Blown Away by the Body!
Hope House allows for a unique opportunity of self-discovery. Those who have chosen to embrace its culture – one of community and real crazy love – have experienced the joy of being used by God, in both expected and unexpected ways. Each and every person involved brings with them a unique set of talents that we love to put to good use, as well as an openness in allowing God to stretch them and show them yet undiscovered gifts that may have been inside of them all along.
That’s the beauty of what happens when you serve the Lord!!! The simple step of joining with a ministry and helping to shine Jesus’ light, even in the smallest of ways, allows us to see much clearer all that God has to offer, whether to us personally, to someone we are serving, or to us as a community as a whole. That’s what makes this idea of community and being a part of the body of Christ so powerful. God has work ready for us to do. He has given us the ability and resources to carry out the plan. All we have to do is trust that He will be with us as we go.
The body of Christ has an amazing amount of gifts and talents. We at Hope House see what can happen on a regular basis when a small amount of people decide to throw down for Jesus in a way that is truly their own. So we want to say thank you for bringing your unique gift, offering your time, praying, supporting financially, loving our kids, and even swinging a hammer. We honor and appreciate each offering, as all of them are crucial to the work we strive to do.
This summer especially would not have been possible without all of our amazing volunteers and partners. In their time here, whether an afternoon, a week, or a summer, these generous people have used their gifts to not only bless the neighborhood around Hope House, but to forever impact God’s Kingdom. Again, we cannot thank you each enough for coming alongside us in all the ways you do.
