Lunch with Joe Couch and Pastor Thomas [From Kenya]

Great Sunday!

Joe and I interviewed David Works for a Desperation video today. He lost two of his daughters in the shooting on December 9, 2007. Wow! His faith is supernatural. Most would think that he would be dealing with the problem of evil or mad at God. However, he trusts in Jesus in a way that can only be described as miraculous.

After service, Joe and I took a pastor from Kenya to lunch. They have a "prayer chain" in their church that goes 24/7. Plus, they have a "fasting chain" as well. So, someone in their church is always praying and someone is always fasting too. They have planted a few HUNDRED churches in Africa. Pastor Brady has been to visit this pastor many times in Kenya. So, they have a long history and friendship.

He talked about prayer being the basis for every activity of their church. He's not impressed with our big buildings. He's not moved by our productions. He encouraged me to build the prayer ministry at New Life. It must be the crux of all we do.
