WMU Monthly News from Betsy Ross
Missions: It’s not just a project; it’s a way of life.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to the many churches, WMU groups and individuals from across our association who helped make the first annual Christian Women’s Job Corps Banquet such a success! Everyone who donated funding, food, decorations, time and talent made the event happen. Our team included young girls all the way to senior adults working together to help make a difference for others and spread the Gospel message.
Thanks are also due for all the WMU groups and ladies who provided desserts on short notice for the Operation Reach event and the Operation Inasmuch meeting. It never ceases to amaze me how quickly everything gets taken care of when you hear of a need.
As we approach Easter and in light of the many tragedies that are dividing our nation and spreading hate, let’s all focus on reaching out to others and letting Christ’s love shine through us. Every day God gives us opportunities to share His love with people around us. How often do we let those opportunities pass by? What excuses do we use? Are we focused on how we will be affected if the interaction is awkward, uncomfortable or we are rejected? We should be thinking about how God can be glorified and that it could mean the gift of everlasting life.
Living a mission lifestyle doesn’t just mean traveling to a faraway place. It means living every day looking for those opportunities right around us to share the Good News. This includes praying for missions near and far along with giving of our time and resources. All of us are different in the talents and gifts we’ve been given but we all have a place in growing God’s kingdom.
In His Service,
Betsy Ross, WMU Director
