It is soo late and I have soo much to do but just needed to get it out of my system! I am pumped about heading to Unleash tomorrow. Mike and I went last year and we were blown away by the messages, the music, the volunteers, the excitement, the passion, the staff . . . I could go on and on! Mostly we were blown away by the passion NewSpring had for people to meet Jesus – it was contagious. Last year we were still a little unsure of where God was leading us. We knew what God was leading us to do just not where. Mike was not full time at Cornerstone -so taking back all we had learned was a little tough. We are bringing 9 more people with us this year from Cornerstone! I am so excited for us all to be encouraged and come back to Galax with a passion to reach people for Jesus. It couldn’t have come at a better time. Tonight our band led worship at a community wide revival. Skateboarder Tim Byrne did some cool stuff with a skate board that would have put most people in the hospital. He had a great message and an incredible humble and authentic spirit that really connected with people. Ken Freeman had an awesome message from Proverbs – first time I’ve heard him preach – powerful. Seeing the response was the best part. There was a group in the seats in front of me that prayed together, held hands, cried together as Ken challenged them to pray together and hold each other up and hold each other accountable. There is nothing like seeing talk lanky 16 year old guys crying out to God together. That never gets old -never!
Hope you have a blast at the Unleash conference!
