Ministry Survivor: Africa


Well, prayer is working! My messages for Africa are coming together!

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.

Yes, that's awesome Pastor Deanna,

God is really going to use you to change many lives over in Kenya. Actually He's already started and you will see the manifestation at the meetings. Pray I get to hear the messages one day (smile)

May God continually bless you and your ministry and family.

lots of love
