Life Group Outreach

TLC has started a new outreach program, and I have to be honest and say that I was excited about the opportunity, but yet with my personality I wasn't very excited because I wasn't sure how it would go. Last night, our Life Group went out on the outreach and it was so awesome! Our goal is to reconnect with people that have been to our church but that hasn't made it their home yet. We went to two families homes last night. And at first I felt really stupid because I didn't know if they would accept us or anything and as we stood there talking to this family, they were taken back by the kindness, and they were SOO grateful that we stopped by. We were only there maybe 5 minutes, but at the end we asked if there was anything we could help them pray about, and they wanted us to pray for their family. We stood there, holding hands (not to mention the fact that it was raining! ha!) and we prayed a simple short prayer. I can not even begin to explain what this did to my heart. This families face completely changed and the Mom had a huge smile on her face. I do believe that we made a difference in that family last night. Just to let them know that someone was thinking of them. I'm excited about the next time we do this and can't wait to see what the next outcome will be! :)
