Sixty one days have passed since Lenya’s sudden and unexpected departure to heaven. Now that the dust has settled and I have had some time to take inventory I am realizing how much of a before/after event that day was. I’ll never be the same person I was again. It changed me completely. Certain things I cared about before now seem trivial and unimportant. Other things that I was already passionate about now consume me. I suppose that one of the benefits of passing through fire is finding out what is gold and what is dross in your life.
I find myself more focused than ever on the gospel. Planning skull church events, and expanding fresh life into new cities gives my pain a purpose. One area in particular where I find myself stirred greatly is to take the message of salvation and power through purity to as many as possible through the O2 Experience. For 10 years now we have been putting on these events to bring a fresh look at life, death, sex and romance to a generation that is being ripped off and stolen from by the devil. These days that calling is more of a fire in my bones than ever.
This June we are doing a West Coast batch of O2 dates. We will be traveling from Seattle, Wash., through California and then up to Idaho, ending in Montana. God has opened the doors for us to partner with some amazing churches along the way and we are praying that we will see many thousands impacted and generations changed as a result. If you live anywhere near these cities I hope to see you along the way! Click here for more info.
