Today was a bittersweet day. September 11 or 9/11 as many would prefer to call it. I saw post after post, video clip after video clip, prayer after prayer on my Facebook page. Such a terrible, tragic day in the history of humanity…and yet, it reminded me of the need for disciple making. If the church would only mobilize her people to make disciples who would make disciples who would make disciples…we might just do what the Apostles were accused of doing…turn our world upside down…or, in reality, right side up.
Thankfully, we did not have to be anywhere early today. When we did emerge from blissful slumber, we did touristy things.
We visited the world’s largest open pit mine and walked around one of the historic areas.
We had a group of roughly 30 tonight. So far this has been our most responsive group even though there were no questions. Just about everyone was taking notes and agreeing, laughing, nodding, and looking grieved or concerned at the right places. By the time the presentation was over it was simply a matter of finding a date that suits everyone for training…did I just say “simply”?! But the general consensus seems to be the first weekend in November. Yikes! That’s just around the corner.
We will sleep well tonight. The Lord is on the move that is certain.
