Our 10×20 storage unit that we recently leased is the start of dream God has bloomed from a place of brokenness.
Honestly though, it’s been there a while.
For me, it grew as I saw my pastor, in the church I grew up in, buy a yellow truck and turn it in to a mobile kids ministry so many years ago, a ministry I loved being a part of and still goes on. It grew as I helped a pastor work on a field so that the church could bless a community in multiple ways who had a history marked by deep tragedy. It grew even more as I oversaw the turkey truck filled with hundreds of turkeys as part of a pastor’s vision to give thanksgiving boxes to hundreds of families in need. It grew as I worked with a camp that ministered to foster kids, some so broken, it left us in tears.
For Heather, it grew as she worked with kids. It grew as she studied to teach and continued to grow as God called her to ministry, specifically kids ministry. It continued to grow as she ministered to so many kids with special needs, giving them a safe space to worship Jesus. It grew even more when she led a camp that ministered to foster kids. (The very camp I asked her about over Facebook Messenger, just so I could start talking to her, but that’s another story.) It grew as she began to teach and work with kids day in and day out in local school district.
It grew as our families taught us to love others, pray for others, and care for one another. They modeled this to us so well.
In the last couple of years, it has blossomed from a place of brokenness. Brokenness born out of loss and pain: Pain of infertility, pain of miscarriage, pain from sadness.
It began however, in the words of Jesus when He taught the church to love the least of these, the poor, the broken and the hurting. I think He says it best in Matthew 25:40 ‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.’ Jesus taught us, when we care for the broken, it is as if we are caring for Him. It’s a core value of following Jesus.
In the soil of this brokenness God has been blooming a desire to minister to others, to Love Vacaville.
