Indy part 1

I am currently sitting in my hotel room relaxing after a long day here in Indy. Tracy and I made it here last night much quicker than we anticipated and thankfully missed all of the flooding that has covered Indiana just south of Indy. Today was a busy day, but an enjoyable one. I spent a good bit of this morning meeting with some great folks. I had the opportunity to sit down with Ed Stetzer for a while and discuss his new book. A two part interview will be posted first thing in the morning. Make sure that you don't miss that. I also spent a bit of time this afternoon with Avery Willis. The more I get to know him the more I am impressed with his genuine humility. During our conversation he couldn't stop speaking about the need for our convention to experience revival. We need a President like that. Meeting Nathan Finn face to face was a great treat. I'm looking forward to spending a bit more time with him over the next day or two.

After all of this I had the great privilege of being a part of the Committee on Committee meeting. Serving on that committee has been a highlight of the convention for me. I'm excited about our report that comes out on Wednesday morning. In addition, after the committee meeting, Tracy and I were privileged to enjoy a dinner with the IMB. We got to listen to Dr. Rankin as well as a few other missionaries and wonderful, visionary pastor J.D. Greear. My passion for missions was only stirred to greater depths as I listened to them communicate about what God is doing around the world.

With that I think I'll sign off for the night. It's been a long day and tomorrow comes early. By the way, don't forget to check Alan Cross' blog during the day as he should be posting updates throughout the day. In addition I hear that Ed Stetzer's going to be twittering again tomorrow so you should run by their as well and try to keep up with what's going on at his site. We start the business sessions tomorrow so be sure to try and keep up. Between the business session and the presidential election it should be a fun-filled day! :-)
