Wow, we are nearing the end of 2017, the year seemed to fly by in a flash! I hope as you look back over your own personal year you have seen evidence of God’s active participation and intervention in your life. I have kept a personal journal for 14 years and I am always amazed as I flip through the pages, at the end of each year, the many ways that God worked in my life that year.
For Maple Run, I think about the many ways that God has blessed His church. I am sure there are far more than those I mention here, please feel free to add more.
- Multiple workers for God’s kingdom went on Missions trips to:
- Give Kids the World
- Growth in the # of families we serve at the Friends Closet and at the Breakfast
- Growth in outreach through work that Brian and many others do in Grant County
- Logansport church continues to grow and thrive
- Our Youth Group able to express their faith with friends and family in and out of our church
- New Ministry, Embrace, started this fall
- Fantastic Fundraiser for assisting Rosman’s with medical bills
- Apple Pie Day experienced more volunteers helping than ever before. We have volunteers that come just for that day. What an outreach and mission fundraiser.
- New families coming and being active in the workings of Maple Run
- God’s intervention with Chris’s sister being a perfect match for his bone marrow transplant
