Preparations for Mexico City Transformation Underway

I met with David Tamez again today, along with my cohort Craig Johring. David is the director of the Purpose Driven network in all of Latin America. We began to talk more seriously about transforming Mexico City and what needs to happen prior to Rick Warren's arrival in August. In February, David will pull together 100 of the most influential Christians and denominational leaders so we can share the vision with them.

I would never have guessed that in a year and a half we would be in this position. What an incredible adventure and humbling experience. God give us wisdom.

Keith Bubalo, Campus Crusade's national director of the worldwide student network (WSN), had this to say about the Enfoque México endeavor:
Enfoque México is a giant step of faith for all of us involved. We are trusting that God will bring awakening and revival in this great city with over 1 million students. We are taking action, believing that He will lead us to students who will be the leaders of the next generation in Mexico and Latin America. I've never been part of a kingdom effort that is so compelling in its urgency and scope.

Again...very humbling.

You know, I've been thinking about it and I truly think that God is using you to do this because you and the others involved are TRULY BELIEVING that God can do it and praying it through as such. Oh, if only student and staff leaders would come along side each other and other ministries here in the US and truly believe that God can work revival in us. I'm so excited for you and the way that God is moving, but in ways I'm jealous because I want this so much here. I'm praying for you loads friend! Seriously.
