From a young age, I had people in my life who went to church. I even went to Catechism where I studied Jesus' life and who God is, but it never appealed to me because no one explained how it applied to my everyday life. So I gave up on it.
It can get a bit overwhelming. Louis says, “When we get discouraged, we sense God asking, ‘Will you trust me? I’ve promised to build my church. You’re doing your part. Will you trust me to do the rest?’ And then I remind myself that this is not me building the church. It’s God. Church planting is really hard, but we have 100% confidence that we are doing the right thing.”
