Habitat for Humanity is a Christian-based organization that builds and repairs simple, decent and affordable homes for families in need. They have been serving Central Arizona since 1985. Habitat helps families of low and moderate incomes become homeowners by building and partnering in the creation of affordable housing. Today several of us from Mission church volunteered our time to help build a house for the Fuerte family. They have 2 daughters with a child on the way. But they also live in a small run-down two bedroom apartment. It was a blessing to work alongside my friends and be a blessing to this family in need.

I had a chance to use my gifts to be a blessing this morning. There were some families in town going through a week-long teaching called Soma School (mainly for church planters) at both Missio Dei Communities and Redemption church. They had some sign up sheets available for people to make breakfast for them. I love to cook, so I fired up a bunch of omelettes for them. After delivering them, I sat and had a wonderful conversation with one of the leaders on counseling in the church. I’m always thankful to use my gifts to bless others.

Today I joined the Extreme team for Second Saturday and helped them clean up a yard of weeds of an old veteran that was having surgery. Our miracle team did an amazing job of cleaning things up in his backyard as he was facing fines from the city. The cool thing was that his son was watching the place for him and he is a Buddhist priest. We were able to pray for him and his father afterwards.

Pastor Chris talked yesterday about Jonah and how he ran away from God. Eventually he gave in and preached to Nineveh and many lives were saved. God blessed Jonah by saving him from the whale and used him to be a blessing to others. God has used many people in my church to be a blessing to me by enriching my life with the gospel. One of the ways God has blessed me is with a home. So tonight I offered to host our missional community by cooking up some appetizers and helping lead Bible study. I am thankful this Thanksgiving week for friends, family, a car and a home and thankful I can be a blessing to others.

This passage inspired me tonight in our study – Romans 6:20-23
