The Wave Is Growing -2-

From Rainy London...

It's true... the wave of momentum propelling the Passion Movement is growing. When I say that, you have to know it's not just about the numbers, yet the numbers for Passion 07 are tracking ahead of anything we've ever seen before. But that's not all. While people are staking their place in Atlanta, e-mails are coming our way from cities all around the globe. Students everywhere are attaching to the vision and longing to see something happen on their campuses for His renown.

Speaking of heading to Atlanta, people have continued to register through the normally slow summer months and now that school is kicking in the tide continues to swell. As of tonight there are 8025 people who have claimed a spot at Passion 07, far outpacing the 2900 who had registered by this date last year. For us, it's not just about a number getting bigger, it's a sign that God is doing something that people don't want to miss.

Even today more faces emerged as registrations rolled in....so welcome:
Maggie, from Appalachian State University
Caroline, from Auburn
Matt, bringing a group from Sugar Land, TX
Heather, from Southern Illinois University
Lindsey, from Brewton Parker College
Jason, a group leader from Hendersonville, TN
Joseph, a leader from Springfield, Mass
Justin, a college leader from Baton Rouge, LA

We're already praying for you and can't wait to see you.

  • Hi Louie,
    Thanks for mentioning The Sacred Ink project ( www.sacredink.net )
    in you message. My hope is that the article and even more particularly the multimedia storytelling on the site will be another facet to the communication jewel that God is creating on the internet.

  • Hey Louie, We are getting excited for Passion for sure!!!

    Want you to know that my wife and I were thinking of you this summer. We did a missions trip to Croatia to begin relationships with students there and God did some amazing things in our midst. We brought a Croatian college student to live with us here in Phoenix with the prayer that even that will cultivate our relationship with that country. We are going to try and bring her to Passion 07 with us so that she can experience what God is stirring in the hearts of so many here and other places in the world. Thanks for doing what you are doing. My life will never be the same because of Passion.

    On a another note, I am assuming you are Italian. Renee' and I went to Italy after our missions trip and there were signs everywhere that said "Giglio". we took this picture in Venice and thought of you =].

  • Can't wait for my first Passion, a small number of us making the trip from N. Ireland.

    Louie, would be great if you could visit this small part of the world sometime!

    The UK and Ireland needs to re-catch the Vision of giving all the Glory to God!
