With 11 attendees representing 4 churches –three being from Massachusetts churches – we prayed together, had a teaching on leadership from Linda Graves, shared a healthy continental style breakfast, and stories not only about the ministries — but also of amazing weight loss and transformed lives. It was so clear how His hand is all over First Place and all were blessed by that. The group wants to get together regularly, so a seed has been planted. We have received feedback that people were encouraged, inspired, and that it initiated area leader fellowship.
It was such a wonderful team effort. I appreciate Marilyn’s work in seeking out First Place people and initiating the process to make the dream of a New England Area Leader meeting a reality! I am also thankful for Vicki Heath and Kathlee Coleman for help with the agenda. It is so exciting to see First Place growing in New England! Your continued prayers are most appreciated as God calls us together!
Just as there are many parts to our bodies, so it is with Christ’s body. We are all parts of it, and it takes every one of us to make it complete, for we each have different work to do…Romans 12:4 TLB
