Erik and I arrived in Arkansas yesterday. We flew into this tiny airport that many people don’t know even exists. It’s only been in use for a couple of years. Wal*Mart has its headquarters here and the tiny plane was full of business people on their way to the Wal*Mart hq’s.
We’re at John Brown University and Richard Sharp from OM, is the main speaker. He spoke this morning on how God has always used suffering to build His church. When the church only has Jesus, it is devoted to only Him and not the stuff that so easily distracts us. It’s amazing how God’s Spirit really has moved in non-western parts of the world in the last hundred years through all kinds of political and natural disasters.
