When Project Lost Sheep was starting, I asked my friends to join me in helping reach out to children. Among them was my life long friend, Janet Newman, who was Secretary of the Board for many years.
Janet sparkled when she was well and she understood my passion for helping the children, although she had none herself. Janet liked to write beautiful cards to people and did phone work for us as needed. Jesus understands and feels our human emotions of loss. Jesus wept at the tomb of his friend, Lazarus. And then, Jesus called him back to life.
We can weep now, but joy comes in the morning, because we will see our believing friends again on the other side. If you are starting a Project Lost Sheep group in your city, talk to your friends. Urge them to join you in reaching the children before they go into drugs and gangs. Friends can become even closer as they have a mission to the lost.
Don't wait. God doesn't count numbers: he counts hearts. A few adults with united hearts can with God reach a community.
