Yes… In our backyard

I think that we forget sometimes that missions is an every moment, every where, every person kind of thing.  Its easy to forget it especially when we are overwhelmed by conditions that we see our foreign workers facing that seem so alien to our comfortable existence.

Nearly a year ago, my family got involved with an inner city children’s ministry that involved helping them conduct worship for the children and feeding them a warm, nutritious meal.

Last fall a group of our teens were working with one of our church families to start a similar ministry on the other side of the inner city.  I taped our prayer walk around the new neighborhood and spliced in some footage at the end of  us working with the kids at the existing ministry.  You will also meet Bill who lives among the homeless helping them get some much needed supplies.

Please forgive the graininess of the video – I had technical difficulties with YouTube.

As you can see, missions for the impoverished can happen in our own back yards.  My family goes down every month and we have invited members of our adult Bible Fellowship class to join us.  We have been blown away by the response that we have received from our church family to this need.

Where are you doing church?
