Continuing with this series on what lies ahead for 2010, I want to direct attention to the church Natalie and I have been working with part of the time. Third Place is doing something remarkable in the city of Pretoria. SO much of this community has not found healthy relationships in other churches. But… they’ve met God in unique and signifiant ways through the life of this beautiful church.
2010 holds a lot of anticipation for me on this front as well. With the new responsibilities with Nieu Communities, I’m beginning to hand off much of what we started there to some brilliant young guys I’m sure I’ll be writing about in the coming months.
As you think of this church, please continue to pray for…
-a continual passion for God’s presence in this community (which is already SO HIGH)
-funding so that the pastor (Pierre) can go full time in leading the community
-more stories of God’s redemption in the lives of those we get to do life with
