When planning outreaches, we ask “who needs to be shown kindness, NOW?” and “who’s super busy this time of year?” With that in mind, the busiest individuals this month are florists! We will be delivering chocolates, along with our outreach card, to local florist shops and showing them the love of Jesus in a practical way.
After Saturday’s outreach, a member of our church shared a text she received from a friend with me…
Last week sometime someone from your church went and prayed with Donti at Greene’s Florist. They prayed with her because they knew how busy the shop would be and have such a tough week with it being Valentine’s week. After they left, Donti cried for a couple of hours afterwards! It made such an impression on her that she kept saying… I don’t know why i’m so emotional, but no one has ever ever done that in our business before.”
It’s priceless to see the expression of shock- and joy- when those serving realize THEY are being served!
