Thank you dear team for your prayers as we launched the new Fusion in Obišovce! We officially have 5 Fusions in 5 Denominations now! The launch went real well. Abby, our intern, and I led the Fusion launch along with 13 students we brought from our other Fusions to help. I am happy that these students were able to be a part of helping another church start Fusion. We started with a practice on Thursday evening with all three of our groups together for the first time. I was quite surprised how quickly we came together as one group!
On Friday morning we practiced again with the band and then had a very quick sound check so that the youth could go and invite students to the concert. The set up was a little chaotic, we had some problems with power, but we were able to finally get it working. We began the concert on time with many people coming, unfortunately a bulk of the audience was below 10 years old. Despite this we had 10 new youth in the evening at the first Fusion Rehearsal. From what I understand this is more than the last two Fusions we have launched. I am very encouraged by this and am happy as I talked to these new students, that they are interested in continuing to come and bring friends. Abby and I will go this week to their second rehearsal to help them.
Three things to pray for:
1. For the team in the local church there to continue to have God’s power as they serve! To be filled with joy!
2. For students and lots of them, to come hear the gospel.
3. For the community to be behind Fusion. (we had a problem with some people living around the Fusion room complaining about the noise).
