Giving Thanks for You

November 15, 2018 by Nicole Curtis

Thanksgiving is a time to slow down and reflect on all the blessings in our lives, giving thanks to God for them. This Thanksgiving, we give thanks for you, our Upper Room family. Whether you’re a subscriber, writer, donor, participant in Emmaus or The Academy for Spiritual Formation, or a ministry partner in another way, you play an important role in sustaining and expanding the ministries of The Upper Room. 

This year you helped us:

  • Honor the 80th year of publication of El Aposento Alto, the Spanish edition of The Upper Room, and the Korean edition of The Upper Room.
  • Launch Discovery Weekend, a spiritual formation retreat for middle schoolers.
  • Celebrate 35 years of ministry with The Academy of Spiritual Formation.
  • Pray with thousands of people by name and need through The Living Prayer Center.
  • Host 600 Walk to Emmaus weekend walks, including 70 international ones, and offer the first-ever Africa Leadership Development Event for Emmaus Ministries, held in Harare, Zimbabwe.
  • Connect three million people with God through The Upper Room daily devotional guide in its 90 different formats found in over 100 countries and in 34 languages.
  • And so much more by God’s good grace.

Working together, we have produced a bountiful harvest that has fed many. We give thanks for you!
