I am a 41 year old man with aspergers. The church is in dire need of those who understand autism. I have all but given up on attending chuches. I have tried multiple churches over the past 41 years and I am essentially accepted nowhere. People just think I am weird. I try to get involved in ministries and I get the cold shoulder. People will chew their arm off to get away from me. I really want to participate in a disciple study or some other detailed bible study but I can't. Churches just don't understand I don't talk. I can, i just don't too often. Nothing to say. The words ususally come a day late. My anxiety level is so high that many times I can not verbally pray around others. There is no small group that will put up with you if you don't share or pray, but they don't understand how important it is for me nonetheless.
I hope you succeed in your mission. There is a whole generation of us coming, we are not being incorpoarted and will be lost. We get the lip service, but not the actions.
