Seeing the fruit of ministry is something that is not always easy. More often than not it takes time and patience, which is something that is sorely lacking in most of us, myself included. If you think this is not the case, just consider the fact that it has taken 2000 years for Jesus to build His church and it still is not finished.
Over the past two months, I have been teaching through Colossians on Wednesday nights. So far, we have not seen a revival or mighty move of God, but never the less there are stories of fruit beginning to appear. Let me share with you one such story:
Jordan and Erika are in their early twenties, became newlyweds last spring, and moved to Canby in May. They have always been a part of a church but due to their new jobs, they have not been able to attend any regular Sunday morning services.
While attending school, Erika is working at Gwynn’s Coffee House on Wednesday nights. She was so excited about our new Bible Study when she found out about it! Both she and Jordan have been joining us after her shift to have a time of worship and the Word. She said to me, “I have been praying the Lord would lead us to a church and instead He brought the church to us!”
With this in mind, I would like to make you aware of a need they have. Five years ago, Erika was in a bad car wreck that shattered her pelvis. Next Wednesday, December 18th, she will be going into surgery for a hip replacement. At the age of 23, this will be her fifth time in the hospital as a result of her accident. Would you please consider reaching out to this young couple with prayer and by possibly providing a meal for them? If so, you can sign up on the Meal Train link below.
