The end of every month I print out a report of different measurements on our weekly ministries that include Neighborhood Market, Crisis Relief Ministry, and Clothing Room Ministry. The end of July came and it went, and we are now in August, and I am reflecting on what happened in the last month. Usually when I print out these reports I look at them and then they get stored away, but for some reason I can't help but revel in all that God has done - the known and unknown - in the last month.
Of course, numbers aren't everything, but they are SOME thing, and here are some numbers that I want to share with you and give Jesus all the glory.
247 families served.
269 children in those families.
659 different people in those families.
We had 26 new families visit us at Neighborhood Care Center in July, and so far in 2018 we have made friends with 124 new families.
God is on the move each and every day, and I want to move with Him! Will you join me?
As Mr Rogers would say, "Won't you be my neighbor?"
We have some opportunities to serve the neighbors in our communities.
