Story City Day 4

By: Bronson Stewart


Today our week in LA officially wrapped up. It was an incredible time walking the neighborhoods of an enormous, famous, fast paced, truly unique, lost city. The interactions with its residents were numerous and each memorable in their own right. The work that Story City Church has in front of it is huge and the opportunities to spread the Gospel literally exist on every street corner.

I am very thankful for the team that was able to come. I am very thankful for the prayer and financial support of Englewood that is able to make this trip possible. I am thankful for the work that the Lord has done and will continue to do at through Matt, Tyler, and Craig. The road blocks and challenges they and their families face are large and they need us to lift them up in prayer and appreciate them for their missional service.

I’m taking back a challenge to be as bold, work as hard, to trust that God is as mighty in Medina as He is in LA. I’m motivated to work as hard and preach as boldly to people I see every week as I did to people I’ll never see again.

As I reflect on the week and what I’ll carry back to TN, I’ll remember ALL miles we walked, dozens of very interesting conversations we had, the 1000’s of flyers and post cards we distributed, the 100’s of home security cameras we must have appeared on, but ultimately I’m taking back a thankfulness for what God is doing in our community, in our church, and with our people. I’m taking back a challenge to be as bold, work as hard, to trust that God is as mighty in Medina as He is in LA. I’m motivated to work as hard and preach as boldly to people I see every week as I did to people I’ll never see again. I’m motivated to push even harder to see the lost get found in our community and I can’t wait to be back home as we take the every day message of Jesus to those we share life with.
