Planning in balmy Knoxville, TN
I'm meeting with people from around the world in Knoxville to plan the Lausanne Congress in South Africa over the next two days. Pray for us to catch the Lord's vision for evangelizing the world. I've been blown away by the vision and passion of the team, which includes Paul Eshleman, head of Campus Crusade for Christ and the Jesus Film outreach, which has tripled the size of our denomination (Church of the Nazarene) in about a dozen years. During a time of open prayer, I was just about to pray that the upcoming Congress be the next Pentecost, since 4,500 delegates are gathering from 200 nations, when a gentleman prayed that The Holy Spirit would send tongues of fire to ignite us. Lift us up as we seek the Lord's vision.
