10 Days Goes to Africa

10 Days Goes to Africa

Greetings from the USA,
From March 3-12, I traveled to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to participate in the MANI Consultation, a gathering of about 700 African national mission leaders and guests from around the world.  Our gathering was hosted at the prestigious African Union building, where African political leaders from the whole continent gather to discuss common concerns.  The Nelson Mandela hall is modeled after the UN General Assembly hall.  It was the first time I had traveled outside of the country since I was in High School, when I barely made it over the border to Monterrey, Mexico.

Insights from 10 Days Connecticut

Insights from 10 Days Connecticut

Rather than sharing summaries of some of the other gatherings (you can read stories from more cities), we’ve decided to share this powerful series of take-awaysfrom Gregg Healey in Connecticut.

Connecticut had a unique, state-wide strategy for 10 Days that involved over 50 gatherings throughout the state.  There’s a lot of encouragement and wisdom to be gleaned from Gregg’s report.  Pick up and read!

Make Room!

Make Room!

The start of 10 Days is just over a week away.  Over 25 cities and regions are gearing up for a set-apart season of seeking God's face. As we approach this season with anticipation, my biggest encouragement to you is: Make Room!

Our lives are busy and distractions are easily available to fill in whatever cracks remain.  I encourage you during these weeks leading up to 10 Days to intentionally prepare a space in your life for an encounter with God!  While making space is important for you personally, it's equally important for what God wants to do through you to bring His Kingdom "on earth as it is in heaven."

My friend, Gregg Healey, had a dream on July 4 that we both believed was from the Lord. The gist: that the path God has for our ultimate "Independence" may not appear to on the surface to be the best or most attractive.  Given its application to the themes of 10 Days and the potential for it to be an encouragement to many of us, I’ve asked Gregg to share the dream and his interpretation.  I hope it inspires and encourages you in the midst of challenging times!

Spring "10 Days Together" in Denver, CO

Spring "10 Days Together" in Denver, CO

There’s a well-worn saying in the Christian life that wherever you go, God is has been there already. 
 
Turns out that’s especially true in Denver, Colorado.
 
My dear friend and ministry partner Dai Sup Han invited me out to Colorado Springs April 17-20.  Dai Sup, like myself, is passionate about seeing city-wide churches adopt 10 Days.  He had arranged some meetings in Colorado Springs but we wanted to see if we could start some fires in Denver as well.
