Ministry Highlights and Prayer Focus


Whenever I read Luke 17: 11-19, I am challenged to live more like the grateful leper who returned to give thanks to the Lord when he realized he was healed.  Too often I am quicker to ask God for what I need, instead of thanking Him for what I receive. In the spirit of “thanksgiving”, let me share some things I am thankful for this month.

I am thankful our children and staff have remained COVID-19 free.  I am thankful for the safe travels God provided for our staff, both in town and out-of-state.  I am thankful for new staff members who have joined us to enrich our Ministry team.  I am thankful for our House of Hope to be reopened and now providing a home for new children.  I am thankful for the donation of winter hats and health supplies for our Christmas visits and new handmade quilts provided by a local women’s group to be given to new children as they come into our care.

The list of blessings at The Four Corners Home for Children is endless, because our Lord’s love and faithfulness is endless.  I know it is the same in your life.  Take time to thank Him today for His kindness to you.  “Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, His loving mercy endures forever.”  Psalm 136:1
