London to Oxford

We took the train from London Paddington Station to Oxford. We took a bus trip around Oxford where we saw some fascinating architecture. We ended the day by attending Evensong, a worship service at Christ Church Cathedral. It was a good day. Tomorrow we will explore the city in more detail.

Warner Bros Harry Potter Studio Tour

Today, Carol and I toured the Warner Bros Harry Potter Studio in Leavesden, UK, outside London. It was a fascinating tour containing the actual sets, props, costumes, special effects, and movie magic from the actual movies. Well worth the trip. #wbstudiotourlondon #mischiefmanaged

Moscow Conference – Day Four

Friday was the final day of the Moscow Conference. There was more singing, sharing, lessons, volleyball, food, and conversations with friends. I taught about leadership failures and people who had either deserted or betrayed me. The group appreciated my openness and transparency. That session connected with them much more than everything else I taught. We ended the conference with worship and communion. We then gave each of the participants two batons with “2 Timothy 2:2” inscribed on them. I said one was to keep as a reminder and the other was to be given to someone that they train. It was a wonderful end to an wonderful week.

Moscow Conference – Day Three

Thursday was the third day of the Moscow Conference. We had more singing, sharing, teaching, good food, conversations with new friends, pillow crafts, puzzles, and much more. I continued to teach on mentoring–what to build into a trainee, and how to mentor/train someone. Several commented that the teaching was helpful. Vanya said that he had studied mentoring in university but did not know how to do it. After the morning session, he now knew how and it was burning within him to get started. It was an encouraging day.
