Ready or not, the long-awaited Congress of Nations 2019 is just around the corner. At this morning's online Congress Planning meeting, we were reminded of how much there is to still do! On the other hand, it's amazing at all of the progress the teams have made so far.
If you've ever helped plan a large event, you can probably relate to all the "unexpected" and details that require time and attention. Thankfully I'm detail-oriented, which has helped at the tasks that require precision. I usually avoid getting into the nitty-gritty so I don't bore you, but it's a large part of what I'm doing these days.
To give an example, last week I was re-reading a document with passport information that a hotel had written so that our delegates could get Visas. I noticed that one of the numbers and a birth date were inaccurate even though I had entered it correctly on the original document I'd sent the hotel. Not that I don't make mistakes because I'm very capable! And that's just it: there are so many details that, if missed, could cost a delegate their right to enter the host country!
We're so blessed that our leader, Tony, who is bearing the bulk of the responsibility leads us in humility and dependence on the Lord as he prays for us all in these meetings. Would you please join us in prayer? We'd be so grateful!
