Thank-You Notes!

Sometimes we get Thank-you notes at the office and we don’t pass along the gratitude of other people to the church like we should. I want to fix that with this blog post. Here are a few of the ways New Life Church has blessed people lately (For reference, Mark Hanson was the elder who corresponded with the missionaries below):

Dear New Life Church,

Thank you so much for your generous support for the West Linn High School 2019 Baccalaureate service. it was a wonderful gather for our graduates. We are so pleased we can continue this tradition that encourages our students in their faith. Please express our thanks to the congregation.

Sincerely, Beth and the 2019 Baccalaureate committee

Dear New Life Church,

Thank you so much for your generosity with some funds from the Robinwood sale. Your large gift is greatly appreciated and is helpful in fulfilling a need.

Thank you for your prayers and generosity throughout the years. I cannot express how much I feel loved by New Life Church.

Thank you so much, Bruce Tissell

 Dear Mark and the executive team of the New Life Elders,

What a blessing that we never expected! We were blessed first of all by joining in praying for the Robinwood property's sale to be successful. Now we're really blessed hearing about giving the first fruits from the sale to the New Life ministry partners. Thank you all very much for this generous gift. You are extremely thoughtful and gracious. You know how to make us smile after being overwhelmed by the news.

We can say with the apostle Paul, "Not that I seek the gift itself, but I seek for the profit which increases to your account...Now to our God and Father be the glory forever and ever. Amen." Philippians 4:17, 20.

Thankful in the Lord, Paul and Diana Mayhugh

Hi Mark,

Thanks to our Lord Jesus and to the group of elders for having made us participants in your missionary project!

Your gift arrives opportunely to meet our actual needs. God bless you greatly!

With love in Christ, Michele and Anna

Dear Mark,

Alice and I want to thank you and the executive team of the New Life elders

for the huge blessing you are sending our way. This is such a great encouragement to us and a tremendous help to us that time. We are so thankful also for the encouragement you have given to Michele Gandolfo. I’m passing on to you in another email a translation of their note of thanks to you.

The Lord bless you and the team there with His joy and wisdom as you redirect resources from the Robinwood campus sale. We feel very blessed getting to be a part of the first fruits blessings that you have shared with us!

We look forward to seeing many of you when we are in Oregon in January of next year!

 WOW! This is amazing!!!!! Thank you New Life Church!!!!!!!

This is a fantastic year to receive an extra one-time gift as there have been extra ministry expenses! I will also use some of it for leadership debriefing for our 8 young Slovene leaders that are running camp this year.

THANK YOU for this gift, but also for the faithful support these past 9 years.

Stephanie

Hello Mark and rest of the elder team,

What a pleasant and unexpected surprise to get word about your gift. Thank you so much! Actually I have a story to tell you.

Last week Sara and I were discussing whether we would attend a conference that our

Company is hosting in a neighboring country this fall. We came to the conclusion that at this time we didn’t have the financial margin to do so. We left it at, “if for some reason we get a gift that would cover the cost of the trip, we will take it as a sign we should go.” Your gift appears to be the Father’s timely answer. Again, thanks so much.

We are happy to hear about kingdom advances in your part of the world. Thanks so much for giving leadership to NL at home and abroad!

Much love to you and your families, Nathan and Sara

Dear Mark,

Wow! What an unexpected and generous gift! Thank you very much.

We remember the excitement when we acquired the building that would become New Life Robinwood. We have fond memories of PIA conversation partner gatherings and Sports Camp at Robinwood, and so much more. The Lord is good to have redeemed that property for us and we now anticipate what He will do next.

Thank you to the Elder team and all at New Life Church for your continued love and support. We are humbled and amazed by your goodness to us.

Sincerely,

Brian and Judy

Wow! What a blessing!

Thank you to everyone at New Life!

As you may know from our updates, we have an unscheduled visit to Oregon this summer for LaVonne’s mom’s health.

This will be a huge help!

Thank you again!

Meeting needs, transforming lives

Brian & LaVonne

Hi Mark,

Thank you for relaying the fantastic news! It couldn’t come at a better time. Please pass my gratitude to the executive team. The Lord is once again using you to bless many others.

Yours in Christ’s service, Rich

P. S, If the church leaders, haven’t done so already, please read my newsletter, "Halfway to the Goal"

I hope you are encouraged like we were!
