It was DYNAMITE!! Pastor Abu Bako came in from Ghana, Africa and spoke as well as Robert Hagan, also from Ghana but now in Illinois.
It blew my mind. It broke up old thinking and started building new thinking. I think its safe to say that its been a re-defining weekend for me.
I and a team of excellent singers and musicians (Tim & Jess Power, Jeanine Rea, Ashley Helbig, Tim Shaefer, Tim Wiggins and Joss Riddering) had the privilege to lead the room in worship both Friday and Saturday nights. The environment and the atmosphere in the room was bold and on fire. I've been in plenty of conferences but this was beyond encouraging - it was reestablishing foundational truths of God in people, the city and the nation. It was very different.
GUESS WHAT?! THE BALL IS ROLLING!!
We started to pre-sale the cd that weekend to the group at the conference!
We're anticipating actually releasing the album in another 4-6 weeks but we will SOON be making pre-sale of the cd available on the website!! Woo-hoo!!!
Personal Note: if you know me and are curious what this sort of thing feels like - well, it feel like the mixture of excitement and terror that you feel on a roller coaster. I'm not the best manager or organizer so I'm heading into unknown waters with GOD and the assistance of the Holy Spirit. But who better to have in your corner!!!! If HE can speak a universe, all its planets and creatures into being.....HE can help me manage this project! And that's exciting!
Well, I need to get back to homeschooling (YIKES). These are very exciting times!!
