I’m so grateful for all that Thrive has done for the advance of the Gospel, even amid a pandemic. The Vernon Hills congregation has been able to start weekly services and we are excited for how smoothly things are progressing with securing a permanent location. It’s also been encouraging to see the staff members the Lord has sent to start this congregation. And in these past few weeks, our children as well as our students have started meeting. Moreover, we now have more than 150 solid commitments to Vernon Hills and another 50 people who are still praying about fully committing. The Lord has used Thrive to build a new Gospel-preaching congregation in The Orchard, and I’m looking forward to seeing all the fruit that is yet to come.
