Thank you for donating to support the ministry of Anew Day in the month of November. It was a busy month. Many people have graduated from our Counseling Skills Workshop and have gained valuable skills for helping others and maintaining healthy relationships themselves.
The 17th Annual MEB2 Turkey Trot is in the books and it was a great success. God gave us beautiful weather on Thanksgiving, which was a blessing. Around 2,000 people came out to enjoy the morning together. 1,800 of them were registered participants and there were at least 100 volunteers helping pull it all off. I was inspired by the way this event highlights the beauty of our community. What a great group of people and what a fun morning together. Thank you to the Bratton family for your sacrifices in organizing and hosting the Turkey Trot once again. It has become a valuable tradition for so many.
I have mixed emotions in letting you know that our beloved Clinical Director, Keith Thompson, is moving on. I am happy for him as he prepares to take his private practice full time. He has a new office and is excited about taking this step. We wish him all the best in this transition. That said, I am also so sad to see him go. He has served the Lord faithfully through Anew Day for many years. Keith will be with us for several more months as we go through the recruitment and hiring process. Please keep us in your prayers as this position is critical to the culture and quality of our ministry. May God lead us to the perfect fit and go before us to prepare the heart of the person He is calling. Please pray that this individual embraces the beauty and impact of our work as well as the privilege and responsibility of leadership.
Hundreds of people have come through our doors this year seeking help and encouragement. It has been our pleasure to be here for them and to walk with them on the challenging roads of life. Thank you for giving to supply what we need to do the work we’ve been called to do.
With appreciation for your support,
