This week I was able to spend some one-on-one time with several men in the church. One, fixing the brakes and a few other things on his motorcycle, and another installing a bar lock on a part of his business to prevent theft.
While the moments I can do these things for others is sweet, my favorite part of getting to know the person I’m working with on a deeper basis. Village Missions makes these moments possible and they are a reflection of the care and joy God finds in each unique individual.
This Sunday was a moving example of God working on the hearts of those here in Pine Valley as we celebrated 14 baptisms! From children to adults, we saw evidence of people committing themselves to Jesus. In addition, the body of believers here lifted up those in celebration by bringing potluck items and opening their home (and hot-tub) to the occasion.
