Over time one or more small group member may have a crisis in their life. When a small group comes together to support the person in crisis, this is when we see the power of God working through us.
Once in my women’s group, one pregnant member was on a business trip in another state. While away from home, she delivered the baby prematurely. The baby was too critical to be flown home to their state. As a result, our friend had to stay out of state quite a while to stay near the baby. As you can imagine this was difficult for her husband and other child who had to stay here in California.
Our small group talked with her husband to see how we might help. It was decided that meals might assist her husband. We each took turns preparing meals to take to our friend’s family while she was out of state. This really blessed my friend by knowing her family was being cared for in her absence.
This is one example of how a group can help during a crisis.
