There is a couple at my church who have been involved with children’s ministries before Sandi and I started going, and that’s been since October 2001. They have quite a testimonial, but I’ll save that for possibly another entry.
Andrea is not bashful in her goal year after year. In a nutshell her goal is: To move One child One step closer to the Kingdom. It’s simple, measurable. There’s no room for misinterpretation, at least in my reasoning. Everything she plans and does for gathering of children over the years revolves around her mission statement: Just One Step Closer.
I was thinking… what if we could do that very thing for the Kalamazoo Area Emmaus community, Just One… Just attend One Gathering, Just bring One Person, Just Pray for One person to attend a weekend, Just Sponsor One Pilgrim… The list can go on, it’s not like we’re asking you to sponsor all thirty-six pilgrims, Just One. And it’s not like we’re asking you to give up an entire Saturday for the Gathering, Just a couple of hours (Okay, that is more than Just One hour…but)
Sometimes we make things out to be bigger and harder than they really are. So let’s keep it simple, let’s try Just One… for Kingdom Building. Remember - You’re Counting on Christ and Christ is counting on You… so start counting with Just One.
