I love statistics.

In the first 7 months of this year, our little church of 30ish folks on a Sunday–almost half of them under 8 years old!–have individually touched 1619 with acts of kindess.

We’ve done this through things like:

  • Car washes
  • Peeps giveaways
  • Coffee giveaways
  • Free bowling shoe rentals
  • watermelon giveaways
  • A pool party
  • BBQ’s
  • Seed packet giveaways


That’s 53 people for each of us (inluding the 2 year olds!). Yay!

If you count the big events we’ve been part of doing kindness at (95.3’s Listener Appreciation, the Winslow 4th of July, and the Taste of Greater Waterville) you can add another 17,500.

So our little outpost of the Kingdom has impacted more than 18,500,. And that’s being conservative.

Thank you Jesus! Please use these acts of kindness to lead people to you!
