Hope you all had a great Easter? Seems a while ago, now that we are already into May! So tonight I'm writing this from the Holiday Inn at Wembley, staying away for a few nights for the hillsong Colour Conference. We've had a great first night, with wonderful worship and a faith filled message from Bobbie that Jesus goes before us - He is ahead of us on the road, as we just keep on keeping on, He is there too.
I found it really encouraging to remember that Jesus goes before us at REAL . He is in the plans and He will be there - making all the hard work and preparation so very worth it as his presence changes lives! With less than two months to go, we are planning in earnest for REAL. If you haven't booked yourself in yet, we're going to be making it easy for you on Sunday. After all our meetings, you can go to the table in reception and the lovely volunteers will help you to book in via our website,(or you can fill in a papare form) and answer any questions you have. I'm excited to anticipate all the Kerith women booking in and swelling the growing numbers!
We really are prioritising REAL, particularly in all the creative elements that we all love so much about our conference, and there's a lot of time and attention being given to it. So reluctantly we've had to make the decision to cancel the Word and Worship event that had been planned for May 10th - sorry we won't be meeting together in May. Enjoy the gift of some time to perhaps get together with friends, and then let's look forward to an extended time together at REAL at the end of June !
It's time for me to get some sleep now. I go to bed comforted by the knowledge that God goes before me, that He's for me, that He loves me - and I pray you know these truths for yourself too. I'm also so inspired to pray for REAL and to believe that God will be with us and will bless us and that we will grow. I'm praying for 500+ women at REAL - Tonight I had the thrill of worshipping amongst 8,000 women all hungry for God!
