I just have to share this with you, my blog peeps. :-) Ready for this?
I have been asked to speak to their leaders, prior to the conference. And, I finally have my message for this prepared. I watched the "Survivor Africa" season (remember, when Ethan won?) and thought I would speak to the leaders on being a ministry survivor...and not just surviving but thriving in leadership!
The actual show survivor had the theme "outwit, out play, outlast." My theme will be outreach, outpray, out last. I can't take complete credit for this - as I got the idea from another retreat that I preached for leaders here in Florida when they had the same theme. However...I thought this would be PERFECT for Africa's leaders, especially since the show was filmed in Kenya!!! I have changed my prior retreat message to adapt to the Kenya leaders.
For the occasion I made my own logo (see above) and am having bookmarks made for the leaders with Hebrews 6:10 on them, which is: "God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them."
Isn't that great??!! I can hardly wait! This is going to be SO FUN! I love it when a plan comes together.
