The idea of investing a few and slow and steady discipleship really comforts me because sometimes I get overwhelmed by the amount of people that I feel need to be discipled. But today I learned that by investing in a few and making disciples that multiply the kingdom will grow with speed and it’s really encouraging.
I have fallen in love with this group of 7th grade girls that I sponsored at camp this past week and cannot wait to meet with them once a week starting this fall. My prayer is that I will be able to love them and disciple them well so that the kingdom may grow with rapid multiplication.
Also on Day 14 I was given the opportunity to share my story with all of the campers during a main session. I was really nervous at first, but I knew this was something God was really wanting me to do. I had the opportunity to put obedience into practice and share. I’m so thankful I did because through sharing my story the kids really began to open up and connect with me. It has been such a blessing to share about how God has helped me through my anxiety with my friend on Sunday and then with the campers on Monday. God connects us through our stories and a deep fellowship happens when we allow ourselves to open up and share with one another. It’s been so neat to see this up close.
