I was reading this morning on a blog of one of our Missionaries. She shared a story of how she has made banana bread and used it to open the door to talk to people about Jesus and coming to their church. This post really blessed me and challenged me both. You can read her whole post at
As I was reading her post, I was thinking of who I could maybe do this for. Not just for witnessing to them but to maybe encourage them, let them know someone cared, missed them, thought of them etc.Don't like banana bread, don't bake it, so make a cake, cookies, muffins, it doesn't matter what you take, just that you let them know someone cares.
Someone cares, but do they know? I am off to bake and make my list. I challenge you to do the same, who can you invite to church, encourage, let them know they are missed, let them know someone cares?
