I am off to Switzerland for a week! I really have no idea what’s in store… I know that it will include leading worship, preaching, and loving on 250+ youth and young adults aged 15-22.
This has been a very quick thing, too. A friend I met in Mozambique in 2008 contacted me about coming about a month ago. They are hosting this youth event under a tent. God put it on Sébastien’s heart to fly me out there, and he pulled up my Facebook to contact me and saw me leading worship for the tent revival going on in our community! What a cool confirmation. I am honored and blessed to go and be a part of what God is doing in Geneva, Switzerland. I believe that the Lord is going to move mightily over the next week! I am believing for big things and I appreciate you joining me in prayer for this. We have seen so many amazing miracles over the last few months in our community — a 4.5-month-old baby born blind who received sight to the amazement of his doctor, six doctor-verified healings of diabetes, dental miracles, and disabled people being completely healed to the point they can walk pain free without the assistance of their walkers — just to name a few! (Check out www.crossfireky.com to see all of the amazing testimonies of what God has been up to in Madisonville, KY!) I believe God wants to release these same signs, wonders, and miracles all throughout the earth, and I am excited once again to travel the globe and be a part of such an outpouring.
On a side note, I am thankful for the small blessings that God is already providing in my international travel. When I booked my flights, I was stuck in middle seats in the middle of the plane for the trans-Atlantic flights because that’s all that was available. As I was flying from Nashville to New York, I checked again and was able to change to window seats on both flights which had come available today! On the return flight, I am actually the only one in that row right now! I love it how God cares about the little things like that, and answered that prayer. He is so good.
I am thankful for my awesome best friend who picked me up and took me to Nashville to the airport and had lunch with me before I left. We had some great time with Jesus praying and reading more of Keep Your Love On by Danny Silk. I am also thankful for friends who have connected with me or stopped by my house over the last few days and prayed with me before I left… And for a wife who is so loving and supportive and who let me leave the country without her, guilt-free, on her first week of school! :-) I am convinced that I am loved by some of the best people in the world!
