Paul and Timothy, servants of Christ Jesus, to all God’s holy people in Christ Jesus at Philippi, together with the overseers and deacons: Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus (Philippians 1:1-6).
As the Vice President of Outreach at the American Family Association, it is my mission to meet as many of you as possible for the purpose of building a relationship and to express my most sincere appreciation. The highlight of my 7 years on staff full time has been traveling to several states, hosting different events, and meeting nearly 12 thousand of our most faithful supporters like yourself.
There is much to be discouraged about with the new presidential administration, Big Tech, Corporate America, and the list goes on. Things seem to be moving so fast that you hardly have time to react before they get worse. I want to remind you there is a lot of ministry taking place and AFA/AFR is right in the middle of it every day. Click here and here to see just a few of the many ways God is using us. It is an honor to not only keep you informed on moral issues that affect you and your family but also to give you tangible ways to collectively make a difference where God has placed you, for God's glory and the good of others.
As you stay connected with us, listen to our radio programming, and take action, I want to say thank you! On behalf of my papa (Don Wildmon), my dad (Tim Wildmon), and the entire AFA staff I want to thank everyone who has stood and continues to stand with AFA! I want to thank all those who have and will continue to give sacrificially. I want to thank all those who listen to American Family Radio and for your trust. I also want to remember all who respond to our Action Alerts, and partner with our other departments such as One Million Moms, One News Now, AFA Journal, etc. AFA has always depended on faithful followers like you to join with us and to live out your faith in the public arena. American Family Association wants to say thanks for your partnership in the gospel from the first day you found our ministry until now.
I want to thank everyone who is reading this for your part in helping AFA stand for biblical principles. It is certainly not about ourselves but God working through us to carry out His purpose through this ministry. We know that you are counting on AFA in many ways and we, in return, are counting on you. We understand we will win some and lose some but no matter what, let's continue to stand together to make our lives count for the work of the Kingdom.
And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God (Philippians 1:9-11).
