David Livingstone, a pioneer in African mission’s said, “Fear God and work hard.” This admonition spoken two centuries ago, is an apt description of what has been going on at The Inn this year. In the first quarter of 2014, we have managed more activity than we engaged in during the entire year of 2012! Regardless of the political climate or the state of the economy, God’s Kingdom is always expanding, always bringing hope and healing in Christ to those who will receive Him.
This good news brings people to our door each week who long for peace and direction, and God faithfully gives it. He gave us our assignment in Matthew 5:14-16:
“…You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand – shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.” (MSG)
Our summer programs are coming up, and we hope you will read about and consider joining us for them. If you can’t join us here on campus, we invite you to “join us” with your generous financial gift that will help support us in achieving our mission. We need your help to keep this momentum going strong as we impact more people than ever before!
May you continue to be blessed as you bring out the God-colors in your part of the world.
Shining with you,
The INN Staff
