This AMP’ed me UP! 7-24-19

Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.” – 1 Timothy 4:12 ESV

In John 13, we see the perfect example of servant leadership. As Jesus washes His disciple’s feet, we see the value He places on each of His friends; even those that would deny and betray Him. And He knew they could do little in return for what He was about to do.

We Love Portales was exactly that. An opportunity to serve our amazing city with the intention of getting nothing in return. Simply because we love Portales. 

We could talk about the numbers, but the truth of the matter is, even if it was only one person that we were able to successfully love on, serve, and show/be Jesus to, that would be enough. But God didn’t stop at one. Because of our church, we got to bless more people than we can possibly imagine. 

Love spread like wildfire this past weekend. Thank you to everyone who took part in We Love Portales. This is what the Church is. This is how we are to shine His light. May His name get all the Glory. 

Feel free to contact me by phone (575-693-5452) or email ( with any questions!

Heavenly Father, thank You for believing in us. Thank You for allowing us to be a part of your glorious plan. I pray that every person involved in We Love Portales, whether with the church or those who were blessed, would come to know You more each and every day. Bless everyone with Your presence above everything else. Shape our hearts to be more like Yours. Help us to see the need for Your love in our everyday lives. We are in awe of You and honored that You would use us to accomplish Your will. May You get all the glory and honor and praise.
In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
