You have been my pastor for a goodly percentage of my life. This letter is a list of things that you have done for which I thank God and you.
Please bear with me, formatting this was difficult.
First, I would like to thank you for preaching the word of God unashamedly. It is a blessing and conviction every time I hear you preach. You have helped drive me to study the word of God on my own, and for that I am grateful.
Second, thank you for your passion for evangelism. It has helped to give me a heart for people that I would not have had otherwise.
Third, thank you for letting me serve in the church and encouraging me. More pastors should encourage their flocks to serve.
Finally, thank you for the sermons and lessons that inspired this letter and my desire to express gratitude.
I hope to live up to the gifts and teaching you have given me.
