PASTOR'S ARTICLE

Ashford's Houston Mission Team

What a great week we had serving Jesus in Houston, TX! Pictured is our team of 21 awesome servants who shared the love of Jesus all week long! Our new friend Justin, a representative of the mission partner we worked with, inspired us all with a devotional on Matthew 25 when Jesus called us to care for "the least of these." That is exactly what we did throughout the Houston area.

 

We are so thankful for the Ashford family and how everyone supported us so generously so that we could go on this mission trip. Here are some of the highlights from our trip:

 

- 11,210 meals prepared at Houston Food Bank

- More than 700 of the Lord's people were served lunch and dinner at Loaves and Fishes soup kitchen 

- Tending a community garden at a local church

- Re-striping a local church parking lot to meet insurance guidelines

- Demolition to prepare for enhancement of local church children's ministry space

- Distributing two weeks of groceries for more than 350 families 

- Fun excursions to Houston Space Center, Kemah Boardwalk, Galveston

 

More than these highlights, I was so blessed to see our teenagers grow in confidence in the Lord and themselves and for us all to experience the joy of serving Jesus together. And this pastor is so proud because not once did our students complain - even in the brutal Texas heat! Last but not least, a special thank you to the adult leaders who each brought their individual talents to contribute to the Lord's mission and invested in these kids' lives. 

 

I'm already looking forward to the next trip!

Pastor Robert
