I wanted to thank each of you for helping shepherd the men God has entrusted to your care on their journey to godly manhood. That is no small thing. As our brother Roger Gannam put it on Saturday morning at the Men's Easter Breakfast, by doing so, you are helping to build your part of God's Kingdom.
The men you are investing in will, in turn, better be able to minister to their families, bear witness for Christ in their workplace, and serve as his ambassadors in all the other spheres of their lives. Brothers, this is no small thing! Remember our Lord's words about that tiny, seemingly insignificant mustard seed (Matthew 13:31-32).
Your weekly faithfulness may not garner the attention and applause of the masses, but I can promise you this: This is how God builds his Kingdom on earth. To paraphrase Nehemiah, "you are doing a great work."
So brothers, I give praise to God for each of you. Thank you!
Your Brother in Christ,
