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.
