FHL Week Begins: Press Release July 24, 2016


I am so blessed to be able to work with you in our effort to engage and to involve the community through projects and outreaches during FHL Week. Everyone has done a wonderful job!

Even before the projects started, we already reached our goal – to connect with one another and to meet new friends. We have answered the question: “What would our neighborhoods look like if we could say, The Kingdom of God was here?”

I know everyone is working hard but if your project next week did not go as you have planned, don’t sweat it. Keep in mind that we already expanded and deepened our relationship with our community through our regular interactions at the planning meetings and in canvassing the neighborhoods. It’s already a breakthrough!

Let’s go out there to demonstrate the tangible expression of God’s love to everyone!
