Pastor Simon during the ‘Man Enough’ series that just ended at Mavuno said something that really struck me. ‘Every man needs a beauty to die for and men to die with’. I loved that phrase. My only correction? ‘Every man desires a beauty to die for but needs other men to die with!’
This last weekend was special for me as I spent the time away in Mombasa with a group of guys that I’ve been meeting with almost every month for the last nine years. We caught up, horsed around, shared deeply and had a great time. Very cool! And then this morning I was at Gideon’s Torch, our Wednesday 5am extreme men’s only weekly prayer time. Around 80 guys showed up before the crack of dawn to receive a Father Blessing. Awesome! God’s doing some very cool things among Mavuno men; more than 80 vukaad (Kenyan for ‘crossed over’) and reconciled with their heavenly dad in our March services.
This weekend we have our largest ever Mizizi retreat. Over 300 people will be together for the whole weekend graduating from what has been a life-changing experience for many of them. Simultaneously, our largest School Of Prayer class will also be on their final retreat! I look forward to the many, many stories from people who’s lives will never be the same. I love my job!
Okay, so it’s also a very busy week and part of my writing this post is to procrastinate, which is what I tend to do when I’m overwhelmed by too much to do. Now you know 🙂 Please pray!
