God is on the move. Alleluia! Today we received kind words and affirmation here in the church office – all the way from New Jersey. We are pleased to share this with you:
Dear St. Matthew,
Somewhere I heard of your temporary housing ministry. I finally got around to finding your address and see it looks like ya have a youth program. Our church has neither, but you need encouragement to keep doing what you are doing….blessings on your ministry. (donation enclosed for our Transitional Housing Ministry and ELCA Youth Gathering.)
How awesome is that? God is moving through people we have never met – but there may be a connection to a member or friend of St. Matthew somehow. We may never know, but understand that seeds are being planted that bear good fruit. Our ministries touch lives in Christ’s name when we love God and love others. Amen.
