Here at Gleanings we meet a lot of people. Each week we are honored to be the destination of someone’s first time visit. There was a retired couple from the state of Washington who heard of Gleanings from friends. There was a family with 4 children that came all the way from Manitoba, Canada. There were 2 teams from a Discipleship Training School in Kona, HI! All here, serving the Lord, experiencing a missions trip – here in California! Being a part of something outside of ourselves, and helping people around the world doesn’t have to mean traveling to a remote country. Everything we do here at Gleanings, has an impact around the globe – eventually – but those of us here are the first to be blessed.
