Hey beautiful bloggers!
Thanks for all the great messages...everything here is going amazingly well...never experienced anything quite like it...had the best birthday ever!
I want you to know that I'm not trying to be vague or mysterious about my trip here. I know you want more details, but I'm relaying all that I can right now. I really didn't know what I wanted to say about the trip before I left because part of the reason for coming was sort of a "wait 'til you get there and see" kind of thing. And even now, it's very challenging on several levels to try to articulate it all to you. I'm on the other side of the planet in a different day without my computer (mine isn't working here so I'm having to use Debye's), and the schedule really doesn't allow for any down time in which to write. I probably shouldn't have even tried to communicate at all because of the circumstances, but I missed you and wanted to connect, so I figured something was better than nothing.
And even when I get back for Sunday, I will still have to wait to see how much I want to say once I get in the flow of the service. There's a reason why Mary pondered some things in her heart...some things just can't be discussed until the proper time. I want to minister to you Sunday, not just give you a report on the trip. Pastor Ben from Uganda e-mailed a Happy Birthday message to me yesterday that said 50 is about the coming of the Holy Spirit...so I don't know what I will or won't say about my experience in Korea, and what it means for the future on Sunday, but I can assure you that I'll be ministering in the power of the Holy Ghost!
The theme of DREAMING and the realization of DREAMS has been so much on my mind the past few days..."When the Lord turned the captivity of Zion we were as them that dream..."...on that note, remember that today is the 40th anniversary of Dr. King's assassination...his "I Have a Dream" speech changed the world. You have a dream in your heart, too...don't ever give up on it.
I've got to go, but I want you to know that I feel your prayers and your faith and your prophetic words...many of you write how important this blog is to you, and you need to know that it's equally important to me.
