I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name. - Revelation 3:8 (NIV)
I remember the sound of the gravel under my tires as I drove up the lane to visit my friend Willy. I can still see him waving from his porch — one arm extended and the other leaning on his cane. “What took you so long?” he’d ask.
My small actions canmake a huge difference in someone’s life of faith.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
