We aren’t always the ones reaching out to others…..often, others are reaching out to us. Romual Jacques, the Youth Pastor in Fev, Haiti where Calvary’s team has been active, is praying for us. I’m sure he isn’t the only person in Fev praying for Calvary, but he is being very intentional in his prayers by signing up on the Calvary Prayer Room Schedule every day this week at 7:00 a.m.! Michael Pitzer, Calvary’s Director of Student Ministries has been mentoring Romual who is new to youth ministry. With Michael in Normal and Romaul in Fev, a mutual relationship of prayer and support has developed.
In our zeal to serve Christ, let us not forget that we are also blessed by those who are ‘supposed to be’ on the receiving end of our ministry. I am friends on Facebook with many of our brothers and sisters in Haiti and it is such a blessing to read their promises to pray for us at Calvary.
Who is our neighbor? Romual would answer, “My brothers and sisters of Calvary UMC, in Normal, Illinois.
