It's been almost three months since C3 held our "official launch," and every week is still an adventure! There have definitely been challenges. But there have also been amazing moments that reveal lives changing. I have to confess: I'm more than a little biased toward the really great moments, and have seen a few challenges that I'd like to forget. But I won't forget them- and I shouldn't.
Because God is working in both.
"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." -Romans 8:28
We aren't promised that every moment spent after we become Christ followers will be happy and painless. But we are promised that in every one of those moments, our amazing Creator and Redeemer God is working, with our ultimate good in mind.
Like I said, every week is an adventure!
This week, I'd like to ask you to join us in praying for a community-building event that we call "Flight Night." Everyone is invited to join us in the field down the street from the Graham's home (email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for directions) on Sunday night, July 19th- time will be arranged this week. Bring a picnic for you and any guests that will be joining you, and bring anything that flies! Kites, balls, Frisbees, boomerangs, R.C. planes and helicopters- you name it! We're gathering just to hang out and spend time together. Oh, and we're going to do some very cool flight-related things with Diet Coke and Mentos, too.
Please also join us in praying for our overpass ministry. I got to meet a new gentlemen this last week, and am hoping for the opportunity to build a relationship with him- I would really appreciate you focusing some prayer time on this!
Finally, one of our close friends and C3 family member and trustee, Charlie Patchett, lost his father this week. While we are celebrating that he went home to be with his Savior, we are mourning the loss and separation that Charlie, Connie, and the whole family face. Please join us in praying for peace and comfort for the Patchett family.
In Him We Live,
