We got a $500 check in the mail today from a missionary family.

You read that right. We have a friend that is itinerating right now (traveling the country raising money to head overseas). He told us that his family wanted to bless us as we have taken this step of faith to plant Center City Church in Uptown Charlotte.

I was totally blown away.

I think it’s so amazing that generosity can come in so many forms. We have had everything from a $3 donation from a family in poverty to a $500 check from a family headed to the mission field to $15,000 from one family that loves and believes in us. I am so motivated to work hard and do all I can to make sure that money (no matter the amount) is being invested in good soil.

I thank God for the generosity of so many people. We couldn’t do what we do otherwise.
