Recently a youth mission team (112 youth plus sponsors) from the Texas Central Conference, stayed in our church while doing a week of work and outreach throughout community. (Very similar to our Oklahoma Youth Force program.) The Trustees, staff, and I would like to thank them for their cooperative spirit in the use of our facility and for the positive witness they shared with our community. However, they also sent a special word of thanks to us. It reads as follows: "Kay, a great big thanks to you and the wonderful people at Sapulpa UMC. Throughout the week you exhibited Radical Hospitality at its finest!!! Thank you so much for opening the doors to us and for putting up with us throughout the week. You blessed us beyond words... I hope and pray we got everything put back in order. Please pass along our heartfelt thanks to Pastor Allen, Paul and the rest of the congregation. Grace and Peace, Pastor Steve." I'm so glad that the feelings were mutual. What a joy it is when we can work together to further the kingdom of God!
