REACHing Out Blurb for JANUARY 19, 2020
Over the years we have had many people come with us on a Monday night Watered Gardens Rescue Team outing. This ministry is far from the concept of “visitation” that many people think it is. Sometimes we are in the woods witnessing to people in a homeless camp, sometimes in an abandoned building called “Murder Mansion” praying with people. But sometimes we will go for a while, even weeks at a time with very little interaction - Nobody is home, we’ve been given bad addresses, no one is in the homeless camps. I’ve seen ministry volunteers on more than one occasion take this to mean that the ministry has become fruitless, God is done with it, and that we are being told to move on. After going for weeks with few good visits, that trip into the abandoned building yielded two people who gave their life to Christ and were baptized, clean off of drugs, living a new life. Results are simply not in our timing, they belong to God. God teaches us all kinds of things in the midst of our fight to consistently do what He has called us to. Just say yes to whatever it is He has called you to (he has, if you belong to Him) and be faithful to keep your commitment, no matter what your perceived results.
Please consider becoming part of a Rescue Team - Mondays, 6:15PM @ Watered Gardens!
