Around 70 folks were gathered for the lunch, and I enjoyed telling once again the story of Jacob. One of the best redemption stories in all Scripture. I took a solid hour with it. The group remained engaged throughout, and then I had the joy of connecting with several on a more personal level as they came up to greet me after the close of the meeting. It was great to work with Luis Cataldo and Jeff Price, who bring leadership to the IHOP Partners development arm. It was also nice to have Marci in the room, along with Tracey Sliker who helps us part-time in our offices. Thank you for praying me through!
