Mission Bite #42: Unexpected church assets

"One Sunday, the translator I had scheduled for church informed me that he would be unavailable. I was panicking. When I arrived, the congregation told me that Chumcheath would translate for me. I had not heard Chumcheath speak English before, so I was a little worried. However, Chumcheath did a terrific job. I was very energized by this experience, seeing the church use its own assets to solve a problem. I helped someone participate more fully in the edification of the body of Christ. When I brought that need to the church, someone stepped up in a way they hadn't been asked to before, and the church has been stronger since then as a result."
