This our last ‘normal’ day for a while. Tonight we will meet with the Manizales church for two hours. I have been asked to lead songs for the first hour and someone else (I don’t yet know who) will present a lesson during the second hour.
Here is a glimpse of what we have been doing this week.
Organizing classes, activities, staff, individual schedules, meals, supplies, devotions, et al. for 250 people over a full week requires hundreds of man-hours. (Not to mention re-organizing many of these every day to compensate for last-minute changes & cancellations.) The hotel has been gracious enough to let us set up office in their restaurant as long as we clear out from 12:00 – 2:00 for their lunch business. (It hasn’t been all work. There’s been time to know and enjoy the city, and to relax before our weeklong sleep deprivation.)
We have a staff meeting today at 3:00 p.m. for everyone who is working the Encuentro. The real fun kicks off tomorrow afternoon at 2:00. Please pray that the coming week will be spiritually beneficial to everyone who attends, especially to those who need it most.
I probably will not be able to post during the Encuentro next week. I definitely plan to post next Friday evening when we’re back at our hotel. Qué Dios los bendiga.
