Do you feel thankful for the year 2020?
I asked myself this question as I look back at the year that has brought sorrow and loss, canceled plans, limited personal interactions and many other things we did not wish for.
We celebrated the start of 2020 as the year of clear vision, and I believe this is what it has been. Just not in the way we expected. The Lord speaks to us in different ways. Instead of heavenly visions and revelatory prophecies, He sometimes shakes up our reality to brush off the gilt and expose what has rotted underneath. The clear vision means to know what stands the test of trial – the institutions, the leaders, the foundations, and the relationships in our personal lives.
Though the trial of 2020 is not over, when it is, we will see clearly and possess the knowledge that will help us face the future with confidence.
So, the answer is yes – Helen and I are thankful. We are thankful for you and other WMA partners who have been by our side when carrying out the Great Commission seemed impossible. We are thankful for the doors the Lord miraculously opened, and even for the ones that were closed. His provision and protection were greater on the backdrop of uncertainty and chaos.
What we are the most thankful for is the vision the Lord has given us for the year 2021 – to break the silence. The enemy has tried to silence the church – he shut the doors of the buildings, he limited our movement and has raised loud and violent voices against the church. 2021 is the year of grace, mercy and favor upon the church and the significant year for the Great Commission.
We are excited to share with you the BIG NEWS on how the Lord has re-arranged our schedule to position World Missions Alliance strategically at the right place at the right time.
We celebrate with you a blessed season of gratitude and joy, and the preparation for the Great Harvest of 2021!
Chuck and Helen Todd
