Vineyard Gilbert has had the tradition of bringing in a “Heart for the Nations” offering each Fall near Thanksgiving, which is distributed to the various missions and missionaries that the church has chosen to support. This has been a significant opportunity for a church the size we are. While we do faithfully send that financial support monthly, we haven’t matched the financial support with the kind of prayer and practical support we would like. There have been times when we have made visits to our workers in the past, and we have invited them to speak to us when here in town. But we can do more! We can be more closely connected to them, find out their joys and sorrows, pray for them with more insight and discernment, and provide for them a soft and friendly landing when they come back to Arizona. We can build into their joy!
