Once again, we're sitting in the Amsterdam airport, this time waiting for a flight to Paris. This morning we saw our fourth airborne sunrise, this one over Europe as our overnight flight from Entebbe, Uganda, jetted us from one of the most stunning experiences of our lives. To sum it up, as I was talking before we left with one of the leading pastors in the nation (and one of the men responsible for our gathering being all it could be), I asked him if Passion Kampala was everything the Ugandans were hoping for. He said, "Louie, let me answer this way, NOTHING like this has ever happened in this country before." In case you're wondering, that was a "YES+!"
Somewhere around 25,000 people were with us over the weekend for Passion Kampala, but once again, I can't help see faces...individuals whom God so deeply loves and through whom He wants to open a new destiny for Kampala and the nation. Yet, I must say the crowd was AMAZING! Who knew you could dance to "God Of This City?" And, though it's early and we're all a little groggy from a semi-sleepless night, one thing I can tell you with clarity and certainty--our God is the God of every city, and from the valley slums of Kampala to the most prestigious addresses on the planet, Jesus Christ is building His church and awakening a generation marked by grace and truth.
Once again, our Passion mini-mob is breaking up here in Amsterdam, with the Hall guys heading for OKC, the Chans to LA, some of our Passion Staff Team back to ATL, amazing friends and volunteers to places everywhere and the rest of us heading to the City of Lights. We've been floored by the amazing team that assembled from all over the world to help us pull off this event. Our Kampala event team was phenomenal, and college students and volunteers came from across the US to serve with us. We are grateful to you all!!
Some keep commenting with thanks for the effort it takes to update the Blog, but how could we not stop and send pics and thoughts to those of you are are 120% on this tour with us in your hearts? You have no idea what your prayers, thoughts, encouragement and support mean to us and the students of the world. We are humbled by your friendship and, though weary, we are confident that your prayers and our hopes will be met tomorrow in Paris by the supernatural life of the One who leads us and lives His life through us!
