Yesterday was Day 3 of the conference. It is going to be very hard to say goodbye to the wonderful brothers and sisters I have met here and I really hope that I will see at least some of them again this side of heaven.
The content yesterday was wonderful, but hard. Wendy Patrick, an attorney from San Diego, did a presentation on Human Trafficking. I have to confess that I was tempted to get my shots of her and then step outside so I didn’t have to listen. I am glad I stayed to hear how this amazing woman of God is helping to make a difference in this horrible practice. She pointed out that this problem has not become worse in the recent years that we have been hearing more and more about it, it is actually that there are more cases that are being brought to trial and our awareness has grown. I had a chance to talk to her later after dinner and loved to hear her heart more. She works in a very dark world with unbelievers and desires to be a light and have opportunities to share the Gospel with the people she works with. Whenever you hear about human trafficking, please pray for her.
Here are a few other pictures from the day
After dinner we had a concert presented by our worship band. The leader of the band, Louis Brittz is a lawyer himself. He is from South Africa as are the other members of the band. There is a song they have been singing that I have wondered about because it couldn’t be more appropriate for our group and I found out last night that he wrote it especially for us. I am going to try to get the words to share with you. The times of worship have been so refreshing and last night was no exception. And I was blessed to see that almost everyone returned for the concert despite the very long hours we have all been keeping. I love worshiping with these brothers and sisters!
Please pray for us on this final day of the conference, especially for the conference team that we finish well. Pray for stamina and strength and that as the delegates return to their homes that the changes God started in them will be allowed to continue and that their lives would be even more a reflection of Him in their daily lives.
