I mean if you told me this would happen last week, I would have told you, “Ummm, I doubt it!”
And I would have said it that way to be nice.
But it simply happened.
We moved into out new church in a day!
Sunday night after service, about 100 or more volunteers stayed around, packed everything up, drove to the new campus, and unloaded it into mountainous piles.
I walked around in awe at how quickly that part happened and wondered how many weeks it would take us to sort out the overwhelming pile of boxes.
Never in a million years would I have thought – about one day!!!!!!
Now, don’t get me wrong. We have a long road ahead of us and everything is not completely neat and tidy.
BUT – about 100 volunteers worked, sweated, moved, carried and got the boxes where they were supposed to go and started unloading them.
I KNEW that I belonged to one AMAZING church. It is just such a pleasure to be blown away again TWO DAYS IN A ROW by JUST how amazing it is!
When many of us come together, we can be so effective!
Volunteers were showing up with their mowers and cutting what seemed to be an ocean of grass! It now looks like a golf course. BEAUTIFUL!
And I mentioned out loud that the gym floor was dirty and the baseboards needed a good cleaning. An hour later I walked through and the small of Lysol was pungent in the air with a clean floor and sparkling baseboards!!!! (HOW do I get THAT to happen at my house????) LOL
The love each volunteer has shown for their church and overhearing the comments about being excited about reaching our city has lit me on fire.
To those people giving of themselves like this, I just want to say thank you.
Thank you for charging me up.
Thank you for loving your city.
Thank you for loving your church.
Thank you for being you.
