Well we need more of this kind of missionary work

Coming home yesterday, in the rain, I spotted a gang of Asian kids on the corner. This means one thing, the Korean Protestants are trying to figure out what good they can do for the community. That day’s good deed, pulling out weeds and grass from the sidewalk and street gutters. The did a pretty good job on the corner. Ah, showing the love of Christ, to his people, through weed pulling.
I’m not really making fun of them. It’s just that their missionary work in the neighborhood seems (to me anyway) directionless. Some churches in the area have various programs of childcare, breakfasts, free clothing, Summer Bible activities, etc. that they are known for and do regularly. I’m just having trouble figuring out what’s their thing.
