Throughout my journey this year the most common question I have heard is, "How do you like living in Kentucky?"
There were a lot of times it didn't feel like Thanksgiving or Christmas. Returning to Granny's house for the holidays in the deep south meant it would be stuffy. If there was a chill in the air, it wouldn't be because of the temperature. More times than not, we had the windows open so the heat of the stove could drift out of the house while we ate our turkey and dressing with sweat on our brow.
Making charitable gifts is both an opportunity to express thankfulness for the blessings of life and an opportunity to make a difference in your community through a favorite charitable ministry. It's also an excellent way to reduce your tax obligation for the year.
Christians understand they may never see the fruits of their labor. But that's not the case for Wayne Myers and his wife, Barbara, who served as IMB missionaries to Swaziland for 23 years. And the joys of their labor have been shared in recent weeks with many Kentucky Baptists.
Thanksgiving provides Christians with an immediate opportunity not only to thank God for what He has done, but also to share the love of Jesus around the Thanksgiving table.
During this season of Thanksgiving, all of us here at Clear Creek Baptist Bible College would like to say "Thank You" to Kentucky Baptists for all the many ways you show your support for this ministry.
