On the road again...

Being on the road is perfectly fine, because I love to travel, and my family understands. I also love to be at home just as much.  This means I live the best of both worlds.

This morning is sectional council and just as soon as it's over I'm jetting off from there quickly to travel down to Lake Worth, FL to speak on the Hope Tour again this weekend.  Going to travel along with my good friends Tina Blount and Tammy Young, and that will make the ride much more fun, indeed.

Speaking of travel -- really getting excited about the Africa trip!  I'll be going June 1-8 or 9 (not sure yet what day I'm coming back, still working that out) but it's coming quickly, for sure.  I have been thinking and praying about the messages to bring there as that is always something I start early in seeking God for just the right messages.  I believe we are going to have an absolute Holy Ghost explosion!!!  If you are a person of prayer, please join me in believing for amazing things. 

Also ~ pray that Becca can raise her support to go with me on this trip.  I can always go alone, I've done it before and I can do it again.  But I'd really like to have her with me.  This will be a life changing experience for her in ministry.  And she will be able to assist me on the trip.  Whether she can raise the funds in about 3 weeks will be the determining factor as we have to get our tickets soon.  She basically needs a miracle in the next couple weeks.  But we believe in miracles!!!  If God speaks to any of you reading (or even if God doesn't speak, and you're just an exceedingly cool person who wants to help out!) send your tax deductible donation to:  Celebration Church, 16235 Lake Magdalene Blvd, Tampa, FL 33613.  On the memo just mark, "Africa Missions" and on the outside of the envelope mark it, "Becca Dearborn".  You can also give online by going here.   If you have any questions, email me here.  Thanks!

Tomorrow I'm going to post a few photos from Jordan's birthday dinner last night!  And possibly an update from the Hope Tour but if it's too late and I'm tired when I get home, it'll probably wait til' Sunday...

Relevant Church doing something...

incredibly RELEVANT!

I just heard some news today that really inspired me. A church here in Tampa, Relevant Church is doing a new thing this month called the "30 Days Sex Challenge." (I've never visited the church but Pastor Trinity - our children's pastor - has visited or has met some people from this church and he was very impressed.) Realizing that this is a major element missing from some marriages (the frequency factor) their lead pastor, Paul Wirth, has issued a challenge for all the married couples to have sex for 30 days in a row. At the same time he has issued a challenge for all unmarrieds to completely abstain from sex. Of course we know the Bible says that those who are unmarried should not have sex in the first place but the point is, a lot of unmarried's aren't obeying the Lord's command to abstain and this is just one pastor's way of trying to get them to see that indeed, there is a better way! (God's way!) At the same time, many married couples are no

Excellent teaching on Criticism

My friend Pastor Leanne posted this today on her Myspace blog and I thought it was excellent and so timely. It's a blog post from Pastor Perry Noble , about criticism. I think it's perfect for the pastors at Relevant Church right now, as well as any other person going through this. I would like to note that when he says, "when God begins to move" it wouldn't necessarily just pertain to your church but to your life, your family, your marriage, anything that concerns you. I have found that the greater God does things in my life and the more He blessed me the more I should expect it. This teaching is good, so good I was almost wavin' a hanky in my office. Okay, here we go... You Will Be Criticized When God Begins To Move–Expect It And Get Over It. (Pastor Perry Noble at http://www.perrynoble.com/ ) I've never met a devil worshiper–to my knowledge that is. When I first became a Christian I was convinced that I needed to do all that I could to be ready to c

What Verbal Abuse is Really Like, and Why We Must Care
Guest Post: Terri von Wood

In my speaking travels, I meet the most amazing people. Some are connections that go beyond just a night or a weekend of preac hing. One day on my journey, I met Terri von Wood, and we immediately clicked and have been friends ever since.  Just a reminder that all of our guest bloggers this week are available to chat with you in the comment section here on the blog or on my facebook page where the blog is also published.   *** People who have never suffered through or witnessed abuse (including pastors) often don't know how to help women in abusive situations. Knowledge is power and it is my belief that if the church understood the prevalence of abuse, help would be made available.  First, we must acknowledge that the divorce rate is the same  in the church as in the world.  Second, we must understand that the 50% divorce rate does not include all the women who are abused but stay because they do not know what else to do or do not have anyone to turn to.  If those women we
