This morning I had the opportunity to work with some really good guys. One of the guys that I went to Utah with a few weeks ago has a heart to serve. He found out about a woman from our church who had just recently been divorced who had to move all of her belongings (and that of her two daughters) to a new house. She had a lot of big things and no way to move them so Mike got a group of 9 guys together and we all went out there and moved her stuff.
I realized this morning that Cheridy and I are really blessed with our family and our home and our business and sometimes it’s really easy to get wrapped up in our own world and our own happiness and forget that other people are struggling and dealing with difficult issues. Spending time with someone like Mike, who regularly serves and helps other people, helped open my eyes and my heart.
One of the things that Mike mentioned is that after going through a divorce, this woman most likely has lost some of her trust in men and to have nine strangers show up at her house and move all her things will hopefully restore some of that faith. I think that’s a big part of Mike’s mission and ministry which I think he’s calling “Jesus on the move” and it was really cool to be a part of that this morning.
While we were moving everything, my friend Dion got a call that he had to rush to the hospital because he was about to have a baby! Him and his wife are adopting and the birth mother went into labor, so we had to unload everything from his car so he could get on the road. Congrats Dion…can’t wait to hear more about it!!
