This past Thursday was anything but “Throwback Thursday” for the Grace Falls family as a small group of our caring supporters came to visit and to learn of the progress of our ministry in Atlantic County.
Members from the North American Mission Board’s Send North America staff from Pennsylvania, including our ministry mentor Rev. Barry Whitworth of the Baptist Resource Network, as well as Senior Pastor Ken Whitten and Missions Pastor Ray Sanabria from our “sending church,” Idlewild Baptist, in Lutz Florida.
We wanted them to learn of all of the amazing experiences we have had since we arrived last July, but their time was limited, so Pastor Buff invited four people from the Grace Falls fellowship to share with our guests about their personal experiences and impression of the ministry of Grace Falls.
Each person shared the background of their personal, and sometimes challenging, experiences, yet the common theme to their stories was that they are now experiencing a growing, personal relationship with Jesus Christ!
As I listened the story of each one, I realized how privileged I am to be a part of this group of believers who are eager to grow spiritually and boldly share of their experiences with others! This is the true example of discipleship – Disciples who make disciples!
