A Joyful Journey

The Machine October 6, 2008

Filed under: thebridge — martyschmidt @ 10:54 am

Earlier this morning I had a phone conversation with someone from the Ottumwa Schools. This person has played a key role in getting us access to do the free store and connect with teenage moms. We are currently working on a few new projects and as we were talking he made this statement, “Marty, I’ve never seen a machine like yours. You and your people are exactly what this town needs.” I was blown away by this statement as this friend is one who has yet to take me up on my offer to come to church. This is how I’m choosing to process this statement – Marty, I’ve never seen Christ in action like this. Jesus is exactly what this city needs! Let us not cease in doing what is good and right.

    Marty- The credit for the success of Saturday goes completely to the 80+ volunteers who showed up and rolled up their sleeves. We’ve long believed that there are plenty of people who want to help, but they just don’t know where help is needed. You provided an avenue for them to use their talents and energy, we provided an avenue to connect you with them. The rest was God working to bring it all together. Now that we have broken the seal i think we better plan on triple digits…blessings all around!
