James turned eight last week. His birthday always makes me feel reflective and thankful for how far he’s come. This year we decided to celebrate by inviting his special-needs classmates over along with a couple families from the church we are attending.
As we plant Journey Church, we want to be intentional about inviting and including special-needs families. One family from his class was able to attend and we made connections with two other families who couldn’t come, but we got to know better just by inviting them. We’re already talking about a Halloween party and a Christmas party with James’s class and hopefully the special-needs classes that are older and younger than his.
Please pray with us for the families we are connecting with! We know God has placed us exactly where we are for a purpose and the families we’re meeting are our mission.
