Greetings, and happy Two Year Anniversary! I hope my message finds you and your families healthy and well in these presumed waning days of the pandemic. We have much to be thankful for as we enter into the Thanksgiving season, and we give glory to God for the blessings we enjoy. If we have the opportunity and means to log into Star Trek Online, we are indeed wealthier than many parts of the world.
PROGRESS. Despite only a few fleet activities this year, recently reaching Level 42 was no small feat, especially with only a few members. Keep up the great work! I continue to be thankful for the camaraderie we enjoy; each of us is comfortable to share personal challenges on Discord, and we make ourselves available to pray at a moment's notice. Thank you for that concern for each other.
FLEET SOCIAL. With the holidays approaching, opportunities to connect again may be scarce, but I desire to gather for a fleet social during the Winter Event. Once the dates are announced, I will put at least 2 dates on the calendar so everyone has the chance to participate. I encourage you to invite at least 1 non-member to the Winter Event social so we may expand our ranks and share the purpose to which we are called.
MEETINGS. In 2023, I plan to schedule fleet officer meetings on a bimonthly basis (i.e., every other month). As I shared on Discord, Sun. evenings are no longer convenient for me. I now lead a Bible study and often do not return home until 9-10p ET. Fleet officers, please message me privately with nights of the week that will NOT work for you (and perhaps evenings you prefer) so we may plan accordingly.
Until we gather again, I pray for God's blessings to continue to be poured out onto you and that He may provide you opportunities during this season of celebration to share the Gospel. Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen. 2 Peter 3:18.
Keep the faith!
