So to make it clear for those who aren't quite up to speed - here's the deal. I was always going to "Glory and Grace" in Hong Kong ... until last week. I had the money saved up for me and Scott to go and we both had the weeks booked off. Then unfortunately my new work intervened and said they "couldn't afford for me to go" seeing as the paediatric client I look after won't have proper care while I am away. I tried and explored every option short of resigning (I was open to that prospect and just waiting for a confirmatory word to do just that!) but it seemed clear that something just wasn't right.
There's been nothing short of a satanic onslaught trying to keep me away from Rob Rufus this week. Firstly this whole disaster with the conference happened. So I vowed to take sanctified revenge on the devil and told him "he would regret what he has done" and began transcribing the message of grace with greater fury and greater venom than ever before! The next thing that happened was that internet access in my flat got cut off - thanks to a "surprise" virus. I sorted that out by installing wireless internet onto my laptop that I use for transcribing. And then last night I was packing to go to work and my IPOD that I store all my Rob Rufus sermons on was stolen from my car!
Oh and then a day too late ... my work turned round and said I could have the week off anyway!
Nevertheless my threat of sanctified revenge still stands! Three of my most special friends are going to "Glory and Grace" and I am probably more excited about what God will do than when I went to Hong Kong in October 2007 (maybe!). We have agreed that absolutely EVERYTHING they tell me is going to be reported and published so this conference is the most heard about event possible!
My wonderful friend Ursula sent me the first of many updates I hope! Her being able to go was a miracle in and of itself promised to her by Jesus - here is her testimony! Here's what she's going through;
"Dan...wow....I'm so excited! I just heard from Fini...and they are so stoked to be seeing me....and me them, so hopefully I can steal them away for an hour or two and just spend some Father, Mother, Daughter time! I can't wait!
Other good new is that Fini went to SA for his brothers funeral and one got saved and several healings. Yay Jesus!
Ok...so the plan is, I'm going to London tomorrow afternoon to spend the night with my oldest friend, who is not saved. I'm really really excited! You knwo when you know someone its like wearing old slippers? So we are just going to hang, visit, she is going through some stuff so I get to minister the love of Jesus.....and we can just be! Then Monday I head to Heathrow...and on the flight!
Arrive in HK, attempt to take two busses to where I'm going.....and text my friends to pick me up! And then....GLORY! The party is guaranteed to start immediately! So good!And then....Wednesday...BLISS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now I'm probably staying with Lydia and Julie Sat/Sun night....so we will be sightseeing and all....and I have the whole of Monday to sight see!I heard from Julies hubby yesterday and it sounds like she is having a tough time with morning sickness......hopefully we get to see her healed of that quick smart! And of course will have my phone to send you texts...heeeheeee! Going to be so so fun! ;-)
Ok...I have to go put the first load of washing in!!!!!!!
Our prayers and thoughts are going with you Ursula!! As I say, my plan is to publish absolutely every scrap of information that they send - I feel like a dying man desperate for drops of water of glory here! And I know God is going to do some life changing work in everyone who attends that conference.
