June Conference Report – June 19, 2011

This is my third time to write this blog and also the hardest. We have just finished a 5 day pastor’s conference and it is so hard to describe all that took place. With so many testimonies that we heard and testimonies still coming in and with Travis, Lori, Madeline and Clara here as a family for the first time, I have been on an emotional roller coaster.


A couple of things that stood out to me: First, the way each speaker’s message connected with each other’s, you would have thought I gave each of them a theme.

Then on the third night, after they had received 2 days of teaching, books, concordances and so much ministry, at the end of the praise and worship they would not stop praising. I stood there and didn’t know what to do next as it would die down and then rise again. I didn’t know what to do!

Then when the last group of leaders went through the bookstore, EVERY book was gone. All the shelves were empty. We are officially out of Bibles and books…an awesome sight. What an investment. Another highlight was having Madeline and Clara help us give concordances to the pastors.

Our family’s heritage continuing in blessing African pastors was extended once again.

All of this with over 500 leaders in attendance, 9 guest speakers who poured out their hearts with tremendous messages, other guests that made it all go smoothly and all without it raining which had threatened too.

Another glorious conference and so many lives impacted. Still riding the roller coaster and not ready to get off. Marriage conference starts in just over 2 weeks and we get to do it all over again.
