What happens when you give?


Posted on


"Being friends with people of special needs has always been on my heart. God breathed life into all of us, no matter what our eventual need would be. He created those with special needs to be ministered to and to minister to others. There is not a Sunday that goes by that I don't look into their eyes and see God's miracle.

One Sunday the kids were playing in the room as they normally do. We have shelves of books in the corner, but most of the time they are left untouched. Out of the corner of my eye I noticed one of our friends picking up a book, sitting in the bean bag and looking at the pictures in the book. I was curious, so I walked over - it was a picture book about the life of Jesus. Out of all the books, she choose that one. She too wants to learn about Jesus. He reaches out to all of us in a way that we need Him.*"

When you give, you give JOY!

Through your financial support, our Special Friends Ministry at First Baptist Church Allen shares the joy and the love of Christ.

"Our heart is glad in him, because we trust in his holy name." Psalm 33:21
