It has been nearly two months since our last weekend at Faith Center, and I want to let you know what we have been up to, and what is next for us. In summary, we have been traveling and meeting with ministry friends (and family) to encourage and inspire one another.
Immediately following those services, we flew to Southern California where we met with Foursquare Leaders for the Regional Pastor’s training that took place near LAX.
After this, we went to Cannon Beach (Oregon) for a pastors retreat that was put on by Compassion First, an amazing organization that we have partnered with for years. https://compassionfirst.org/.
We went to Old Oak Ranch (Sonora) for a camp council meeting and endured some heavy snow and cold weather. Old Oak has great leadership (so glad to have Aaron Bull on board!!) and great things ahead. Covid took a toll on camps, so please keep this camp in your prayers. After being there, we went to Orlando to visit Disneyworld for the first time. From there, we went back to the Seattle area where we visited our children, put on a baby shower, and prepped a room for the arrival of our first granddaughter.
Along the way, we have been meeting with pastors for the purpose of investment and encouragement. Our journey is more about people than it is about places. This has been a fruitful and fun journey thus far. The Lord is using us each step of the way. We have also been able to spend time with our children and members of our extended family.
Next up, our journey takes us through Northern California, Nevada, Utah, and Arizona. We have Foursquare regional gatherings in Santa Rosa and Salt Lake City. We look forward to exploring some National Parks while connecting with family, friends, churches, and leaders. We will be passing back through Eureka on our way to Seattle at the end of April.
I plan to do more blogging on this next phase of our travels, focusing on inspiration and leadership.
Thank you for reading this! I miss the staff and people of Faith Center but am confident in God’s unfolding plan.
I hope you will stay connected through this blog, through my YouTube page, social media, or perhaps you have my #.
