Forging Community

Our Arizona mission team worked together this morning to pull off our annual "Winner Winner BBQ Dinner" fund raiser. It was a success on many fronts including the tremendous generosity of people at Northridge, servant-minded volunteers, and the leadership of my wife.

These events are powerful as they give us a chance to bond as a team with a common objective in mind. When you are going to work together in a foreign culture it's essential to have a training ground to build unity. It's similar to a preseason workout that prepares us for the real work ahead of us. This practice run gets us familiar with each other while we build some sweat equity. It won't effectively prepare us for everything we will face, but it does help to know that we have each other's back when it counts.
