Letter of Encouragement to be Christ’s Hands, Feet and Voice!
Greetings in Christ!
A singer and songwriter by the name of Gordon Jensen wrote a song some years ago which mentions the fact that you and I as Christians are the only “Jesus” that many people will see.
No, this does not mean we are Jesus Himself of course. We know He is Jesus all by Himself, yet it should be our goal and desire to be just a bit more like Him every day by sharing what Christ is like. We are to be “lights” in a dark world! If there is ever a time for people to see Christ in action through His people, it is today! Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!
It is with a great sense of burden and sadness in my heart as I prepare this note to you. Like you, I have seen such utter devastation and calamity unfolding before our eyes in the aftermath of the earthquake in Haiti.
Jesus said in: Mark 16:15 – “Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.”
Those words spoken by the Lord are at the heart of our desire to share the Gospel with the world through our Missions giving here at First Christian Church. Sadly, the Great Commission has become for many people the “Great Omission”, as they have failed to realize the supreme importance Jesus placed on reaching the lost.

I wanted to take a moment to send you this brief note to inform you of the tremendous giving opportunity being made available to us by Franklin Graham and the ministry team at Samaritan’s Purse.
Every year at this time, a special emphasis is made on ministering the love of Jesus Christ in a very practical way by providing gifts to needy children all around the world, who would otherwise never know the joy of receiving gifts at Christmas time.

On behalf of the Church Board and Congregation of First Christian Church, I am writing to express our appreciation for your willingness to accept God’s call to the Missions field.
We believe that the call God has placed upon your life, coupled with your willingness to serve is an answer to prayer as we can read in: Luke 10:2 – He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!
On behalf of the Church Board and Congregation of First Christian Church, I am taking this opportunity to write to inform you that effective May of 2006, we will be adding you to our “Supported Missionaries” list.
Greetings in the name of the Lord! I wanted to thank you for visiting First Christian Church and sharing with the congregation about all that God is doing in the mission field. I very much enjoyed your preaching and sharing, and I could see that many were moved by the things you shared with us. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!
I am pleased to announce that we will be holding a Missions Convention over a four day period beginning 01/01/01. This is an exciting time for our church as we seek to learn about all that is happening in mission fields all over the world and seek to raise funds to keep these important works alive.
“Your letters have been a great help to our ministry. You’re right, thinking and thinking of what to say can wear you down... so your letters have been a great help. The letters continue to be a blessing to both Andrae and myself. Thank you for being faithful to helping so many in the ministry."
- Andrae’ and Sandra Crouch
(Our sincere appreciation for the wonderful life of Andrae', and his music before being promoted to Heaven recently. Our loss, Heaven's gain).
"I hardly consider myself ever being at a loss for words, but churchletters.org has been an amazing blessing to me in reaching and connecting with friends, colleagues and ministry leaders. Sometimes I use an entire letter that speaks my heart. Other times I use just a phrase that helps me better articulate a letter I personally composed. I use it in letters, emails, more. It saves me a lot of time in the writing process. Churchletters.org sort of reminds of me of a composer writing a great song for a singer to sing. It's really cool because people love being appreciated and edified. Appreciation always wins over self promotion!"
