When I walked into my office this morning, I was greeted by this large basket of goodies and helpful books awaiting me on my desk. A letter was inside, telling me it was from "Empty Arms, A Ministry of First Baptist Church of Center, TX." The letter describes how it is for parents who have lost a child to death, coming specifically from Grace Sunday School Class, who "have experienced the loss of children and grandchildren."
I was touched by their kindness and grace, but was also thinking of what a great example this is of a missional ministry. Based on the letter that came with it, it is something the church sends out beyond just church members who have lost a child.
This is just one of many missional ministries Jinny and I have been on the receiving end of in the last 5 weeks. I'll be posting on some others, as they are no doubt making a kingdom impact.
