Let Us Give Thanks

Proclaimed ‘a day of general thanksgiving to Almighty God for the blessings with which the people of Canada have been favoured’ by the Canadian government on January 31, 1957, Thanksgiving Day remains a day of faith, family and gratitude for many Canadians across the country.

As we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving this year, the team at EduDeo Ministries would like to take this opportunity to thank God for His rich blessing and to also thank you -- our supporting community -- for your generous giving!

EduDeo Ministries has many things to be thankful for:

  • We thank God for the privilege of sharing the Gospel message in classrooms across the globe. We are thankful, despite global political unrest, economic uncertainty and poverty, that Christ is Lord and remains sovereign over all.
  • We thank God for a gifted and generous support community in Canada. Whether it’s the father and son team who helped with the construction of new offices at EduDeo Ministries in Hamilton, HANDS members who help with the construction of a school, or experienced Canadian Christian educators who propel our ‘Walking Together’ program forward, we thank God for blessing us with skilled volunteers and willing hearts.
  • We thank God for our passionate and growing partners -- ACECEN and the Nehemiah Center in Nicaragua, the PCSB in Belize, COCREF in the Dominican Republic and the CCAP in Zambia -- as they strive to impact their communities by implementing a Biblically-integrated approach to the classroom.
  • We thank God for opportunities to raise support for the cause of Christian education in the developing world, including the much anticipated Outlook Summit, Friday, October 19 and the 7th Annual Road2Hope run/walk of hope, Saturday, November 3.

As we take time to think about God’s blessing in our lives this Thanksgiving weekend, we realize we have so many material and spiritual gifts to be thankful for. Whether in ministry, work or personal life, we pray your family, church and school will be blessed throughout the fall season.

Yours, O Lord, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and you are exalted as head above all. Both riches and honour come from you, and you rule over all. In your hand are power and might, and in your hand it is to make great and to give strength to all. And now we thank you, our God, and praise your glorious name. (1 Chronicles 29:11-13, ESV)
