Sydney in the Past - Canberra in the Future

It is Monday morning here in Australia.  Neil and I spent the weekend teaching about 60 or so people Organic Church Principles in Sydney.  The reception was strong as many of the people here have been reading and learning about moving church from being attractional to being apostolic (sent), that is, from being being spectators to realizing they are sent into their cities and workplaces to multiply God's Kingdom.  It was refreshing, exciting and encouraging.

On Sunday morning as we arrived to teach, there was a Chinese woman who came up to a few people outside wanting to know what we were about.  She saw the 'Greenhouse' and 'Organic Church' signs pointing to the conference and she found herself curious.  Her name is Eunice and she is part of a cult called "The Supreme Master".   We spent about 30 minutes telling her what we were learning and discussed whom she thought Jesus is.  I encouraged her to get some contact information from some of the people who lived near her home and they exchanged information.  As we began teaching Sunday morning, I noticed Eunice in the crowd.  Some of the ladies invited her to stay and she did.  Please pray for Eunice to remain connected to some of these people who love Jesus so the Eunice can find the true Supreme Master, Jesus Christ and all of her 'karma' taken away.

Neil and I are now in Bombadarry and we will be driving another 2.5 hours to the Capital of Australia, Canberra where we will be teaching tonight and all day tomorrow.  Your prayers would be greatly appreciated for more impact on this wonderful country.

We have enjoyed some excellent lamb, some good steaks, a lamb burger and Chinese food.  I'm loving the eclectic food choices in the country!  Neil and I got to see the new Batman movie with one of the younger men attending the conference in Sydney.  It was a good movie full of action and redemption.  

We have heard about the shootings in Colorado and we pray for the families peace.  Please pray against the demonic spirit that is somehow over Colorado.  This is the third shooting incident that I am aware of in Colorado; Columbine, the shooting at New Life Church in 2007 where 2 students were killed and now this shooting where 12 were killed 58 wounded.  Let's pray against whatever this spirit of darkness and death is hovering over the great state of Colorado.
