Giving Thanks and Giving Back

Many of you celebrated Thanksgiving in the U.S. last week, and we hope you were able to enjoy a meaningful celebration with your friends and family.  While Thanksgiving is a "normal" day for us here in Slovakia, we certainly recognize that we have many reasons to be thankful!  Here are just a few of those things...

For an organization and colleagues that make it possible for us to follow God's call.

For a beautiful place to live, where we can find new beauty each season.

For children who give us energy and keep us thinking in new and creative ways!

For the many partners we work with locally - for all the good work they're doing,
and for new opportunities to work with them.

For partner churches who encourage us by their faithful examples of reaching out to their local communities.

For our flexible, loving family that works and grows together

For technology that makes the world a somewhat smaller place

We're thankful for you!!

We try to say it often, so we hope it doesn't become trite... but each month we're reminded of how many of you support and encourage us by your prayers, your words and your contributions.  We wish we could put pictures of each of you up here!

What are you thankful for?  We join you in thanking God for all the blessings each of us has!

Giving Tuesday

Today is known as "Giving Tuesday," and you'll likely receive a lot of offers today to give to  many worthy causes.  Many of you, like us, are trying to decide where to make your end-of-the-year contributions.  Why not consider CBF's Giving Tuesday campaign?  By giving through this campaign, you'll support CBF's ongoing work in the U.S. and all around the world.
