Thank you from OurChurch.Com!

Written by Mark Steinbrueck

We are 2 days away from Thanksgiving here in the United States.

It is a national holiday dedicated to giving thanks for all of our blessings.

We here at OurChurch.Com have so much to be thankful for that we could go on for days but because kickoff is in 48 hours, we want to give 3 specific shout outs:

  • Thank you to all of our customers:  Helping you live out your mission online is our mission.  We appreciate the opportunity to serve you & consider it a privilege to partner with you.
  • Thank you to all of our staff:  I am amazed by the wonderful men and women who serve OCC customers.  Because we work in the world of the internet, your job duties are constantly changing and are often asked to go above and beyond the normal call of duty.   All of it is met with willingness and “can do” attitude.
  • Thank you to God and our Lord Jesus Christ:  We thank you for your guidance and provision over the past 21 years.  Through the highs and lows, you have carried us through.  We are humbled by your grace and know none of this would have been possible without you.

“If you want to turn your life around, try thankfulness. It will change your life mightily.” -Gerald Good

  • A long time Friend in Kansas is celebrating the cancer treatments that is sparing her 57 year old daughters life….only a small number of people are spared death with the lung problem the cancer treatment is repairing. Congratulations Family ….God is Good!

  • I am continuing to Praise God that He spared my Son’s Life after being the 1st to come off of Dialisis Treatments which is listed in the Medical Books, and My Son is alive, well, and working for The Lord, and the Doctors that God sent to do his Heart Surgery several years ago found the really bad heart he had and pulled and peeled off the white stuff on his heart and not only did the heart start working, his kidney treatments ended right away! God is Good!

  • I was a combat infantryman w/ the 4th I.D. in Nam. I am a born again Christian since I was 16 years of age in 1962. I am so thankful to Jesus for watching over me throughout my Nam Tour of Duty from Nov. 20, 1966 thru Nov. 20, 1967. Especially on 7/23/1967 when we were involved in a huge battle with the entire 66th North Vietnamese Regiment near an old Rubber Tree Plantation in Plei Ya Bo, RVN. We were heavily outnumbered. 9 NVA companies to our 2 companies. We made up for it with our supporting fire eg. F4C phantom Jets, 175mm Artillery, 155 and 105mm artillery. After about 2 hours of fierce fighting them they finally went into retreat mode and we received our orders to go after their retreat. Then in approx. 200 meters from our original battle scene I came upon an uprooted tree from the destruction from a 2000 lb. H.E. bombs that one of Phantoms had dropped onto them. Their dead NVA bodies lying everywhere. Then all of a sudden, I saw two AK-47 Rifle barrels pointed right at me! There was also shooting going on all around us by the NVA and my war brothers in the NVA Retreat! What happened next you must be a believer in Christ to believe. I had already taken 3 human lives one of which was in this particular battle that I knew for sure that I took their lives and who knows how many more lives I took in all of our battles. This is what happened next, when I spotted them I brought up my M16 with my safety in the full Auto mode with my trigger finger around the trigger. An unknown force prevented me from pulling my trigger in a split second. Neither did they pull their triggers. We stared at each other and then I broke Ice by speaking in Tongue, Chu Hoi which I thought was the phrase for do you surrender to me. Then they tossed their AK-47s to my direction and took their praying posture before me with their hands clasped together under their chins and bowing to me. This was the first live captives that I had ever witnessed in my entire year of tour of duty in Nam! This is my “Thank You to Jesus Christ My Savior” for not only this Incidence but the many incidences in Nam!
