Definitions of Success
Eric and I have been talking about success this week. What does it mean for us to be successful in our work with the homeless? Has the Homeless Task Force been successful this year? Have we been successful even if no one has gotten off of the streets lately because of our efforts?
The answer is a resounding "yes"! Here is what we have seen God doing in our midst. We are seeing more Christians from Bellflower intentionally building relationships with our homeless neighbors. Every week we are witnessing the truth of the Gospel, that God has reaches out to us in the midst of our brokenness, calling us away from paths of destruction into relationship with him. He has divinely mobilized his people in Bellflower to be his hands and feet to these our homeless neighbors that he loves. That is success.
