Pastor Ben brought an awesome message Sunday morning and challenged all of us to serve, put others first, and not to say one thing and do another. He challenged us to reach out to 3 people this week. Do something for some one outside your family. Serve in whatever way possible. Here are some stories I'm being told.
Miro (15): I went to an old lady's house and ask her if I could clean her yard. Then I told her that I was from the church and she explained to me that her leg was hurting. So I prayed for her and invited her to church. She offered me money for the work I did but I refused because I just wanted to help.
Rosalina (55): Helped elderly ladies clean their yards and took care of other things around the house. Funny story because she sent word to Carol that she would not be able to go to the women's group because she was helping people. :)
Leonardo (14): Helped an old man clean his yard. Invited him to church but the old man cannot walk too far so I told him we could pick him up with the new van the church has. He was excited about that.
So many stories coming in of people simply serving. People serving people with what they have. Poverty does not exclude people from following Christ's example.
