Wow, we're in Tulsa! The photos I added are (1) our first church office (hotel room), (2) the morning sky outside our hotel, (3) the aerial view of Tulsa as we flew in. The skyline is way in the distance.
I read this scripture this morning and I know it was not written to us in our situation or time, but it still is a cool parallel to what we're walking into.
Ruth 2:11-12 -I have heard how you left your father and mother and your own land to live here among complete strangers. 12 May the LORD, the God of Israel, under whose wings you have come to take refuge, reward you fully."
We're in our humble hotel room this morning getting ready for a day of seeking the Lord. Our objectives for the next few days are threefold:
Direction on a location (which part of the city will we target?)
Networking (meeting key people who will become key friends)
Strategy (who will we reach and how will we do it?)
Today, our schedule is filled with prayer, fasting, planning and some interviews with local Tulsans. My prayer today for our team is that we would have clear spiritual eyes for both vision and opportunities. We don't want to just plan on this trip, we want somebody to get saved this week through our work too!
