Heidi and Joan: Weekly Staff Meeting with GROW


On Monday we were invited to share during the GROW staff’s weekly meeting. Joan shared some thoughts from our morning team time in Romans 12:4-8 on the spiritual gifts God gives us and the beauty of the body of Christ working together. She shared about how she and Heidi have different gifts and how we will need each other as we go through the next two weeks. And how blessed we are to be able to work alongside of each other. Joan also shared how great it is to see the body of Christ come together to help each other from Lititz to Wiang Pa Pao.

Heidi shared how God is working in her this week as she continues to deal with constant back pain. She is accepting God’s timing and answer in this as it is different than she would like. She has been learning to trust Him through this distraction.

We then spent the afternoon planning our next two weeks and are looking forward to our time together.  Thank you for your continued prayers. Wednesday and Thursday we will be leading some training for the GROW staff on team unity and leading children.

For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach;  if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.

-Romans 12:4-8
