The need for future leadership is apparent everywhere, but even more so in many international areas. With over 600 people in regular attendance around the country, the question of who will be available to help serve and shepherd them is an issue. The intent of this program is to better equip men who are already serving in local congregations as song leaders, speakers and in other ways for further service. Having a core of leaders who are willing and able to care for the needs of a congregation only strengthens the entire Church. And it may be that from this group God may make it clear He is calling some to further service in the ministry, even the pastoral ministry. For that only time will tell, but this program is well worth the effort!
My flights so far have gone very smoothly – as opposed to the flights we had during the Feast! Of the 10 scheduled flights during the Feast 6 of them were either canceled or severely delayed! But thankfully I’ve had no issues so far. Flights have left on time and landed on time or even early. If only I were better able to sleep on a plane…
I should arrive in Accra this evening, and have an airport shuttle waiting for me. Jet lag will likely catch up with me in a day or two, but the first night I almost always sleep the sleep of exhaustion as soon as my head hits a pillow!
