Dependence Delivers

This past Sunday in Chicago was crazy. Not only did we arrive late due to the last minute driving, but the guys in Chicago were on their toes trying to get ready for anything. We were calling the Chicago staff guys all throughout our drive. I just told them to be ready for anything.

But for some reason, in spite of all the madness, God was very gracious to us. The Spirit moved powerfully as we responded to God in obedience.

To be completely honest, midway through our drive, I was wondering if it would be worth arriving past the half way mark of the celebration. I was even thinking about turning around. But with the openness of some of the guys to lay it all down and believe that God wanted to still work even though we were late, it gave me hope. I am glad that I did not give in to my doubts.

Here is an e-mail that I just received today:

hey guys,

well, what a sunday! haha! despite all the craziness, i think that was
one of our most powerful services from beginning to end. we also had
alot of newcomers and from talking with people, they were very
blessed. i think it’s good to get people out of the habit and routine
of things to listen to the Holy Spirit and hear God’s voice. maybe
this is what God was trying to teach us ;).

Seasoned-Citizens and the Internet

I had the joy of going to Panera Bread with my dad today. We enjoyed some coffee together but most importantly, I taught him the wonder of the world-wide web. It was his first time being on the internet. I am pretty proud of my dad that he wants to learn about computers and the internet at 71 years old.

Now he wants internet service installed at his home. I don’t think my mom is going to go for it… haha!

I pray that I will always be hungry to learn new things in my seasoned-citizen years. It is too easy to get comfortable and never challenge ourselves.

Ridiculous Air Transformation Stories #1445

Can an airline cancel a flight 20 minutes before boarding? Yes! We had to find out the hard way. This Sunday we called in to make sure that the flight to Chicago was on time. As soon as we got to the gate we found out that the flight was cancelled. We did everything to scramble and find another flight leaving to Chicago to get us to the 5:05PM Sunday Celebration.

All the flights with Northwest, American, United, and Continental were booked solid!

Then it left us with only 2 options:

1) Not go to Chicago
2) Drive to Chicago and arrive a bit late

 
 
We chose option #2.

We left Ann Arbor at around 4:00PM EST.
We arrived in Evanston around 6:15PM CST.

You do the math.

The driver (who is to be unnamed) was repenting all the way to Chicago.

p.s. Does anyone have a jet to donate for the Lord’s work?
