Just one mile from the Detroit airport and one hour before our flight home from Fresh Grounded Faith Flint, our rental car began to shake. A loud scraping sound, like metal against asphalt, filled the interior of our minivan and panic began to rise! This was followed by the sound of shredded rubber flapping in the wind as my husband Phil maneuvered us onto the shoulder of the road.

There was such a welcoming spirit in the church building when we arrived. I could feel it! You know, there’s a difference between being kind and being welcoming. There’s a difference between cordiality and hospitality. And, these ladies in Kokomo were welcoming and hospitable—like family from the word hello!

But we barely noticed the cold temps because the hearts of the women were so warm. It was a sold-out conference with every seat full!

The air was buzzing with enthusiasm when I walked into CrossPoint Church to meet the 168 volunteers who were helping us pull off this Kingdom-minded event. Before we even got started on Friday night, I just knew that the Lord was already moving because His joy in these women was so obvious.
