Both of us are traveling to Europe for a gathering of all the GCM national leaders the first week of September.. The purpose is to strengthen our commitment to seeing a vital church or faith community established for every one everywhere. We will be focusing on the 4 “Bold Move” aspects described in the previous posting.
The biggest challenge has been getting visas for many of our national leaders from various countries. It has been discouraging to many that they have been denied entry into our host country location. However, God has given us a creative solution to repeat the gathering in a few months in another part of the world. While this initial seems like a burden, we are trusting that there will be unforeseen benefits that God has planned in advance.
Please pray for encouragement for all those in attendance and sharing of ideas from around the world that can accelerate the work of each country as they partner with others and train new pastors and leaders.
