Friday: I’m on my way to Boston this morning (via LaGuardia). I will arrive tonight so that I’m on hand for a morning meeting tomorrow in Worcester. This will be my first time to be at Faith Fellowship Ministries International, Worcester. This is an African congregation, and my impression is that their constituents come from a variety of nations in Africa. The seminar will be tomorrow, 11 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. I have an hour within that time frame for sharing. It’s a worship seminar. Their worship team came to a worship event I did in the Boston area a couple years back, and now they’ve arranged for me to come to their church.
After dismissal, their driver will transport me to Hyannis, on the Cape, where I am scheduled to minister Saturday night and Sunday morning.
Sunday 7:00 a.m.: It’s a lovely morning here on the Cape. I’m not used to waking up to such cool, refreshing mornings — in the summer, the lows in Kansas City are around the mid-70s, and humid. But here, summer mornings are so fresh. We got some rain overnight, but still, I think I’m going to go outside for a prayer walk. But first, a catch-up visit.
Had a sweet time with the saints in Worcester. They had around 60-70 adults show, which I considered a strong turnout for a Saturday 11:00 a.m. I spoke on following the river of God in worship, and they received the message warmly. They were eager for books afterwards, which is a good indicator for me of spiritual appetite in the congregation. Sweet. And the fellowship was also sweet. Afterwards, my host Chioma drove me (with her fiancé) to the home of Erik & Tami Eskelund in Hyannis. It was around a 100-minute drive one way. Erik and Tami prevailed upon them to stay and join us for dinner, so we had a large table of friends gathered over a grilled steak dinner. Way fun.
