Ask Jackie: Unexpected Blessings

On the road again . . .

Posted on Tue, Jun 28, 2011

Summer Ministry Experience 2011We have about 297 miles until we hit Saint Louis, Missouri. After a weekend spent with family and friends, we are back on the road. At present we have stayed mostly in the north and not far from the Belle Plaine area. We have had the pleasure the last few weeks of working with some established Jesus Cares Ministries programs. Now the task of helping start new programs begins. Our first location in Phoenix will be a lesson for all of us. We will experience things, that we will be able to take with us to the next location. We all have the belief we will be doing amazing work.

In the places we have visited thus far, we have been able to stroll in, set up and not have to explain much about why we are there and what we intend on doing. It will also be amazing to do more explaining. This is truly a chance to help open people’s eyes to the love of Christ, and that fact alone continues to push us through the long days we may face. It makes all of our hard work pay off. This summer is an experience of a lifetime and continues to help us grow, not only in our faith but also as individuals.
