–For some locals, it might just be thankfulness to the missionary themselves for their friendship and kindness.

–For others, they might truly understand that by being thankful to and for the missionary, they are actually expressing thankfulness to God for His grace and love that they have experienced through the missionary’s presence in their lives.

Either way, here’s the reality:

Missionaries are His special representatives, spreading His grace to many.

And the Grace-fueled Thankfulness that is produced from those enveloped by the spread of His grace through their presence among the people He has called them to, IS bringing God glory!
