Wow! Wow! Wow!
This is going to be a two part (or more) post. This one is going to be just me writing, rather randomly. The next post will be me writing some thought-out thoughts about the conference: it may take me a few days to process everything that happened in the last three days.
First off, if you're in youth ministry (in any capacity) we'll be in Chicago in 2010 and are inviting you to join us. This thing was awesome . . . uplifting, educational, informative, inspiring. Wow! Doug Fields, kudoo's to you, you put really put together the conference you dreamed of. Down to earth, practical, knowledable, Godly, honest people. Wow!
It's all so overwhelming right now. I really want to write about everything, but I just can't write now.
This is what God told me:
"Go deeper, they'll go with you.
You're messed up. You're BELOVED.
Richard will be going into full-time ministry, before you planned."
The first and last thing scare the heck out of me. The middle just made me cry.
We also have a lot of work to do. It's frustrating for me to know what I need to do to have a successful youth ministry, but feel like I don't have the time to do it. So I have a lot of prayer work to do.
