The Church, The Radiant Bride of Christ
This was the theme of JV Fall Conference last week, and what an amazing week it was. 170 people from 11 countries all gathered together for worship (sometimes in all 11 languages), teaching (that kicked my butt), and fellowship (so many sweet conversations with people living and serving across this whole region). It was a time of celebration and praising God for all He has done in these countries. It was a time of growth and challenging as we were presented with the whole spectrum of what is the Church and what does that mean to us in our daily lives? It was a time of repentance as we listened to the Spirit and were each personally convicted in different areas in our lives. I hope to post some of my thoughts on the various lessons and what God was teaching me through the week.
