did not create the problems, it revealed them. Thanksgiving is the antidote to hopelessness. During the season let us turn our hearts toward God.
Thanksgiving Day
A USA Celebration with a godly foundation.
George Washington authorized the first Thanksgiving Day in 1789, 74 years passed without another such day of thanks. Then as the CIVIL WAR raged Abraham Lincoln established an annual Holiday in American life. His Thanksgiving Proclamation is worth reading today:

US President, Abraham Lincoln wrote, "I do invite my fellow-citizens in every part of the United States, those who are at sea, and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next as a day of thanksgiving and praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the heavens.

the original proclamation
.
In 1863, The CIVIL WAR CRISIS led President. Abraham Lincoln to reaffirm Washington's call the USA for prayer and Thanksgiving.
In 2020, in a time of COVID, Civil Unrest and hopelessness, it may not be the CIVIL WAR but the circumstances in this divided nation, and global pandemic that has driven hopelessness and addictions worldwide, call us to a fresh infusion of prayer and THANKSGIVING.
 
FLIGHT CANCELLED? STILL ZOOMING FOR JESUS!
Despite cancelled flights and closed borders, God continues to open doors traveling through cyberspace to international ministry. We don't even have to stop to go through security!

With Zoom, You Tube & Facebook Live, we've touched 4 continents in the last 90 days. Your prayers are keeping us on the front line, even when the front line is "Online".

Our Tuesday/Thursday FACEBOOK LIVE Prayer & Praise video streams with Teen Challenge worldwide, chapels and videos have had nearly 100,000 views by TC family and friends, partners, staff, and students around the world. Where 2 or 3 gather in His name, He is THERE, even on the INTERNET. By God’s grace, we are reaching out, speaking HOPE to discouragement, PROMISE into despair, and PRAYING TOGETHER to our God who hears and answers prayer.

 
THANKSgiving leads
to THANKS-living
 

I'd normally question this but hey, it's 2020!

"EVANGELISM
MINUTE"
VIDEO

The roots of Teen Challenge go deep in prayer. From the moment God asked David to stop watching television and spend more time in prayer, to his prayerful drive from Philipsburg for Pennsylvania to New York City on that first fateful trip, prayer has under-girded the ministry of TC.
This two-minute evangelism minute lays the groundwork for prayer and evangelism

The greatest contagion is
not just Covid-19,
it is FEAR. God's LOVE & THANKSGIVING are the CURE.
TAKE HOPE VIRAL!

4  Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near.  Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.
Phil 4: 4 & 6.

 

Ps 100: We enter His gates with thanksgiving in our hearts, His courts with praise. Before prayer becomes effective, it must overflow from a thankful heart. So don’t neglect thanksgiving in your prayer.

Pres. Abraham Lincoln began his proclamation for a “day of thanksgiving, praise, and prayer” with “It has pleased Almighty God to hearken to supplication and prayers of an afflicted people … He concludes:
It  is meet and right to recognize and confess the presence of the Almighty Father and the power of His hand equally in triumph and sorrow.”

On Thursday in the midst of food, football and family, with whatever blessing or limitation that places on your celebration of Thanksgiving, we need to be intentional to make real time for giving of thanks.
GRATEFULNESS
IS BORN
IN TRUST
& ERUPTS IN THANKSGIVING

Have you noticed that we are surrounded by a growing crowd that seems to find comfort that somehow when anything that goes wrong. It is is because…
"After all this is 2020.”

While it is nice to have a year to blame, it is not likely that on December 31st, as that great ball falls in Times Square, New York City and 2021 roars in, suddenly everything will be fine.

Your car is fixed, COVID ends, and a better job. People just burp blessings and bubble rainbows and unicorns. That is not going to happen. The "times" are in God's hands not the calendar pages.

 
As the world battles unrest, COVID, and struggling with financial crisis, people are taking inventory. When you count, do not neglect the most valuable things. Our greatest resources are not reflected in a balance sheet or social media, but life itself and relationship with Him. Our greatest treasures are not in position, possession, or a bank account but treasures of the heart. We sacrifice our peace when substitute what we think we need for trusting His love and sovereignty.
You may not have all that you “want,” but thank God, He is all that you need. He is the great I AM. Even when I feel He is all I have left, still, HE is all we need! Peter 1:3 In Him are ALL Things that pertain to LIFE ad godliness.

PEACE
BEGINS WITH
REJOICING & IS
CONSUMMATED
IN THANKS

Life, family and ministry ... what a precious gifts the Lord has entrusted us. I am often reminded that God’s greatest work is not just blessings we see or provision received. but protection from unseen peril. Arriving safely in Abuja, learning that 12 were been kidnapped on that road. A TC student finds a cobra in my room just before I arrive. January, in a Syrian refugee camp of the Bakaa Valley praying for sick people before we even know there is the coronavirus, God was protecting us. This Thanksgiving may I share a solemn reminder to focus on Him.

He has been better to us than we will ever know.
It is significant that Paul begins this recipe for peace with "REOICE!" & ends with thanksgiving.
Peace begins with joy, is consummated in thanks.

 

This Thanksgiving, as we rejoice in health, God’s bounty, family, provision, and the boundless grace that flows from His presence, do not lose sight of the truth. The most important thing  is not seeing the answer to our prayers, it is seeing the ONE who answers them

It is not just knowing our prayers are answered, it is knowing the One who answers the prayers. That is more than Thanksgiving, that is THANKS LIVING.

7  "Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD And whose trust is the LORD.
8  "For he will be like a tree planted by the water, That extends its roots by a stream And will not fear when the heat comes; But its leaves will be green, And it will not be anxious in a year of drought Nor cease to yield fruit.

Jeremiah 17:7-8 (NASB)
