Day of Prayer & Service

•July 17, 2011 • Leave a Comment

When we started Because of One, I think our vision was too big, even for us! We did our best to take things one step at a time, and through much prayer and planning, it was unanimous among the Because of One team members that we needed to add a Day of Prayer and Service in addition to our Day of Prayer & Fasting. Our mission is to spread God’s love and share the Good News with others.

If there’s anything we want you to take from this Day of Prayer & Service, it’s that you don’t have to take a day off of work to do something and you don’t have to do something HUGE. The smallest act of kindness can make the biggest difference. Jeremy is constantly “preaching” to us to be faithful in the little things and be faithful wherever we are. So no matter what you have planned for Friday, August 5th, we challenge you all to think outside the box and put your ideas into action whether you’re home for the day, on the road traveling, or stuck in the office all day. It can be anything from paying for the person behind you in a drive thru, to leaving notes of encouragement for all your coworkers, to hosting a food drive or other community event! The sky is the limit and remember, the smallest act of kindness can make the biggest difference.

When I started our new Facebook page, our current group page had 43 members. If each of those members encouraged 1 person to go out and do something for someone else, that’s 86 people out in the world serving. If each of those people encouraged just one person to do the same, that’s 172 people if each of those people does the same, that’s 344 people out in the world serving others! See how simple it is? Never allow yourself to believe that you can’t make a difference! Even the biggest organizations in the world started with just one person!

Message from Adie and a Special Announcement!

Hey everyone!

We would like to thank you all for joining us once again in prayer for Jeremy & Adie’s ministry this past Friday! God did some wonderful things in people and through people that day! One thing he did through me is push me to add a little something to our ministry. Starting this year, we will now have an annual Day of Service and Prayer on August 5th, in addition to our annual Day of Prayer & Fasting. God spoke to me as I prayed for the ministry that He has set before us and prayed for God to just take the wheel & lead this ministry where He wanted it to go. I am SO excited about this opportunity for us to get out in the world & take ACTION! I will have more details in the coming weeks on that.

Hey everyone!!!

Welcome to the brand new Because of One website! As you can see, it’s got a LONG way to go, but we had to get it up & running for you guys! We wanted to have ONE place where everyone could gather, get to know one another, and pray for one another.

Our MySpace and Facebook pages are still live. You will find the links to them on the Links Page.

We also now have a message board! Feel free to jump in & start the conversation!

There are some BIG plans for Because of One in the future…you won’t want to miss it! And coming up, we have our annual Day of Prayer & Fasting for Jeremy and Adie’s Ministry – Friday, February 5th. Hope you all join us!

God bless!
