It has been a very full time since August.
From 3-5th September, I attended the Australia Marketplace Leaders Retreat with up to other 30 people. The attendees came from across Australia and New Zealand. Their individual ministries/projects/visions cover many aspects of society, from the Bible Society to Business, Politics to Pastor, from Road Contractor to Radio Manager. Yet we became connected, common focus Jesus our Lord and the Kingdom of God.
An extract from the retreat report by Peter Kentley (Australian Marketplace Connections) “As marketplace leaders from around Australia and NZ engaged in this dynamic there was a powerful release of the Spirit in love and unity under the purposes of God. This spiritual place was expressed numerous times during the retreat and it was expressed as “locking shields” in battle. This was strongly affirmed in the first session by a battle cry in unison: “As One!”.
God is moving in the marketplace and rising up new and exciting visions, projects, and ministries.
Apart from normal work related activities most of September has been working on “the book” and a new aspect of what I am doing with this 7 mountains calling.
October 1st and 2nd, Daniel (my youngest son) and I attended the Ministry in the Marketplace School with Dr Alistair Petrie. www.partnershipministries.org and hosted by Business Blessings. Dr Petrie explained that when Business and the Marketplace converge with the Kingdom of God the result is absolutely profound. Alistair unveiled and explained the world of business from God’s perspective. The testimonies of transformation of businesses, churches, towns and cities were faith inspiring.
We launched the “new” aspect of “the7mountains” – video interviews. Today the shortened interview with Wesley Leake of Business Blessings was uploaded to youtube just type in http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k8Wx69EKkhA
The full interview will be available in a couple of weeks, along with interviews with Dr Alistair Petrie, Danny Guglielmucci, Steve Lynn, and others. I am spinning as God opens doors for these interviews.
