Well, I'll go on. You are probaly thinking, "Good, get the point and stop being so annoying!" or if you are cool, you are giggling with me. I hope you are cool. Oh, was I babbling again. LOL!
I was experiencing so much pleasure this weekend. I get so much pleasure in seeing other people bloom. I get so much pleasure in seeing people owning vision and doing whatever it takes to make it a reality. I get such a thrill out of it. I love seeing people owning a God sized vision and this weekend I had the raw pleasure of seeing this happen with one of my close compadre's, C - Note. She took hold of a vision, grabbed the bull by the horns and rode that sucker!
As you know we have a team heading to the ends of the earth. We are heading to London to join a movement of South Asian Young People who want to do something about the cause of Christ. Some of us have never been overseas before, others of us have never done something like this. We are nervous, excited, exhilerated and even a bit... what is the word... expectant.
I'm so proud to see C-Note rise up! She took on a little fundraising scheme and it turned out to be a grand success. I barely had to lift a finger because she and the team took on the whole project. It such a releif to know that I'm not the only one who owns the vision but there are others.
It confirms that I am not doing it in my flesh because others are rising up. It shows God's Spirit at work. It show's God is in this work. It prooves again that this is His vision and not something me or Pastor P or Dr.TV have done in our own ingenuity. Thanks'a gain C-Note for proofing that!
