Late one hot afternoon last week I ran into one of our church members leaving the church property. I asked how he was doing and he responded something like this: “I’m blessed. I’m working with these kids from World Changers, and I am blessed to get to work with them.”
Then he continued on saying: “I am so impressed with these kids. They came here to work in the heat and paid their own way. If the Lord lets me live I’m going to work with world changers every year as long as I live.”
World Changers gives the church the opportunity to be salt and light in a needy and hurting world.
I am thankful for these things about our World Changers commitment.
First, I am thankful for these young people who have come to work and minister in our community. They paid their own way, and they worked these hot days to minister in the name of Jesus. We have about 130 young people from Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, and Texas. They came to work and minister, and they have done a great job.
I am thankful for their commitment. God is going to use them and bless them because of this week.
Second, I am thankful for our pastors and volunteers who have made World Changers work this week. They have put in long hours and prepared faithfully for this week.
Third, I am thankful for those who have been blessed by the World Changers. I ran into one of the homeowners this week. She became emotional telling of how she had been blessed by these young people.
Finally, I am thankful for you – – the church – – for encouraging ministry and opening our church facilities for this ministry.
May God use this week to make Himself known and glorified in our community.
