The last couple of months have been filled with reconnections. Through my international travels, I have been able to meet a lot of alumni who are now in different parts of the world. Also, I have been able to reconnect with some alumni who came back to Ann Arbor to visit.
Every time I talk with the alumni, I am encouraged to hear that many of them are still walking faithfully with the Lord and they are serving diligently in their new churches.
It has always been our vision, “to transform lost people into Christ’s disciples who will then transform the world.” Therefore, when I see many of these old HMCC members who are now making an impact in different spheres of society throughout the world, it is truly inspiring.
In my conversations with former members, three questions usually come up: 1) How are things going in Ann Arbor now? 2) What are some new things that God is doing in HMCC? 3) What are some ways to help continue the work of transformation?
My response has always been the same: God is working in great ways to build up His church in spite of who we are.
We are humbled to see many people experience God for the first time as they profess Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior (we have seen more salvations in the last few years than ever before). There have been many people who have encountered God’s healing through prayer and the power of the Holy Spirit (many incredible testimonies of God’s deliverance). Many people are being challenged to live out the Gospel in radical ways so that they can transform the world (people are taking some huge steps of faith to follow God).
With all this happening in spite of our weaknesses, we excited about all the new ventures that God is opening up for us. God has given us the 2020 Vision to accomplish for His glory. I believe that the best is yet to come.
Over the years, I have learned that besides prayer and God’s anointing, there always needs to be 3 things to make things happen: 1) A clear vision; 2) People to carry out the vision; 3) Resources to fund the vision.
As people have been asking how they can help in continuing the work of transformation, I have told them that we need prayer more than anything else. Then secondly, we need resources to carry out the vision of transformation.
Throughout HMCC’s history, there have always been generous people who gave to the vision so that God’s work of transformation can be experienced by others. We are at a point where the needs are greater because there are more people to be reach with the Gospel. I want to personally invite you to join us in the great journey by prayer and by giving.
If you have been blessed and transformed through HMCC, then play a part in future transformation of lives by giving. We have provided an easy way for you to give online. If Jesus was able to multiply fives loaves and two fish to feed thousands, there is no sacrifice that is too small.
