I first want to start off and say Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you have an incredible time with your loved ones. I will be spending my Thanksgiving with the UCLA Campus Pastor, along with some staff members and students. I’m heading to UCLA later to pick up a few students who do not have plans to have them join us.

If you read my email yesterday (or from today’s title), you might be wondering, “Did he meet Taylor Swift and what did she tell him?” I’ll be honest… I do not follow much of Taylor Swift. However, I was quite impressed by a video they played about her before she took the stage to receive the first ever Dick Clark Award for Excellence.

In Philippians 1:3, the Apostle Paul took a moment out to say “thank you.” Paul was genuinely grateful for the Philippian church… from their prayers to their financial partnership of his ministry. Taylor was genuinely grateful for her fans. It wasn’t just about the money, and even in the peak of her success she has been known to go out of her way to bring a smile to the faces of young fans who looked up to her. (she even hopped on a plane to show up at a fans bridal shower she had received an invitation for).

Not only was Taylor grateful, she recognized that she would not be where she is without her fans… In the same way, I would not be where I am without my prayer warriors and financial partners.

 I was up late last night making this video for you. Please take a moment to watch it below.

At the end of the day, the kingdom of God is about relationships. Your relationship with God and your relationship with people. I would not be here if it was not for people like you. God uses people, and I would like to invite you to be a person that God uses to further this ministry.

So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.” – 2 Cor 9:7 NKJV

Americans are going to spend millions on Black Friday tomorrow. My request is that you consider spending part of it on the best black friday deal ever… Partnering with what God is doing through me in reaching this future generation!
