It's always an exciting time as we get to to hear all that God has been doing amongst us (especially given all the growth we've seen this year), but it's also pretty exhausting with a whole load of information to be taken in and some fairly major decisions to be taken. Please pray for us, for wisdom, for insight, for God thoughts, for unity amongst us all, for me as I lead the team and for Jesus to be exalted through it all. I'm already brimming with thoughts and ideas, but I'm sure we'll come away with even more by the end of the four days.
Also on Wednesday and Thursday night we have our all church prayer meetings (8pm in K2). We're going to be praying for the gift days, the Real conference and hearing updates from the team who just came back from Serenje, as well as worshipping and sharing communion. Please be there if you possibly can.
I'll be at the prayer meeting on Wednesday night, but not on Thursday as on Friday morning I'll be getting up at about 3.30am to join Keith Grainger and other members of the Garth Hill staff as they do an 11 mile walk into school, raising funds for the girl's dormitory in Serenje.
Never a dull moment :-)
