My wife is involved in foster care and adoptions through Antioch Adoption Agency while my ministry is mostly overseas. I am involved in local discipleship through Life Center and I have been praying and open to serving more locally but as of yet have not volunteered. So I guess I’m inspired to encourage, support and pray for others that are on the front lines locally. That being said, it was inspiring.

(We need to) act on ideas for collective action by the church.

We are meeting with Sun City church to discuss how we can coordinate valley churches to adopt schools. Sun City started with McDonald Elementary about a year ago. We want to focus on low income Elementary schools first.

Forwarded my detailed notes to my pastor, who is part of a relatively new county wide pastors group in my rural county and who has been talking about this for the past year.

I will continue to support and attend unifying prayer and worship encounters as well as collaborating with other organizations to bring events that present the gospel of Jesus as well as meeting needs in tangible ways in Spokane.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Pursue connecting with others who share a similar vision to collaborate on possible opportunities. Share the video with pastoral staff and pray specifically for God to bring that kind of movement (though not necessarily in exactly the same way) to Spokane.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Pray for the churches to take up the challenge.

I have already, since yesterday, made contact with some new church leaders.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I was inspired by the fact that Kevin, the churches and the Christian organizations in Portland are able to work alongside of the City of Portland to serve their community.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hearing from Kevin, who made it real & made it about growing what’s already started instead of a new from scratch ministry.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Would love to see the entire Body work together to do good in the name of Christ.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What can be done in Portland and New York City can be done here. The impact that Christ lovers have made is very touching and puts a fire under us to do the same.

Connecting with the heart of the Father through his message! Amazing! As this was driven deeper into my Spirit I was reconnected with my original home church (Fourth) and some staff still on site! I was connecting with many leaders I have lost contact with. We spoke in power of agreement that without RELATIONSHIPS being built upon Jesus Christ there is no POWER in His Spirit to lead the lost to the One who delivers us into His Kingdom! It’s all about relationships and we saw it in motion …… Amazing GOOD GOD came out of this time together! Thank you!

Kevin offered a model of Christ’s body serving the city!
