I am in Kansas City for another day before I head off to Kenya and Zimbabwe. I have been here with Pastors David and Tracy Frech at Church of the Harvest in Olathe, Kansas. I have had a great time profiling and interviewing their leadership team. I also spoke on Sunday and delivered my purpose message on Samson entitled One More Time. I have been impressed with the church. They have good leadership, a wonderfully diverse group, and vision for the future. It was an honor to be here. I also enjoyed connecting with my friend Bernard Franklin last Saturday evening.
I will be with the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority and my friend Kentice Tikolo for one day in Nairobi, then I am off to rejoin Pastors Tom and Bonnie Deuschle in Harare at Celebration Church. I won't be home until September 27, but will be busy in Harare. I have six days of facilitating for The Pacific Institute, a trip to Israel and Jordan, and plenty of work to do to prepare for the upcoming Celebration Choir tour in October to the States.
I am still basking in the glow of what I learned the last two weeks in my D. Min. program. I have plenty of work to do to complete my classes, but I am looking forward to it all.
I will keep you updated from the road.
