Weekend in Chicago

This weekend we traveled to Chicago to visit Tim & Chloe Steinke who have been gathering people. Our friend Amie Fox flew in to join us. Our purpose was to observe what the Steinke's have been building, explore God's heart for the city and preach at their meeting Sunday night.

Here is a video of us in Chicago:

Highlights of the weekend:
  1. The Steinke's rule! They are full of God.
  2. Their two precious kids ask the best questions about God. Quote from Jethro "Mommy, does God like jokes?"
  3. Both Heather and I felt sick, Heather was really sick and in bed. The Steinke's and Adam & Kez prayed for us, and we worshiped together in their front room. We were both restored to health. God is so powerful!
  4. Tim & Chloe engaged about 6 different people over the course of the weekend, while we were out and about, and invited them to Fusion. We were personally challenged by their boldness and proactivity in reaching people.
  5. We met an 80+ year old man, John, who had planted 3 churches and pastored for over 40 years. He has written a number of books. What a legend and inspiration!
  6. We drove through Chicago and checked out a few locations. What a city!
  7. We went to the botanical gardens. Not so amazing this time of year, but still worth seeing some ducks.
  8. We visited Fusion and I spoke about serving those in need based on the story of the good Samaritan. They had a number of guests. The worship was charged and Heather brought a prophetic song -- their is nothing as satisfying as entering God's presence.
  9. Both Heather and I enjoyed our time with Tim & Chloe and felt a connection with them. I was amazed at how much they had done considering Tim has a 60 hour work week and Chloe is a full time Mom looking after 2 energetic kids. Keep up the good work guys!
Heather and I will be praying about Chicago and talking with other leaders to see what God might have in mind. Please pray for Fusion. Watch this space ...
