We have much to be thankful for this year at the Billy Graham Training Center at The Cove. We’ve been blessed beyond measure, and we are grateful to God and to each of you for that.
Over the past several months at The Cove, we’ve had outstanding speakers who have shared with us clear and inspiring truths from the Word of God. Attendees at the seminars have commented to us that they felt the presence of God in this place, and their faith was deepened and enriched through the teaching here. They’ve left feeling more equipped than ever to walk in righteousness and reach those around them who need to hear of the hope of the Savior.
This is exactly what my grandparents, Billy and Ruth Graham, envisioned when they built this beautiful place, and I know that my grandfather is moved when he hears of what is happening here.
In addition to the seminars, we’ve had several concerts with nationally-known musicians who take time out of their busy schedules to stop in for an intimate performance at The Cove. Thousands have taken advantage of these events – called An Evening at The Cove.
One of the most moving events that has taken place this year was the National Law Enforcement Retreat in October, sponsored by the Billy Graham Rapid Response Team. Police officers from the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom took time away from their very stressful duties to learn how to deal with the emotional and spiritual challenges they and their families endure on a daily basis. This was a wonderful time of ministry. Men and women who have seen and lived through things most of us could never even imagine, were able to let their guard down and pray, worship and heal together. Marriages were reconciled and families strengthened.
As we approach the end of November, we’re now looking forward to one of the prettiest times of the year: Christmas at The Cove. We hope you’ll have an opportunity to visit us in the coming days to see the beautiful decorations and take in some of the exciting events and sing-alongs on the schedule in the waning weeks of 2014.
My friends, at Thanksgiving, I’m so thankful for you. Each of us who have the blessing of working at The Billy Graham Training Center at The Cove realizes every day the importance of your prayers and support. None of what I’ve just mentioned would be possible without you and God’s blessings. We are eternally grateful.
May you and yours have a happy Thanksgiving and a blessed Christmas!
