Serving God Together

“ The family that prays together, stays together.”  But what about the family that serves together?  They get extra special blessings, not just in the good time they have working with each other, but also in knowing that they have made a difference in the Kingdom of God.

     We had a tractor trailer of Spanish literature to unload, and then reload with hospital mattresses, Bibles, and medical clinic furniture. It’s not ever easy to get volunteers to do this difficult work, especially when scheduling is delayed due to winter storms.  One of our weekly volunteers, Gordon Batey, was willing to direct this job, and even recruited his family to help.  We had 3  generations of Bateys helping...his daughter, son-in-law and 2 granddaughters!  Two of our other weekly volunteers, Vernon Browning and Dave Snyder, joined us as well as a friend from the community.

   With all this help the job was done by noon.  What could have been an overwhelming task was completed, and the truck was sent on its way to bless ministries in Mexico and south Texas.

     How about your family?  Have you considered what you can do as a family together to make a difference in God’s Kingdom?  Maybe you can come here to ETS to help us or you can approach your church leaders and find a ministry to serve that is closer to home.  You will be blessed as you and your family work together in service to the Lord.
