This week I am taking a moment to thank our people for the attitude of serving God and being the mission of God in Abbeville.  Just this week we had a mission team serving in Belize, a mission team serving in the Henry County jail, a mission team serving in the Nursing Home, a mission team at Celebrate Recovery on Thursday night, a mission team serving in Men's Ministry (Motley Men on Wednesday) and a mission team witnessing for Jesus at the softball fields as we shared fellowship with other congregations in the Abbeville area.  It is truly an honor for me to be part of this church that placed almost 100 different people in ministry just this week (this includes our children's ministry, the Thrift store, the praise team, Boys and Girls Club team, the choir, our Bible Study teachers on Wednesday and Sunday, the ICU Team, and anyone I might have missed).  Think of this in these terms.  We have about 100 people in attendance each Sunday.  While the 100 people out in the world and our community might have been different people (in fact some of the people serving in the ministries above were not even AUMC attendees) it is pretty impressive that we are sending out a number equal to the attendees on Sunday morning.  And I think we can get to the point we are sending over that number.  John Riley calls God the great multiplier.  I think that is manifested in you and your work for Jesus.  Two comments ... keep up the great work ... thank you for being the hands and feet of our Savior!  I am honored to be your pastor!  Randy
