There are people that make the ministry a pleasure. People who see a job needing to be done and just roll up their sleeves and get to work. Most of the time they don't get recognized for their efforts, but people miss them when they're not around.
Most churches have this special person. They call him a "jack of all trades" or a "go-to guy" but what he really is is a servant. Most of the time they don't even realize the blessing they have until they don't have it anymore.
He's the guy that shows up at church 15 minutes early to make coffee.
He's the guy that shovels snow and salts the walk even when church isn't in session, just because it needs to be done.
He's the guy that doesn't bat an eyelash when you tell him you need him to go out into 100 degree heat and knock on doors to invite kids to Bible school, he just grabs his keys and heads out the door to do it.
He's the guy that won't just tell you of a dependable mechanic, he'll crack the hood and tell you what's wrong and fix it for you.
He's the guy that helps you move boxes in the pouring rain telling you how much he's going to miss you when you're gone.
She's the lady that will work all day for a "men only" fishing trip to make sure things are done decently and in order.
I believe there's a special place in Heaven for these "angels among us."
Here's to you, Philip & Cherrie Kennedy, Elmer Jeffers, Reese Smith. May God bless you for all you do.
