Cowgirls In Action – August 28, 2010

by Kevin on August 29, 2010

Today’s Cowgirl in Action comes from an email that I got from Tammie Schmidt. Read this email that I got from her and notice how the most important things you can do for God and those around you don’t have to be complex or complicated.

Kevin I honestly think you are right. I think the world could use more down to earth Cowboy Ministries and churches. I think Jesus would approve. Often times you have to meet people where they are to minister to them.

Just yesterday I had a wonderful visit from a little girl who was in my classroom last year. Her daddy had gotten into some trouble and was going to have to go to jail for a few months. She was devastated. She couldn’t think, she couldn’t work. Her whole world had come crashing down around her. So I took her into a quiet room and we sat there and wrote a letter to her daddy telling him how much she loved him and would miss him. We then took a picture of her and placed it in the envelope and sealed it. I didn’t do much. But to her it was everything. She came back to visit me and let me know I had made a difference in her life. That’s what Jesus does all the time. Meet people where they are. Have a great day. Your ministry blesses my socks off.

This email was in response to the article entitled The Bar Exam. It’s a call to action to meet people where they are when we minister to them. We shouldn’t expect someone that doesn’t know God to come into a church building in order to hear the Word of God.

Thank you Tammie for your dedication and the example that you have given everyone today.

    Tammie, reading your story made my heart smile and a little warmer. People like you doing God’s work, knock MY socks off. God bless you. Thank you Kevin for having this website. Love you my friend!

    • Thanks Mary!!! It’s this type of ministry that Tammie exhibited that really shows the love of God through us.

        Thats a great story, you never know how much the kittle things matter so much. And by setting this examples you are showing what Gods love can do for other people.

  • I am finally catching up on my reading. Sorry to be late to the conversation. This e-mail is every pastor’s dream. One person connecting with another person for no other reason than to say, “I am here, and I care.” There is no more powerful testimony than that.

    Tammie, I pray that God sends many more young girls you way. And I pray that you will always have time for each one. God bless you!
