Thanksgiving Christine Chung Future Young Leaders of America
Christmas greetings to you from Rainbow Family in the name of our Lord!
I give thanks to God who has given us our calling with His love and grace and has allowed us to see the fruits of His gospel in the lives of many this year. The year of 2014 was especially filled with blessings, and we thank our Lord for taking care of our Rainbow Family members and the children of the after school program. Truly, His grace is sufficient for us today.
As our ministry continues to expand, our financial burdens become heavier, but God has given me the patience and obedience to stay humble for the works that are sure to come in the future. I am always amazed to see His working hands through the help of friends like you and I am incredibly thankful.
This year’s Thanksgiving was wonderfully similar to last year’s. Chairwoman Soo Lee brought many dishes for our turkey dinner along with pumpkin pies to share with the neighbors and after school program children. My heart rejoices because God had answered my prayer of being able to touch the lives of many more families in need during this holiday season.
Many of the young children who come to us are raised by single mothers and have difficulties with self-esteem and anger or abandonment issues. They also tend to struggle academically compared to their peers and have trouble forming relationships at school. Through RFI’s after school program, especially its music and art therapy classes, many of these children have begun to show signs of healing and improvement in both their grades and their behavior. Thank God for all of our volunteers, especially our newest volunteer Christine Chung, and their compassion and dedication to our cause.
Thank you once again to all of our supporters who responded to our Phone-A-Thon. I ask for your continual support as I make every effort to raise these children to be healthy and educated members of society in Christ.
Please help me to provide these children in need with presents that will surely brighten their faces Christmas morning;
I need your help!!.
I also give thanks to the Future Young Leaders Of America, who generously donated funds towards our renovation project to further expand our after school and ministry programs.
I promise that with your prayers and support, I will continue to do my best to spread the great love of Jesus Christ in season and out of season.
“Glory to God in the highest heaven and on earth; peace to those on whom his favor rests.” (Luke 2:14)
I pray that the living hope of miracles and blessings are with you and your loved ones in this glorious season.
Because He lives,
Liz Lee / Director of RFI
