Our church continues to amaze and encourage me. In February, Blake and I took a tour of Sunday school classes–thanking them for their support so far, and asking if individuals or classes would be willing to pledge to our monthly support. Since then, two classes have pledged and two more have invited us to their classes to give us money from special offerings they took up. We’re constantly overwhelmed by the generosity and graciousness of our church family and I want to share what was written in the card that accompanied the donation we received this past Sunday.
“At our age, we are not able to help with the yard sale. We look for J for Jesus dollars when we shop. Our dollars are brought to Sunday School (and dedicated) to Missions. The ones we found these last two months, we are dedicating to your mission work in Chile. Our prayers for your and your work on the mission field.”
We were both so touched by their thoughtfulness and creativity with how they take up missions money. I’ve always known that dollar bills have letters and numbers on them, but never stopped to pay attention. From now on, every time I see a “J,” I will think of this Sunday School class and their heart for missions.
