We walk together with the Lord forever - here's an example of putting that phrase to work in a very tangible way.
A few telephone calls. A few bulletin announcements. A few arrangements. A Thrivent Action Grant. God's servants: willing to shop, travel, and serve with a smile, willing to walk with each other and with God forever. How? just doing whatever work needs to be done.
Today at least a dozen men and women of Deer Valley Lutheran in Phoenix, AZ, came to serve as merry maids and do some spring cleaning for the Peridot-Our Savior's Lutheran Elementary School.
AND WHAT A LOT OF WORK they did.
AND WHAT A LOT OF FUN they had!
Take a peek into their day.
YES - the classrooms were dusted!
YES - the windows were cleaned!
YES - the library was ... finally ... organized!
BUT SOMETHING MORE HAPPENED:
Called workers who were weary as the year rolls on were REENERGIZED.
Students who were getting lazy in chores are now INSPIRED.
Christians who were looking to serve are now FILLED WITH SATISFACTION & JOY.
OUR LORD WAS GLORIFIED as His school was tidied up, His name was honored, His servants fellowshipped, laughed and enjoyed ice cream sundaes together - and hearts were again set on fire to teach and to support WELS World Mission Work!
