As I stated in my keynote address this year,
“Jesus is the reason for the season! Jesus is the reason for all seasons, I believe. And this year has been a season of celebration for our organization and Jesus will always be the reason why.”
We are fortunate to work with people like you, who display an abundance of graces that flow from your good works and the amount of generosity and joy in giving that you generate day after day after day as you engage others as partners in mission.
You are dedicated and committed people worthy of celebration.
