I Quit Going to Church

Dear Church,

I can’t believe it, but we now have 36 people committed to going on the Work and Witness trip to Rwanda next March! Our planning team talked about this opportunity and thought it might generate some interest. So, we worked out the details, rolled out the ask and … boom! Almost instantly we have a full team!

I know going to Africa will be a great adventure and going with this particular team will make it even better, but I’m most excited about what God will do in us and through us as a result of this trip. He’s going to enlarge our hearts, stretch our vision, push us out of our comfort zone, increase our passion for his work around the world, reveal himself more fully … and, who knows, perhaps work on our endurance, patience, etc., etc.

My prayer is that, as we seek to “be the church” during this spring break, the Lord might bring about, in greater measure, the in-breaking of the Kingdom of God in us and through us.

 

Anticipating!

Joel
