As parents, Steve and I were very blessed by our family’s county fair ministry because it wasn’t our project but our children’s. They are the ones who pursued getting a booth of our own this year. They paid for everything, and it was costly considering the booth fees, banner, coupons, balloons, face paint, tracts, and candy. They invested their time planning, practicing, praying, and being at the fair. Steve and I were merely willing helpers working with the ministry team of our adult children.
Many of you are in the trenches with your young children. It is hard for you to picture a day when your children would be leading your family in ministry, with you as the helpers not the ones in charge. May we encourage you to stand steadfast and persevere. “And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.” Galatians 6:9
Trusting in Jesus,
“I have no greater joy than to hear
that my children walk in truth.” 3 John 1:4
