Laboring to Make a Difference

Last night we gathered in the home of the
missionary couple who is laboring to plant a church
in the Salt Lake Valley.

We brought all the CBF information,
freebies, mints, and other literature
to stuff in bags for the university students next week.

We will be given a table at Club Fair at Utah Valley University
where students can meet us and find out
what Campus Bible Fellowship is.

In no time at all the men had stuffed all the bags,
and we began another important project. 

These sweet peas come to the Bible study
(church plant) in Herriman, Utah every Sunday.

They are bright children and eager to learn,
so materials have been purchased to
include them in the Bible teaching each Sunday. 

Felt flannel graph figures with vibrant colors
came in sheets that needed to be cut apart.

All six adults grabbed a pair of scissors
to cut each visual that the children will get to see
in their Bible lesson.

It was fun to labor with the entire 'congregation',
and the guys were good sports about doing
a work that might be considered best left to the women.

How grateful we are to have brothers and sisters in Christ
who labor in love along side of us in the campus ministry.
Even stuffing bags is a big help.

How grateful we are to labor with them in planting a church
in a very needy place.

Together, by God's grace, we can make a difference.


  1. I didn't know they even used flannel graph any more, but those look like a colorful update from the ones I saw as a kid. What sweet kids!

  2. I recognize those flannel figures! I think they might be the very same ones I used when I homeschooled Elsbeth and Ethan! (Or very much like them anyway.) Mine were from a company called Betty Luken Felts. I still have them and Elsbeth has requested to take them to S. Korea to use with our grandchildren!

    1. Yes, the same flannel figures and company. Great tools!
