We broke out the glue, glitter, pens, paper, stickers and staples the other night in preparation for our upcoming bake sale for the staff at our kid’s school. Let me tell you ,the creative juices were flowing!! We made 4 very colorful posters to promote our 1st fundraiser for our mission trip to Bolivia.
The younger kids were “all in” and very excited to showcase their ideas. Tyler was a bit reluctant to do “crafts”, but thank goodness for technology. He made his on the computer and was pleasantly surprised at how much fun it was. I love to see them working together yet allowing their uniqueness to shine through.
That’s what it’s all about…working together for a common purpose. We have always said to our kids that we are a team. With 6 members that sure constitutes a “team.” We see no other way around life than doing it together! That’s what we ALL were created for. Doing life together, especially us Christians. We all need each other and yes, we are on the same team.
I love to see it when a team is functioning at its full capacity. Everyone working individually out of their giftedness, yet working in sync to accomplish the final goal.
As I stood back from our dining room table covered with scraps of paper, I saw a beautiful picture of unity, love and purpose.
We can’t wait to see what God is going to do in our lives. We are counting on Him to do His part as we continue to be faithful in doing ours. We are taking one step at a time and walking in obedience with Him.
That’s what I witnessed the other day, happening to my family….joy in the process and making every moment count, working together for a common goal.
We would love to invite you to be a part of our team!
Is there something you can do? It doesn’t have to be big or take a lot of time. Ask God to show you how to partner with us. He has made you unique , with your own gifts, abilities, resources, ideas,and passions. Already we have seen people rally around us by way of prayer support, encouragement, financial donations. It doesn’t stop there. Friends and family have volunteered to bake, set up fundraising ideas, even share our story on their FB page! EVERY little bit helps…..THANK-YOU!
Our kids can share our story….and draw cool posters. What can you do that would allow you the joy of watching God use you in powerful ways to accomplish his purpose?
Give us a shout, if you feel led to join our team.
Can you feel it? It’s happening. It’s moving. It’s growing. It’s God at work! Wanna join the FUN???
