This Sunday was my 8th year anniversary with the church I serve.
They surprised me with a plaque, a cake, a special gift, and wonderful cards written by the children’s Sunday School class. I am blessed.
Also, what makes me feel even more blessed is the way God is rebuilding this church, member by member, family by family. We are baptizing more adults than children. We are gaining new members by salvation rather than transfers. People are becoming involved rather than watching.
It is a real joy to see God work and to know it is not by our efforts but by his Spirit we are blessed!
