Last week was a very interesting week. As you probably remember, we had a small blizzard. The challenging part was that we only had 3 people show up for Adopt-a-Block. The good news was that we had a snow blower at our disposal. As we knocked on doors people saw the snow blower. Many of them who normally are not interested in connecting with us started to chat a little. In the end, we were able to help several dozen people with their sidewalks in less than 2 hours!
The most exciting part of the day was when a lady asked us to pray for something in our church. We offered to pray with her right there on her step. She agreed and we began to pray. After we finished praying, she thanked us and told us that she was feeling a little emotional. She was touched by God that morning through an Adopt-a-Block volunteer!
On another note, in church last week we ran a new promo video for Adopt-a-Block. If you missed it, you can watch it here.
We are in the process of setting up teams of people that are willing to come out once a month. In the next few weeks I will begin to make a schedule with 4 teams of people so that we can continue to minister to people like the lady I mentioned earlier.
At this point, we have around half a dozen people who have already said yes to once a month. We need to at least double that to be able to do this properly. Let me know if you feel like that is something you could do. We are asking for you to commit one Saturday morning a month to share God’s love to the people in our community.
