Latest Ministry Event
We had a wonderful time this weekend with the Service Ministry Teams. One of our ministry partners had to call and cancel our time with them this weekend, so M Squared T had to come up with another opportunity so as not to loose our team's enthusiasm.
We ended up working around the UBC building - with a crew of 8. There were four rooms that had been filled with junk left since the dark ages. Most of that junk needed to go. Moreover, there was a wall in there that had nasty, peeling paint and mold growing on it. We set a crew to scraping that down in preparation for painting. The end result was stunning - space, once unusable, was now available as a ministry resource for the Baptist Student Foundation's mission to the University of Illinois Community.
Thanks be to God!
As a part of our work, I had the crew reflect on what we were doing, trying to help them draw connections between the work we were doing and their Christian lives. I am pleased by the level of growth I am seeing among the crew this year. I pray for even more possibilities in the future!
