This year Draho and I decided to split the responsibilities we had for EXIT Tour (if you don’t know what EXIT is Click here). This was both exciting and intimidating. I know that I am good in organization and the set up of equipment, but I am not a quick problem solver like Draho and I knew this is something that I would miss and would need at EXIT. So I headed out East, to Prešov, where I lived when I was an Extended Intern. As usual I had to go in trusting God had a plan. It is great to know that in our weakness, He is strong. Well God blessed me with a great sound man on the board, but also blessed me with a great partner in EXIT who in fact has the quick decision making skills I needed and happens to know a lot about sound. The person God provided for me was our new team member Hudson, whom I have written about last month. He jumped in and really was a natural and made my job so much easier and to be honest a lot of fun. I thank God for Hudson not only as a helper during EXIT, but also for a new friend over here whom I can depend on and spend time with, to be encouraged in my growth and life.
One of my other pleasures during this time was meeting my new buddy, Šimon. He was a student in one of our classes who I felt the urge to invite to come to the concert and help me run the light board for the light show. He came to the concert and helped me with the lights, and did quite a good job. I invited him to come to the Fusion on Saturday in Obišovce. He came along with his sister and another friend. I was also able to connect him with some of the leaders there. I hope that this will be a great opportunity for him to grow and be a part of what God is doing there. From talking to him, I believe he is a follower of Christ, but needs a good community to grow in. Hopefully this Fusion will provide the place for him to grow. Please pray for Him!
The whole EXIT Tour went well, the schools and students were pretty open to what we had to share. We will see in the next weeks, what the fruit is in the local churches as a result. Please pray for all the students who heard the gospel at EXIT Tour and for the Churches who are now following up.
