"On Saturday, we sent out (missional) groups from New Life Church in Gurnee to serve the residents of Park City. A resident saw us cleaning their bike paths, was curious, and called an alderwoman to find out what was going on. The alderwoman, who "coincidently" attends our church occasionally because of our previous engagement through ShareFest, informed her about what we were up to - simply demonstrating the love of Christ to neighbors. The resident was so touched she wrote a check to Life Church for $100 and gave it to the alderwoman who came today and gave it to me. This is getting fun!"
