A Good Return

Ecclesiastes 4:9 "Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work"

We have begun the team building for our upcoming mission trip in July. 33 individuals gradually being knit together into one team that God will use for His work. Cool. We did several 'team building activities' geared to help us get to know eachother a little better. One activity was to chart the major events of our life on a yard stick - with every half inch equaling 1 year. Some of the younger members had little marked on their stick while some of us older ones (me included) had much labeled. What a powerful visual. A time of reflecting on past events of our lives...but also a time to realize how much time we may have left on this earth. Young or old we all agreed that whatever life may be left, we want it to count. Nothing wasted. Living each day to make a difference. At the end of the session we took some time and broke into small groups of 3 or 4 to pray for eachother as we move forward together by faith. What a blessing to be a part of this team.
