Tomorrow I will help take 320 young people in our Transform training conference this week out on the streets of to share Christ in Rome – one of the great and needy cities of the world.
Please pray for hearts to be open.
My slogan: ” I’m scared, your scared, let’s be scared together.”
This will give the teams a taste of what they will experience as the move out this Saturday in 40 teams for 2-3 weeks of outreach in the 20+ nations around the Mediterranean.
… smiled and stepped off.
This morning I stepped on the scales, winced, stepped off and stepped on again.
Some days, I’ve stepped on a third time. “This can’t be right! Maybe I’m reading them wrong. Maybe there’s something wrong with the scales. Maybe I should get some new scales.”

describes the German autobahn and when our car had a heart attack in the middle lane, Rachel and I gasped as cars swerving violently to miss us. Helpless, we could not start the car, move it or know how to call the police and frantically tried to find the flashers of this borrowed car. A car pulled up behind and put on it’s flashers.

Ten forever minutes later blue flashing lights. Stopping the traffic, backing us to the side and calling a tow truck, the policeman’s look said enough. I still wonder if the elderly couple who stayed behind us until the police arrived were angels.
The Lord counts the number of our days so we want to make each day count.
