is in the air. I'm amazed at the number of people I meet who are in the midst
of major changes in their lives and ministries. One year from now not only
our personal lives but the whole world might look very different.
The week of finals went well and I was overjoyed when my first real vacation
started (with no papers to write). I spent the first long weekend with two
different families, and greatly enjoyed having prolonged fellowship with very
precious friends. The day before Christmas (well, the 23rd ;-), I drove over
2 hours north, where Missouri borders on Nebraska and Iowa (I can now add two
more States to the ones visited :-). This was my first Christmas away from
home, and I spent it with a wonderful family including 6 kids, experiencing a
real American Christmas. I even had a stocking with goodies to open on Dec
25! I spent 5 restful days with them, before following the pull to return to
Back in Kansas City, Mike Bickle's Youth Conference was about to start. Again,
I spent the nights away from home with friends who were also attending the
conference. The last day of the year 2002, about 15,000 people gathered to
fast and pray for 12 hours, called THE CALL.
It was quite an event.
After two weeks in different homes, it was really good to be home again on
January 1, to start a new year - a year of many changes, even reflected in
its first few days.
WORLD REVIVAL SCHOOL OF MINISTRY (WRSM)
On January 13 my previous to last trimester starts (my last being writing my
thesis). My classes are Greek, Revival Preaching II, Pauline Epistles III, OT Theology and Five-fold
Ministry. I'm especially looking forward to
actually preaching this semester.
Contrary to last semester, I won't be working in the school office any more,
or teach the kids in the school. That means having more time (which I need),
but it also means that I will have to pay tuition. I'm presently finishing
the translation of the online devotional I've been translating the last two
years in order to be able to achieve that goal.
I'm so excited about the door the Lord has opened to me. I can now register
your domain, host your site, be your administrator, and if you want also
design your webpage. I'm hoping to get this up and running well in the next
few weeks - so if you need a domain or website, consider me. You can look at
a page I designed at www.catchthewind.net
The trip to Malawi that was planned for March has been postponed until June.
In March the Catch
The Wind team will be going to Bulgaria for their third time (see details on the CTW website), and I'll keep
my post in Kansas City again, keeping contact and writing e-newsletters.
In the middle of May, after the trimester ends, I'm going to Vienna
- first time in one and a half years. If any spiritually hungry people are
there, the Catch
The Wind team might join me in Vienna, if not I
will be joining them in Bulgaria at the end of May.
Hopefully Malawi is still going to work out somehow in June.
INTERNATIONAL HOUSE OF PRAYER (IHOP)
That's where I have been taking Jill Austin's class - but not so this coming
semester. I've been looking for opportunities to pour out and am considering
possibilities at IHOP in the coming weeks.
