Dear IOM Readers, Calvary Greetings from the Almighty God to you in the name of our soon coming King, Jesus Christ. Amen. We the leaders, orphanage children and teachers of the IOM African Orphanage Outreach take this time to appreciate you for adopting our orphans and teachers. A big thank you goes out to you for your direct sponsorship/adoption of our children. Our outreach has been struggling for the past three years until now in our ability to care for the needy children of Liberia. We have no words to adequately express our gratitude for taking on the responsibility in assisting us in our daily burden! It is our hope that God Himself rewards you for your prayers and financial support. Our leadership here in Africa, under the banner of Dr. Stephen Phinney (IOM African Outreach), is sure to be blessed with the abundance of Christ due to your assistance in caring for our children and teachers. We honored you for enabling us to help our children learn, eat, have medication and in due time – shelter. You are so precious to us and I am certain that Jesus is at your door ready to reward you in Heaven. It is our pleasure and thanksgiving that we now have parents in the USA that are thinking about and praying for us every moment of our lives! We are honored to have you on our team. Thanks so much for participating within the fund raising program of the IOM African Outreach – you are making a difference with your giving. May God richly bless you. Lester Wehyee

IOM Ministry Partners in Thailand November is the second month from the end of the year. There were many highlight activities in November. The children enjoyed and had a chance to attend and participate in the significant event, the Abundant Life Festival with Franklin Graham. The Abundant Life Festival with Franklin Graham was the significant event that all the churches in Chiang Mai were holding hands together to bring Good News to Thai people. Our children did not only attended and responded to the message, but they also had a chance to help working on information of people who accepted Christ. The children were really amazed as they worked after the crusade, 10.30 p.m. until 03.00 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights. They were so honored that they were a part of the historical event. Thank you IOM America for being such a faithful partner! - Suvimol Wannakiat

Notes To The Editor Dear Dr Stephen, Congratulations on the success of the IFEL Global Initiative. I have just read your "Thanksgiving" newsletter and I was shocked to read about the "real story" behind this holiday! Are you sure this is actually true? I mean, this would be a monstrosity of a national crime over centuries. That the native Americans were mostly exterminated by the European settlers or mercenaries is somewhat known, about to re-pack this into a fairy tale cynical "thanksgiving" holiday is almost unbelievable. Many greetings from Europe and God bless! - Ronald Babb

Dear Beloved Brethren of God, Much greetings through the exalted name of our Loving Saviour Jesus Christ from Kenya. I am very much pleased to tell you that your teachings on your website are a great blessing to me, my family and the young independent Christian fellowship that I founded when I got the call of the Lord to do so. So, I, my wife , children and some few brethren from the community we are serving the Lord under this Christian fellowship. The fellowship is of 32 members. I also take care of ten orphans whose parents died. In this I am requesting you to send us more teachings that will enable us, as a small church to grow spiritually. As well it is my kind request that you also remember these needy orphans under my care in your daily prayers that God can open them ways for their needs both in physical and spiritual growth—as well I kindly invite you to come here in Kenya and bless our people with the gospel of our Lord Jesus. Kenya needs mighty people of God to lead her into salvation and know the Living God. Please have a kind consideration to extend your kind cooperation for the extension of the Kingdom of God. Also I would be happy if you will accept us to be part of your fellowship. Pass our sincere regards and greetings to all Brothers and Sisters in Christ. - Pastor James
