Isn't it awesome when God takes our small act of obedience and turns it into more than we thought possible?
In February, Linda Stanley @ Leadership Network wrote about Mosaic Central Arkansas Church's food truck court and the great response it was receiving in the South Little Rock area. The church hoped to provide "reasonably priced, good food options to their neighbors and to serve as 'pastors to the community,' not just their church body." The feedback was positive and the church was hopeful that the momentum toward urban renewal would continue to build in the area.
Three months later, the church has added more food trucks, and has a loyal Twitter and Facebook following. On May 1, Mosaic was granted permission by the city to install tables and chairs so that folks can not only gather to receive their food, but also enjoy the fellowship of sharing a meal together with their neighbors in the University Market area.
Banners are now installed marking the University Market and Pastor Mark DeYmaz and his church's commitment to urban renewal in South Little Rock has not wavered, but only strengthened as they move forward with even more exciting plans for the University Market. Check out the details of the Mosaic food truck court here in this article from the Arkansas Times.
Be inspired! Follow the Lord in obedience and stand back amazed as He does "...immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us." (Ephesians 3:20)
