For some time now we have been talking about the need for “MORE ROOM” at Life House Texarkana. Someone has said, “Dream Big” and so that is what we’ve done. We are praying that God will make a way to pour a large concrete slab next door to our present building and as soon as we can put a SIMPLE METAL BUILDING – the interior being open except for bathrooms. One my long time friends called me last week and wanted to help and issued a challenge for Life House Family and Friends —— He offered to MATCH EVERY DOLLAR GIVEN — ABOVE our tithes up to $10,000!!!! We are NOT TO USE OUR TITHES – those belong to the Lord but rather give what we can ABOVE our tithes and watch God bless. I shared the challenge this morning and $1,645.00 was given —– what that means is we are at $3,200.00 already! AGAIN — for every penny given – it’s doubled! $1.00 becomes $2.00 — $5.00 becomes $10.00 (YOU GET THE PICTURE!). Join us in praying that we can reach this great goal and pray that God will provide more room so we can reach, teach, disciple and more all who comes our way!! THANKS FOR PRAYING!!!!
When God called us to begin Life House Texarkana it was with the knowledge that we were to pour ourselves in the neighborhood. We were not to stay in our building and wait on people to come to us. We were to MEET NEEDS head on and let the community and world know that we love them and that JESUS LOVES them too. I never envisioned a time when our church would grow to be on the verge of becoming a “church that never sleeps”. There are activities, ministries and outreaches in the LH Texarkana building almost seven days a week – most weeks. Sometimes day and night. Our goal is to be present in the lives of the community and seek to make a difference. Whether it’s youth ministries, children’s ministries, feeding, clothing, life groups, recovery groups or just being available to counsel or help those who drop by. Pray for us — there are many needs and few workers —- pray for MORE dedicated, sold out workers who want to put their hand to the plow and not look back!
I’m excited at all that God is doing and is about to do! Pray!
