Every couple weeks, we ask the same question:
This could be something that happened to you, something you witnessed someone else do, or a story you saw that spoke to your heart. Examples include:
You saw a news story of Christ at work in the world.
You saw someone do something extraordinarily kind for someone else.
Someone came to help you in your time of need in an unexpected way.
You witnessed someone accept Christ as their Savior or be baptized.
Sometimes we can get so wrapped up in our own little world that we fail to look for signs of Christ working in the world around us. This often leads us to believe that Christ isn’t working. I’m hoping that by consistently posing this question, it will remind us to be looking for evidence that Christ is still at work through his people. Some weeks, we may not get any stories. Some weeks, we may get a lot of stories. But I want the opportunity to always be there for you to share stories of how Christ is at work as a way to encourage Christians to stay strong in the faith.
John 13:34-35: [Jesus said] “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
I hope you will join me in sharing your stories! If you have a story and don’t want to wait for the next post, feel free to go back and find the previous post and share your story there!

This past Sunday we had our annual Thanksgiving SoupFest at church. Each year, we have one of our missions partners give us an update on what is going on in their ministry. This year, we had someone from Multiply share with us, and she pointed us to a website that has short videos to encourage prayer for the nations around the world. Each nation has a video to share what it is like to be a Christian there, what struggles they face, and how to pray for them. We watched three videos - France, Saudi Arabia, and Thailand. What really struck me was how different the situations are in each country, yet God knows each situation intimately and he knows exactly what people need in those countries to be able to find him and follow him. If you are interested, the website is https://prayercast.com/index.html. I'm hoping to share more from this website in Witness Wednesdays starting in 2023.
We praise God for keeping us safe as we made the trip to Florida. we had night driving but had no problems.
