This morning I am sitting in my hotel room in Terrace BC, surrounded by mountains. Last night here in this small community a church was packed with people who came together to study God’s Word by using the book Ignite Your Passion for God. One of the most amazing things about the workshop came with the clear indication that when your pastor supports and promotes the training the congregation will show up. It has actually happened twice on this tour, in Medicine Hat the associate pastor was so excited for us to come and they had great numbers as well.
This tour has been one of the best tours we have ever had. This is now my fourth time crossing the country in 2 weeks or less but it’s not just about numbers in attendance but let’s get that out of the way first. There were a total of 543 people who were trained, 17 flights, 19 locations including our 6 simulcast locations. This year we trained 261 people than we did on tour last year. These are mind blowing numbers considering last year we trained just over 700 people all year. This is a clear indication that God is at work not only with this tour but also with the ministry.
Over the past few weeks I have been blessed to teach from the book that Kay Arthur and I wrote together, all of the people who took the time to join us were blessed by the opportunity to get into God’s Word and learn what smothers their heart and passion for God. I had the opportunity to meet so many people who were struggling in their relationship with Jesus, so many people who have decided to remove the garbage that is smothering their passion and so many people who have decided to finish the study with someone else. I cannot wait to see how God will use this tour to build up classes in Canada.
In Terrace last night the majority of those in attendance were brand new to Precept and Inductive method and one of the comments was “this went by so fast and I feel like there is more to learn”. They are right, in 3 hours we just scratch the surface of inductive study but the key is not learning all you can about the method, it is all about a life changing experience with God’s Word and that was accomplished last night.
Today we take our final two flights as we head home…to hear more about what God did on this tour join me on March 21 from 8:00-9:00 pm for our Live Webcast Event called God at Work-Testimonies from the Road.
Till Next time Canada…
