SarahExperiencing the hope and desire of a church that longs to be a transforming influence in their community has been a blessing. I have learnt a lot of valuable lessons from being part of such a loving and accepting community church as Portage la Prairie here on my journey at CFOT. The key is building relationships with the members of the community. It is important to go into people’s worlds and see what their realities are, which are often completely different than my own. I have learned from the experiences of the people; their spiritual walks and then I have become more compassionate towards their individual needs.

My prayer is that I will continually have a passion for Christ that will drive me to accomplish more for His kingdom here on earth. 2 Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone; the new is here.” We are all new creations, given a new purpose and mission to continue the work Jesus began in the world.

Edward Everett Hale once said:

“I am one, but I am one;
I cannot do everything
But I can do something.
What I can do I ought to do,
And what I ought to do
By God’s grace I will do.
