Today was an amazing day! I expected it to be good, even big, but it wasn't one that I anticipated being so personal. Isn't that just like God? To show up in places where I least expect Him and to bless me in ways that are so sweet.
Our church has been planning a big event and today was the day!
The Summit is a multi-site church meeting in various places around the Triangle area. This was an opportunity for all of the campuses to come together and worship as one for the first time. We met downtown at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park. A baseball stadium. Thankfully the weather was beautiful!
The place was packed! When Christopher called me, I couldn't find him in the crowd (and it was very hard to even hear him on the phone). We did meet up after the service.
After talking we went down to the field with a change of clothes in hand. (The church brought many bags of clothing for people so that this wouldn't hold anyone back.) Isaiah went into the locker room to change.
Today was amazing. (I know I've said that already, but it bears repeating.) We attended church today with 7200 people. Over 300 people were baptized! This isn't about numbers. These are all people. People who have decided to state publicly that they love Jesus. I am so thankful to be a part of this church and to see the things that God is doing here! I am excited. I'm excited to be a part of a community that seeks to love God, love each other and love the world.
Today was amazing. One we will treasure. Thankful to be a part of this. Praising God for the work He has done and will continue to do!
In His love,
