The Wave Is Growing!
I could literally write for a week and not fully capture the scope of what happened here in Kampala today. But sadly, we are all both blown away and exhausted after being at the field all day and night, so this picture will have to tell the story for us tonight. Not to be outdone by their "new" Brazilian friends (we opened last night with a video clip of Passion Sao Paulo's ending last Saturday and the students chanting "Kampala, Kampala!"), tonight this poster appeared in the middle of a crowd of somewhere near 20,000 people when we talked about out next stop Tuesday night in France! We were floored!! It was a powerful ending to a weekend that has left us speechless. The students here have sunk their hearts into Isaiah 26:8, and now join the growing wave of students all over the world who want to live for His renown. Hearing them chat "Pair-ees, Pair-ees" in their beautiful Ugandan accent, and watching them give what some believe is the first ever offering by African students for people in a place like Paris, was crazy...and just like the Kingdom of God in that it turned everything upside down.
God was with us as we worshipped (more on this to come) and I shared the Indescribable message under the night sky (the damaged LED wall worked for the first time right before we started tonight's last session!!). One word. WOW! I'm afraid we're going to crash for now, pray for supernatural restoration, sleep with smiling Ugandan faces in our heads, thank the God who is the author of unstoppable grace and hopefully post more photos tomorrow! Much love from lovely Kampala! Louie and all the Passion Team.
