God doesn’t want His people hiding behind the walls of church buildings. They are to be out in the public arena. They are sent into the world just like Jesus was sent into the world on God’s mission (John 17:18, 20:21). Missions is everyone, everywhere, all the time.
Mat 5:14-16 MSG “Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. 15 If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. 16 Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand–shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.
Ugo and Amy Nwagwu and Monica Angeles who are all members of Covenant Harvest Church in Pittsburg KS had a unique opportunity to be on the popular HGTV show “House Hunters.” For those that know this show they don’t usually feature smaller towns. When they heard the story of Ugo and Amy they decided to feature them buying a home in Pittsburg. It just so happens Monica Angeles was their realtor. What a great opportunity to be in the public eye.
Pray that God will give them all several opportunities because of the show to share God’s story that brought them together in Pittsburg KS. You can watch the episode below.
