Our next step, Lord willing, is to launch two new communities (small group/Bible studies) at the end of the month in the Pioneer Square district of downtown as well as a neighborhood right outside of downtown called West Seattle. At this point our communities have been forming around geographical locations so we'll be working to build up the Pioneer Square community. God has given us many new friendships in this neighborhood so we're expectant for the potential gospel reach this community will have. God be praised!
One important lesson God has continued to teach us during this time is how utterly important it is to drink from Jesus (John 4:14). He is completely steady and true even when everything is vacillating around us. There have been times when we've wanted to throw our hands in the air and give up, but those were simply a challenge to trust in God's sovereign, good plan for us and this church. He is an eternal source of living water that will never dry up and will always satisfy; come to the well and drink from Jesus.
