Please Pray for the ISI Thanksgiving Dinner this Sunday

2014 | by Clint | Category: Global,Iternational Students Incorporated,Prayer

This coming Sunday nearly 100 International Students will enter our church building on a mission to understand our culture and religious practices in greater detail.  We welcome this mission and long to know them better, understand them better, and converse with them better.

Our prayer is that as they experience this Thanksgiving meal the words of Abraham Lincoln might ring true not just for us, but for them one day as well:

“I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens.”

– Abraham Lincoln, Proclamation of Thanksgiving, Washington, D.C. October 3, 1863
