Praying for Australia

We have several close friends and people who are a part of our church who live in Australia.  As many of you probably know, they have been experiencing several large bush fires across Australia that have already destroyed over a 1000 houses and taken many lives.

There is a video update about the situation on the Internet Campus blog that you can view. I also had several pictures emailed to me earlier today which you can see below. Let’s all remember to pray for Australia this week as they continue to battle the fires in some places and begin the recovery process in others.

Featured Blog: Phil Baker

I’m back home in OKC after a fantastic trip to Australia. It was great to meet so many interesting people and learn more about the work they are doing in churches across the continent. To celebrate the great church leaders of Australia, this week’s featured blog comes to you from Down Under: This site came highly recommended to me by several pastors I connected with during our stay.

Phil is the Senior Minister of Riverview Church, a contemporary multi-site church, based in Perth, Western Australia and Orange County, California. He’s authored several books his messages can be found on YouTube and the Riverview Podcast. His blog features a diverse mix of content, offering perspectives on books, media, culture, technology, food, sports, and the Church. It’s a refreshing change and definitely worth adding to your RSS feeds!

I’ll be leaving next week for a trip through Australia with Kevin Penry. We will be traveling around the country to meet with pastors and church leaders and also visit our friends at Hillsong Church.

July 2nd - Sydney (full schedule, limited availability)

We have meetings setup with several pastors around the country, but I would love to connect with more. If you are available or if you have recommendations of people I should contact while we are there, please email me. In Australia, you can also reach me via phone by calling +61-29-0378330.
