A Historic Pivot Point

Kevin and I just got home from our 330-mile prayerwalk from Boston to New York, a historic pilgrimage of intercession from the spiritual roots of our nation to its first capital. I've never felt God's pleasure quite like this on any other missionary journey. Every step of obedience was nothing short of glorious! With no time to catch our breath, God's daily gift of sweet, welcoming fellowship with His saints along the route kept us energized.

What an indescribable honor to serve Christ in such a pivotal way.

I use the word "pivotal" on purpose...not to be puffed up about our mission, but because the necessity of the Church (all of us) to rise up in united repentance is truly the "ground zero" pivot point for the destiny of our nation. This simple truth has never been so clear, all the more in the wake of this "suddenly," already proving itself far more strategic than I'd ever imagined.

I've much to tell you, but first I'm going to slow down a bit with my beloved here at home for a few days. She and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all your generous support in this critical season. Come Lord Jesus!

We thought we would be too late for good weather and fall colors. Thank God we were wrong on both counts!
