Praying With Hands and Feet

June 22, 2012 0 comments

Almost one year ago, the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust granted SHC the seed money to open a second clinic site, with particular emphasis on immigrants and refugees.  With each week this spring, we have moved closer to Opening Day.  We have seen God provide furniture, computers, funding, labor, and new staff.  When I've introduced these new colleagues to our volunteers, faces have lit up with excitement and I've explained, "We've been praying for you--we just didn't know who you were!"

After All Saints Church graciously partnered with us for clinic space and the renovations began, one SHC staff member developed a habit of dropping by the building when it was empty, both to see the progress but also to pray over the space.  It was a sweet time to dream about seeing God work in this place for healing and reconciliation and life in His name.  But this week, I realized those quiet prayer times are almost over: it is time now for plumbing, moving, cleaning, and ultimately seeing patients!  

We are privileged to be servants of Christ in this work.  Thanks to each one of you who has cleaned, prayed, given, encouraged, and volunteered.  We need you (at two clinics :). 

"And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.  Therefore, since through God's mercy we have this ministry, we do not lose heart."  II Corinthians 3:18-4:1
