I want to give back!

Debbie* entered the church during our Wends night Bible study with the same story we hear over and over, “Yeah, I used to come to church here. Well, it was when there was another pastor. I used to go to his house.” I could smell alcohol on her breath and started mentally preparing my answer as she continued, “Yeah, well, I’m not going to lie, I just finished dinner and I have been drinking. My family moved away from the neighborhood, and that’s why we haven’t been back. I’m not where I want to be financially…” Her next words were not what I was expecting. “But, this is something I feel like I need to do.”, she held out two $20 bills. I hesitated to take them, but she went on, “This church did a lot for me and my family, and I just feel like this is something I need to do. I know it won’t get me to heaven, but I want to give back. I’m not where I want to be, but my life is better because of this church.” As she walked away, I stood there speechless. So many faces come and go, so many people we reach out to, feed, counsel, and pray with. It’s easy to feel like it’s all for nothing when they disappear. Debbie is just one of several who have come back to Victory Chapel over the last month. Two families that we hadn’t seen for some time are now attending regularly. We thank God for His faithfulness to these hearts. Please continue to pray for us as we work to glorify Him through the ministry of reconciliation.
