Give Thanks to the Lord!

November is traditionally the month for us, as a nation, to stop and give thanks for the bounty of the harvest. As Christians it is a time to stop and reflect on God's goodness and to give God the honor and glory He deserves. We have been blessed at ETS with 20 years of serving missionaries worldwide. From the humble start of an overfilled basement in Keith Jones' home, to our current buildings and storage buildings in Weyers Cave, God has always been faithful to provide for His children.

We rejoice to report that ETS was able to send Ragaee A. Danial $8,612 to purchase a 2004 Daewoo Lanos. The vehicle will be used to transport children to his evangelism festivals and to help transport teachers to the villages. ETS has never been able to raise this large amount before and we praise the Lord for each of you who gave so generously.

We also rejoice to report that the Missionary Resource Directory has been updated and installed on the ETS website. Many hours of research went into the Directory as 90% of it had changed since its last updating. Many thanks to Margaret and Jerry Baron from Tomoka Christian Church in Ormond Beach, Florida for their endless persistence and tenacity in seeing to its completion. It is our hope that the ministries represented will be able to assist countless missionaries and ministries in proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ.

We were also blessed by a group from Savannah Christian "Late Church". They helped us fill a container of summer clothing for Nicaragua as well as loading a truck for a container going to Liberia. While the boys loaded the 992 boxes of clothing, the girls were feverishly packing them for loading.

We are a staff of 5 people so our volunteers are our life blood and enable us to accomplish the things we do for our missionaries. We want to thank you, whether you have volunteered your time, your talent, your money or your prayers, they are greatly appreciated and we have been blessed. Thank you. The ETS Staff
