Azusa Street - Where pentecostal experience restarted!Today I am sick! My eyes are runny, my nose is runny and my throat hurts so bad! I really don’t want to be sick, but I only have myself to thank for it! I haven’t been eating correctly and my body always gets run down when I don’t eat right. I usually end up sick. I wish I didn’t like anything sugar so much!

Sunday night, we went to an evening service at Brighton Assembly of God. Chris, my hubby, wrote about our experience in his blog, but I have some thoughts of my own. I am not a big fan of church services. I know that sounds wrong coming from a minister, but sometimes I really wonder if we are meeting people’s needs through them. I try to get my kids to sit and listen, but at age 3 and 4, they only do so well and it is distracting to both me and the people around us. It is difficult to attend services with them. However, I really enjoyed Sunday evening’s service (even with the kids). We drove 2 hours to get there, but even that didn’t damper the evening’s greatness. (more…)

This week was the 52nd General Council of the Assemblies of God. It was held in Indianapolis, IN. There were some major changes debated. Some passed and other did not. I would like to highlight just a few that were the most important to me.

First of all, our new General Superintendent is Brother George O. Wood. I am very pleased with this. I have heard good things about how he is progressive in his thinking and actions. I believe he will do well in this position, especially as we transition into a fellowship that seeks to keep its younger and female ministers and younger constituents. I appreciate all that Brother Trask has dome for us and pray for him as he continues his journey of life with God’ direction.

Our new Assistant Superintendent is Brother Alton Garrison. I must be honest in my hopes that Brother Doug Clay would be voted into this position. However, I know that God led the voting that took place. I was unable to be there, but I did pray fervently for His will. Therefore I know that Brother Garrison is the right man for the job.

Our new Executive Director of US Missions is Brother Zollie Smith; an African American man! Check out 1:16:20 of this video. It is a moving acceptance speak. I am very happy to see what I believe is our first African American on our Assembly of God Executive Team. I praise God for his guidance as people voted. (more…)
