We are rejoicing!
God was gracious to us yesterday at the Engagement Project launch in Colorado Springs. We filled the sanctuary of Village Seven Presbyterian Church (within the COVID restrictions) and there were 490 who joined us on the live stream. It was a joy for me to be able to meet so many who had been faithful in leading the Truth Project and were now excited to take this next step. They came from Florida and Georgia, Arizona and Wyoming and other parts in between. Those who were online were watching from New York to Alaska, Minnesota to Louisiana, and New Jersey to Alberta, Canada. Believe or not, we also had people participating in the live stream from Romania, the United Kingdom, South Africa and other countries.
God is so very good!
This is quite humbling to me and I can do nothing but thank our gracious Lord for all of this and those through whom He worked – all those who sacrificially gave so that we might meet what appeared to be an insurmountable budget; those who have labored tirelessly like the Truth Encounter Ministries Board; and those who have been faithful prayer warriors.
This is the culmination of over ten years of dreaming and hoping and waiting on the Lord, but when I held the DVDs in my hands, it finally sunk in that God had carried us to the finish line. However, it really isn’t the finish line because we are dedicated to the care and feeding of all of those that He will raise up to lead small groups in their home and to begin to engage the culture around them. We are going to do our very best to provide them with whatever resources we can to help them in their critical Kingdom work.
We are also already thinking and planning for the final phase: the Restoration. May God put His hands on all of it.
Soli Deo Gloria!
