Unleash: Serving with Chets Women and World Relief

I recently had the opportunity to participate in a service project led by the Unleash team of the Chets Women Ministry. I was on a team of four ladies and we had the pleasure of setting up an apartment for a family moving here from Burma. This family has suffered from persecution for their faith in Christ and had been living in a refugee camp in Thailand for 10 years. Chets Women partnered with World Relief for the opportunity to bless this family. Items were generously donated by women of Chets Creek Church that also wanted to share in blessing this family. Upon arriving at the apartment and unloading all of the donated items, I was overwhelmed to see how much was so generously donated! It was awesome to see that this family would have everything they need to begin their new lives here. After sorting all of the items, we then got to work on setting everything up in the proper rooms and places. We could definitely see God’s hand in this as everything came together.  There were items donated from many different people, but somehow it all worked together perfectly. We concluded our time there by praying for the family and praying over the apartment.

It was such a blessing to join with these women and play a role in what God is doing in the lives of this Burmese family. I have been praying about what my spiritual gift is and where the Lord wants me to serve. I have been praying to have a “yes” heart for wherever God is leading me, taking small steps of faith because I know that Jesus has said whoever has been faithful with little, can be trusted with much. However, while I have been praying for God to show me “the big picture,” I must not forget that I need to seek Him. I cannot forget that it’s not about what I can do for God, but it’s about knowing Him better. I left this service opportunity praising God that He allowed me to be a part of something special that day, but knowing that it’s not about me…it’s about Him. I would also like to encourage any women out there who are not sure where or how to serve, to trust God and say yes to an opportunity that comes their way. Continue to seek Him and his kingdom first!
