You'll have to listen to the episode to understand the picture below... which is original, untouched, and authentic! :-)
Hello 200churches followers! This is it, the very last episode in our arsenal of recorded episodes. This is Jeff, and this is my last week with my son Doug in Lincoln, NE! This is our fourth of four weeks doing outpatient therapy. Doug's accident was 8 weeks ago, and his recovery has been tremendous.
This is also episode #99 for Jonny and me. We have LOVED producing these episodes for you, with our sole purpose to provide MINISTRY ENCOURAGEMENT TO PASTORS OF SMALL CHURCHES.
This episode features a missionary who spoke at our church the week that my son entered the hospital. He came to the hospital with one of my elders to visit me that Saturday morning. I was in shock, but not so much that I could not tell him to "take care of the church for me tomorrow!" And, he did. He and Jonny!
I emailed this missionary today (Tuesday morning) and shared with him that we were releasing the second episode, and also about my son Doug's progress. He replied that just this morning, hours before this episode's release, he himself was in the OR for hernia surgery. We're all falling apart! :-) But, you'll really enjoy this episode and hopefully be challenged in some areas relating to how you deal with visiting missionaries.
It is said that "what got you here will not be enough to keep you here." Jonny and I believe this is true for us with the 200churches Podcast. So, expect some changes, expect some new things coming from 200churches in 2015. We're excited. I'm excited to get back to the 200churches World Headquarters with Jonny!
For now, our can of recorded episodes is now empty! Anything you hear after today will need to be created, as it does not yet exist. That is motivating to me though. We get to continue creating digital ministry encouragement from scratch! And we will.
For the first 99 episodes we say thank you to you, our listener, but mostly to Jesus Christ, our Lord, Savior, Brother, Master, and yet still, Friend. Help us Jesus to do this all for you, for your Kingdom, and for the shepherds who serve with you, caring for the sheep.
Continue to lead, and love, your people!
