On the way home I was really picking my brain to come up with ways that we can begin reaching out to people in our mission field. But, I was also thinking, there's a need here to help people grow in their relationship with Christ and learn to be missional with me. So I was caught in this tension between reaching currently unknown people and developing the people that we do know. Both are important and need to be done. I thought, "Where do I start?"
Then, in a hand-to-forehead moment, I thought, "Prayer." We need to come together and pray. That's where we start, with prayer. So, Step 1 is now: Recruit a Prayer Team. (Now I just have to define what that is. Fortunately I have some good resources on that if I can just find which box they're packed in.)
