I love the progression of John 3:16-17. God LOVED the world so God SENT His Son into the world. It's easy to say you love someone from a distance, but true love always shows up! In the inner city of San Francisco, whoever SHOWS UP wins the battle of influence. If we don't mobilize love and show up, who will?
Mobilize Love was launched on September 23, 2017. Initially, our plan was to launch in December, but a text from a friend prompted us to stop over-thinking the launch and just SHOW UP! On 9/23/17, 18 volunteers fed 100 people, gave 25 haircuts, shared the Gospel with 30 children, and signed up 135 families for Christmas toys. We don't despise the days of small beginnings, because big fruit often comes from small seeds.
I'm convinced, now more than ever, in a volatile world where tragedy can strike communities and cities at any given second, we are called to be ready to SHOW UP! We exist to mobilize love!
This holiday season, I ask that you remember to stay connected to Mobilize Love. The two biggest things to communicate at this time are:
- VOLUNTEER - Two holiday outreaches: Thanksgiving - 11/23 & Christmas - 12/23
- VISION - What's most important right now? What is the next step? What are the long-term goals?
Thank you to all the volunteers and donors who have helped launched Mobilize Love, so many children and families will be blessed because of your support!
