I wanted to take a few minutes to fill you guys in on a few things.
You know…a little of this and a little of that? It’s gonna be bullet-pointed, well, because, it is just…a little of this and a little of that.
- Today, I was struck with the realization that God is good. Really good. You people probably don’t make the same mistake I do. You probably ALWAYS give Him the credit He deserves. Not me. Sometimes I can’t seem to acknowledge the work He has done, and is doing, in my life. And when I suddenly catch a glimpse of how He has shown up, of how He loves me, and of how He always provides for me, I am dumb-founded by His goodness, and my blindness.
- Tomorrow, there is a chance, a small chance, that my dear friend Trish (who is in Guatemala right now with Compassion International) is going to meet, and have the opportunity to love on, my sweet little Compassion boy Jenser. Man, the sheer thought brings me to happy tears.
- Friday, I am headed to Phoenix, Arizona, to take part in Together for Adoption. There is so much to learn and do as we seek to care for orphans worldwide. I will be blogging from the conference so check back here for my notes, etc. And if you are going to be there, please be sure to say hi!
- Over 1,200 people will gather together at Redemption Church (Gilbert Campus) to explore the theme Missional Living, the Gospel and Orphan Care. One of our primary objectives for this year’s conference is to create a forum to consider the good news of the Gospel, explore its implications for how we think about and implement orphan care strategies, and discuss how we can move toward greater collaboration as the people of God for the sake of orphans worldwide.
- Next Thursday, I will be at the Orange County Catalyst One Day with Project 7 serving up coffee. I’m excited to be at Saddleback, hear from Andy and Craig, see old friends, and share Project 7’s story. My very first Catalyst experience was at a One Day several years ago and it excites me to know that other people will be initiated into this incredible movement of next generation leaders.
Your turn. Please tell me something, anything, that’s happening your world.
