great time at vision night & dessert social

Well, we had a great time on Saturday night thinking about the truth that God put you in this place so others would seek his face. This came from Acts 17:26-27: "he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us."

We talked about the importance of seeking the good of our community and our neighborhoods, and we offered the following challenges for between now and halloween.

1. once per week, take a walk around your neighborhood and pray for the people there.
2. once this month, have a neighbor over for dinner and spend time just caring about them and discovering their story.

I can't wait to see what God does through you and I as we live as missionaries to this community.

There

    Although I wasn't at the Gilbert Vision Night, I did hear your message on this topic at church this evening. Excellent message. Very inspiring and thought-provoking. God has certainly gifted you for preaching!
