One Month To Manila!!
We're back...and after a longer than expected hiatus, the Blog is back in business with 30 days to go until Passion Manila! While it's been great being back in the USA, we are eager to hit the road for Leg 2 of the Passion World Tour. It's hard to believe that in 30 days we will be walking into the PhilSports Arena in Manila and meeting a whole bunch of Filipino friends for an amazing night that is going to be all about Jesus. And speaking of Manila, are you guys in the UK still out there? Hopefully, there are still some wristbands that have survived since Passion London and you are still praying for Manila!
Not a day goes by that we don't think about Kyiv, Stockholm, Sao Paulo, Kampala, Paris and London....and all of you guys back home and around the world who have been praying for us and supporting the World Tour the whole way. Even though a few weeks have passed since we left Europe, there is just as much wonder in our hearts when we think about what God has allowed us to see as when we were standing in these amazing places cities. We are praying the same is true for you guys who were there with us....that it was more than an event and still as fresh in your hearts today.
A friend sent this along from a French student from outside Paris:
"When Chris Tomlin sang that bigger things are prepared for this city, I was thinking that it was not only Paris that he spoke of, but equally Compiegne. The people of God are a people who will grow. The youth are the future, and you can see that we are always more numerous, more motivated, and that the meeting places are filled for God...for the GBU (student ministry), started with only 2 people. Last semester, we filled my apartment. This semester we succeeded in filling a room on campus. I dare to believe that one day we'll fill a small amphitheater, and why not the bigger theater on campus? We are only ordinary, but we have an extraordinary God: together with Him we can accomplish extraordinary things."
I agree with Sylvain, and pray that the Church in France will grow and multiply all across the nation with hope, truth and grace for everyone. And I love the french translation of "Greater Things Have Yet To Come"...bigger things are prepared for this city! That's so true, and a possibility wherever people are confident that God can do anything.
