Reflections Along the Way

From the Desk of Steve Macchia

Many Reasons to Celebrate God's Faithfulness

In November the LTi family gathered to celebrate the first 8 years of our ministry. We met at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary for a day-long leadership development event entitled “Re-Ignited: Kindling Our Inner Fire for God” with our friend and special guest Chris Webb, president of Renovare. On the following day we held our annual celebration reception for donors and friends at the National Heritage Museum in Lexington (MA). It was a festive weekend to commemorate the work of God in our midst and to rejoice together in his faithfulness. Click here to review our 2011 Annual Report.  

I’m especially grateful to the Lord for the outstanding team he has assembled and look forward to how the work of our hands and the prayers of our hearts will be multiplied for his glory in the year ahead.
