As One by One celebrates 10 years of ministry, we’re reflecting on some of the larger lessons that God has taught us through serving.

Being at One by One has been a great blessing in my life; more than just coworkers, I consider the staff my friends and family. When I’ve gone through difficult times personally—like the passing of my father in May 2012—I could count on comforting words, hugs, and encouragement to carry on. I don’t have the slightest doubt that I’m where the Lord wants me, and I will be here until He moves me.

I look at myself before I began at One by One and I can see how the Lord has worked in my life. I can see how I’ve grown in compassion, restoration, and reaching those people who are hard to reach through the traditional church. I’ve seen how Love, Mercy, and Godly Forgiveness through your life can effect change even in others even while they’re in the midst of living for themselves.

One by One has been my school where the staff, the kids, the youth, the young adults, and the parents have all taught me to grow in the formation of Christian character. We all constantly have something to learn and something to teach. We have only to be willing.

Estar en One by One ha sido de gran bendición para mi vida, más que un equipo de trabajo los considero amigos, familia. En lo personal he pasado situaciones difíciles (como el fallecimiento de mi papá, Mayo 2012) donde pude contar con esas palabras de consuelo, el abrazo y el ánimo para continuar. No tengo la menor duda en que estoy en el lugar indicado por el Señor hasta el día en que Él me mueva.

Veo antes de One by One y puedo ver como el Señor ha trabajado en mi vida. Puedo ver la compasión, la restauración, el llegar a esas personas difíciles de alcanzar a través de la Iglesia tradicional. Como el Amor, la Piedad y el Perdón de Dios a través de tu vida puede producir un cambio en las personas aún en medio de sus propios estilos de vidas.

One by One ha sido mi escuela donde el Staff, los niños, los adolescentes, los jóvenes y los padres me han enseñado ha crecer en la formación del carácter cristiano. Todos tenemos constantemente algo que aprender y algo que enseñar. Solo debemos estar dispuestos.
