In a couple of weeks the "Heaven on Earth" -conference will start off. I'm looking forward to it but I know it's going to be a busy week. First Soul Survivor and then Heaven on Earth. It's not sure if I will attend Soul Survivor this year. It's still very open. Anyway, one of my friends send me a text message this morning about the Heaven on Earth conference. The conference is located in an arena in Rotterdam, a city here in The Netherlands. If I decide to sleep at home I have to travel about 1,5 hours to reach the arena. Which is okay. But my friend decided it was better to just arrange a place to sleep. So she sends me this text message this morning saying: "Jac, I'm going to register for the ministry team so that I also have a place to sleep, maybe you can do the same thing, and for the record: you can pray!"
It cracked me up because I did do a ministry course a couple of years ago at Soul Survivor. If you want to be part of the ministry team at Soul Survivor you need to do a course. So did that but decided not to be part of the ministry team because I'm afraid that I can't pray for someone else... Yeah, I know: everyone can pray. But I'm very insecure and have some issues with myself regarding this, hehe. So I normally say to my friends: "can you pray?"
All my friends know & they joke about it...even my roommates!! Whenever dinner is ready and we are all together they both shout: "I'm not praying".
