IFA THANKSGIVING SURVEY RESULTS
November 21, 2017
We are thankful for you, faithful supporters of IFA. We pray that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you. (Col 1:3)
In a recent survey of IFA followers, we asked you to share your thoughts on Thanksgiving traditions and what you are most thankful for this year. Almost 96 percent of participants reported that the number one thing they were thankful for was the gift of salvation. More than 75 percent of participants said they were also thankful for family and the Bible. The nation and the Church were high on the list as well.
Here are some of your responses:
Thanking God for His Gift of Righteousness. Thanking Him for the blessings of each day. Thanking Him for His abundant provision for our daily needs.
(I am) counting my many blessings and not my troubles; Thankful to God for all He (has) given me. The roses and the thorns!
We share foods that have been passed down in the family for many generations. It connects family across the miles and across the centuries.
Creating packaged meals for the Heartland. Providing warm coats and outerwear for the homeless.
Opening our home up to those who don’t have family to share this time with.
A meal that brings everyone together in unity. It’s not so much the food (for me) it’s the togetherness and love we share.
A reading of Abraham Lincoln’s Thanksgiving proclamation/decree to the nation.
Family togetherness even when apart from each other.
Scripture is full of thanksgiving. Regardless of the time or place, God’s people have always set aside time to thank God for His goodness, His love, and His abundance of grace. As you celebrate Thanksgiving this year, we encourage you to take a moment and consider how God has been faithful to you this year.
