From a Knox County Men's volunteer sharing about his Team 3 class. Team 3 is comprised of men who have completed one semester at Knox County and stay on helpers and students for an extra semester(s).
I think I've been encouraged (given courage to continue) by the Knowing God class as I have been by any class. There have been some profound transformations in the men of this class. From hopeless to encouraged by answered prayers. From brokenhearted to a peaceful acceptance of the Father's will. In the words of Jesus, "Nevertheless, not my will but Your will be done." From resentful, angry and "leave me alone" to hugging their brothers in Christ and expressing the love of and for Christ with tears of sadness and joy.
The class, Team 3, have become helpful and encouraging mentors to the men in their first semester. Sometimes we as facilitators may wonder if it's worth it. It's times like this semester that our Father and the Lord Jesus encourage us by the more immediate fruit of our efforts. Perhaps it is more often the case that we may not see it until that great banquet where we will see many of those in which the seed of the word of God was planted.
