Caring for a Foster Child at Church

My heart melted. I felt two little arms wrap around my legs in a hug as I stood helping parents get their preschoolers’ belongings at the close of our Mission Friends session.

My heart was so touched because this was her first time to come to Mission Friends, and the first time she had ever seen me. All I knew about her was that she was a foster child and 3 years old. Monica* had come to live with a dedicated family in our church who serves as a foster family.

New Faces, New Disciples

When I saw West Virginia listed on his name tag, I knew immediately who he was: Nathan!

With summer here in full force, maybe it is a good time to ask, “How are you doing?”

Connect with Others to Be a More Effective Leader

The technology we have today is wonderful, isn’t it? When I enter Starbucks, I immediately connect with the wireless system. My car is equipped to sync with my phone so I can retrieve my contact list and make calls.
