Nothing helps energize me quite like helping people accomplish something that would otherwise not be possible. Last night we were suppose to help someone move in Ottumwa but ended up doing some sheetrocking for someone else and postponed the move to today.
I wasn’t sure if anyone outside of Chris would show up but there in the BVC parking lot this morning was Smurf (could be one of the funniest people to attend thebridge yet) and later our friends who we are currently sheetrocking for showed up. It is awesome how this serving one another is turning into pay it forward. Larry helped us out with his truck and Brian also showed. I can’t even begin to describe what we walked into when we started to load the trailers. Let’s just say I was taken back a little (or a lot).
When we arrived at the new apartment to start unloading I saw my friends Jim and Maria driving and waved them down. Jim jumped right in and in less then a minute waived down another Jim who went and got his son who, yes is also named Jim.
Every Sunday morning we show up for church and simply hear messages and sermons (including myself) but that isn’t chuch at all. This was church! God answered some major prayers on my behalf and boom I got some bounce back thanks to the church being the church this morning.
SIDE NOTE: Looks like the Hawkeye’s got their bounce back. That’s a bummer.
