I was also able to give the message on our call of working every day to bring the Kingdom of Heaven on earth. I talked about how God's work brought order, beauty, provision, joy, and potential to creation, and how we do the same thing in our work. But I got a lot of laughs when I pointed out that the corn that I had eaten for breakfast that morning gave me the energy to be able to preach right now! And I thanked those in the congregation who grow maize, as it might have been from them! The resources that God has given us in creation, and how we interact with them, give potential for many things and great flourishing!
Monday and Tuesday we will have our foundational workshop in Ngozi for about 150 pastors and church leaders. Then we will drive to Gitega, where we will do the same workshop for about the same number of people. Then we will drive to Bujumbura, where we will do it again! Right after Saturday's workshop, we will fly to Rwanda, where we will have to quarantine for a short time, before beginning a training in Kigali.
I'll let pictures tell the rest of the story. Thank your prayers, and please keep praying!
