Congratulations to Mildred Williams, winner of the drawing for free copy of “A Meal with Jesus!”
My goal is to have a block party with my neighbors and invite friends from church. I was praying one day in Dec. and felt really convicted that I was not boldly loving neighbors. That I am simply selfish. I repented and contacted my roommates. Our plan is to give our neighbors a small gift once a month from Jan.-March. In April we are going to have a small block party and invite all of our neighbors. I live in a college town so free food should be bring em! Well we are going to invite friends from church and our hope is by the end of the semester we have stronger relationships and have most if not all of our neighbors checking out Jesus at our church. There is lots of prayer and putting ourselves aside (good stuff) but we are going to do it. Because we want to love boldly like Jesus did and we truly want to have community with others. I am EXCITED!!!!
What an amazing example of a true disciple of Jesus, living a life of sacrifice!
I’ve undertaken the challenge as well but no awesome success story as of yet. She was sick last week, so hopefully will have her over this week. Reaching out is an area I’m very weak in and I often pray God would give me a bigger heart for the people around me and create opportunities to share what he has done in my life in a way that is impacting and powerful.
