It was a good semester for Impact.   While there is plenty to share, here were a few key happenings:

The Kaleo Community held our yard sale at the beginning of November and collected over $300 to give to Restoration House of Greater Kansas City. Thank you everyone who donated items, helped us organize the event, and/or bought items!

Some members of our community also celebrated Thanksgiving with friends and neighbors. We had a blast gathering together and great conversations ensued including some good spiritual conversations.

But more than anything I have been excited for how God is using this community to impact lives. As we gathered one Sunday, I asked our group how God is working in and through their lives. I thought I would share just a couple of the responses with you:

“I’m thankful for a community of believers that challenge my faith and make me desire to grow deeper in my walk with God. This community exudes the love of God in so many ways and impacts the lives of many with this love.”

“This community has been such a blessing because it truly is a family of believers. When you join this group, you will always be cared for – and this care is not only a care of a friend, but it is the care of Jesus that shines through. I have learned that Jesus is my true joy, and that He is my real satisfaction in life. I have learned more about God’s goodness and His grace which will always overcome.”

These and the other responses were really encouraging, and God was definitely praised that day!

Thank you to everyone who continues to pray for our ministry.
