There are a lot of challenges in ministry. This is true.

However, every once in a while, God sends us a little encouragement… a little reminder that we are on the right track. One of these just came in my email from someone who does not attend our church but lives in the area … it reads (slightly edited):

What a great location for your church. The sign looks good. It is amazing how God blesses us (in my case even though I don’t measure up). Who would have thought a Christain Church right on Ellsworth one of the busiest roads in Queen Creek. Keep up the good work for Christ.

So often we get our head into the details and we lose sight of the fact that we are, in fact, making progress! We are so much farther now than we were a few years back! We are at a wonderful time in ministry – our seed has sprouted and soon we’ll be blossoming…

May we bear much fruit for the Lord!
