Another Message to Articulate the Vision
Shortly afterwards, a pastor known for his outreach to third world countries came to preach for a week. After one of the services that week we had the opportunity to meet with this evangelist along with our pastor. The meeting was not planned but we somehow seemed to be in the right place at the right time. It is interesting to see how God puts these things together.
Right off the bat the evangelist initiated a conversation about reintroducing the original church vision. Needless to say I was very excited about this topic based upon all the other messages of this type I had been getting. I listened intently as the two men discussed the original vision of our church when suddenly the hammer fell. The evangelist told my pastor that God had sent me to his church to articulate the vision. Then in the course of conversation he repeated it several times. Here it was again, God was talking to me about the vision in plain language.
