"As 2007 draws to a close, I just want to say thanks to You, Father, for all that has been accomplished at Emerald Hills this year — walking trails improved, mulching finished, trash hauled away, bridges built, prayer shelters constructed, work teams involved, Boy Scouts participating, prayer walks completed, "29" partners committed, plans approved, permits secured, cedar log package ordered, the ropes course begun, the front field excavated, the Barn organized, the heat working, a couple united in marriage, a couple renewing their vows, celebrations, retreats, meetings, gatherings, picnics, the unreached prayed for. You were so busy, Father! All praise and honor and glory belongs to You forever and ever and ever. I thank You in the Name of Jesus. Amen."
