Grace on Grace

Wow, the last 2 months have been a whirlwind for us! We closed on our new home in the middle of October (2023) and moved at the end of the month.  Our home is definitely a fixer-upper, so we had so much work to do before we moved in (and after).  But through it all we have felt so seen and cared for by Jesus and our community.  We have had so many people come and help us rip out carpet, paint, hang doors, load and unload trucks, and fix drains.  We had families bring us burritos when we had no energy to make food and friends who prayed over our home as they served us.  It is truly humbling as the leader of a ministry to let your people take care of you, but wow, we experienced the nearness of Jesus through people and were so grateful.  

One of my favorite moments this month (Nov 2023) was when a neighbor from our old apartment came by to bring the girls a treat and see our new home.  This woman was such a hard neighbor at first and incredibly difficult to get to know.  But over our time there, God broke through barriers and we were able to have a sweet relationship with her and her partner, and share about our ministry in St. Louis.

The picture above is the view from our front porch that looks over our cul-de-sac.  Our street had a block party right around the time we bought our home, and we were able to meet all of our new neighbors as we gathered and ate together in the street.  We are excited to continue building relationships in our new community, and pray that God breaks through as we live life with those around us.

Our church has been meeting as two separate missional communities for the past 2 months, and it has been a huge season of growth, intimacy with the Spirit, and leadership in each of our members.  We have had more people taking leadership responsibilities with humility and courage, and so many stories this month of people hearing God speak throughout their day and learning to go to him in prayer.  We are praising God for this big breakthrough for members in our community!  We also had our first all church gathering at the end of October.  It was an incredibly moving time of ministry and powerful to have everyone together again.

If you are interested in giving to our church, you can use this LINK Because our church is an organic movement, the only costs associated currently are our daily living expenses, small admin costs, and for special events such as learning communities. We are partnered with a nonprofit called Perception Funding, who receives and manages all funds we receive through giving. We would love for you to be a part of what God is doing in St. Louis!
