Update From Ghana

2018-02-20

Well, here we go again on another adventure together. Thanks so much for traveling with me through the miracle of prayer. A special welcome to our 50 new friends who have joined our prayer team after studying Revolution together last week at Sky Valley Resort in Desert Springs, CA.

2018 02 20 image 1If you’re like most Americans, you’d be hard pressed to find Burkina Faso or Burundi on a map. And yet, those nations are full of people God has targeted with his eternal love. The Church is growing rapidly in most of Africa but the crying need is training pastors and developing leaders. I’m in Ghana in west Africa for our African Continental Conference. Our leaders from 14 different African nations are here to be trained in Revolution: How Millennials Can Change the World, our new course of the life of King Josiah.

Generational issues are a huge deal here in Africa. The divisions are real and deep — both in the culture and in the church. This course addresses these issues head on. Josiah’s life also rekindles our hope that God can transform any people group that humbles themselves before him. Most of all, Josiah models the importance of God’s Word as the most powerful catalyst for lasting life change.

I’ll try to send an update each day this week, so keep your eye on your inbox. One specific request is my health. I’m feeling pretty rough with either a cold, sinus infection, or mold allergy. Thankfully Ellen packed me a mini pharmacy so the symptoms are mostly under control. Please pray that my voice will hold up, especially the next two days. Rich Leland is with me to assist with the training so everything will go forward with or without me, but I don’t want to miss a minute of this miraculous movement of multiplication!

Thank you for fully engaging in this strategic week of training. Please take a moment to leave a comment below and send a few words of encouragement. You have no idea how much your partnership means to me and our team here!
