just returned from Jacksonville FL...a great weekend with a great church. They are a triditional church that is impacting the world...they have a great missions program that literally reaching around the world. Now they are interested in stepping up to invest into the Orange community...Good response to the training and encouragement...Sat we went out with the teens doing the give em the bag outreach 30 teens and adult leaders showed up...we packed 300 bags in 40 min...a record...we took 100 bags out into the commuity and empowered the teens to do the outreach...

one dryclean an Albanian man was stunned that the teens offed him a bag for free...he was so moved he said, here's my card, you tell your people to come here I offer a discount...sometimes a kind deed sparks a kind response...two girls, Jenny and Gabby who are best friends went to another store...they offered the gift to the local shop owner...he was also stunned and asked what was the gift for...they replied we want to thank you for being in our community and we want to show you God's love in a practical way, he was so moved that he had tears in his eyes and said i've live in America for 25 years and no one has ever given me a gift...

after the three services the people from the church understood the concept of sowing and reaping and picked up all the bags to connect to their community...some great stories are filtering back...

it was a good weekend, great encouragement and satisfaction that the Kingdom is expanding...new thoughts for a great church see http://www.christianfamilychapel.com

I'm always encourage when a churh is willing to begin to become an outward focused church
