Steve and I hosted our first small group meeting on Friday night. 3 people came and a handful of others told us they plan on joining us next time. A good start.
As we shared stories with one another, it stuck us anew the potential global impact of a church plant in a city like New York.
A profile of the group:
- A Scottish med student, in town for a few months doing research. He plans on returning to Scotland to practice medicine.
- A Malaysian med student who isn't sure if she's going to practice in the UK or Malaysia.
- A woman who was born in Argentina, moved to California in her teens, and now is searching for a job that could take her anywhere in the world.
It was great to share our differences while appreciating the community we have through Christ.
Steve and I were also reminded of the transient nature of city life and the sustainability challenges that come with that.
Please pray for this group...that we'll continue to build community... that God will use this group for his purposes...that Steve and I will be wise leaders.
