After we settled back into a summer routine following the trip west, Joel hit the ground running!
He’s preparing to spend time with some of our overseas-based missionaries as they start their furloughs. He and his intern will spend a week in central Pennsylvania towards the end of this month encouraging them in the area of how they use social media to tell their stories and also to capture some of their stories on camera. And there’s something even bigger than that. Joel was asked to head up a HUGE project that will involve he and his team traveling to Liberty University in October to be a part of their Global Focus Week. They’re working on a plan to tie together several different interactive zones across the Liberty campus, where students will be challenged to ask themselves how they can use their gifts and abilities in a worldwide setting, in order to be lights of the gospel.
Pray: for Joel to be a steady leader who is able to cast a vision for this event and then that as he works with his team, he will be able to hone their skills to produce an event that will be powerfully effective in the lives of the Liberty students.
