Hello from Hillsong Conference!

I just wanted to say hello to everyone from Sydney, Australia. I’m having a great time here at the Hillsong Conference! Yesterday we had a lot of fun catching up with old friends and just catching up with one another – it was so cool! If you’re interested in knowing more about the conference and see who all is speaking, you can check it out online at www.hillsongconference.com. I have even been able to see some of my American friends since I’ve been here! I spent some quality time with Joel and Victoria Osteen yesterday and it was so neat to see them.

International Headquarters in Nashville, Tennessee

This is their first time to Australia, and they, along with the whole Lakewood team including Cindy Ratcliff and Israel Houghton, will be doing the whole service on Thursday night. There’s a real sense of excitement! The Superdome is packed out and it’s really awesome to see so many people from so many different nations of the world come together just to worship God! NO AGENDAS, JUST PURE WORSHIP!! I am so thankful for all of the people that I get to do life with.

On Monday, I was also able to go by the Mercy house and see all of the renovations in process. It’s really starting to come together and it’s very exciting! I also got to have dinner last night after the Hillsong meeting with Philip and Holly Wagner from Oasis in Hollywood, California.

They are such dear and precious friends. It was so fun to catch up! Hope all is well on your end of the world, wherever you may be at the time that you are reading this and I will chat with you again soon.

Love to all,

Slightly jealous! I loved Australia and Hillsong Church when I went. Would love to go back sometime! Glad you are having a great time!

Above all else: Love said...

Nancy it is always such a blessing to read about your travels. It is so good to know that he has been so gracious to you after all the work you have done and inspired for his kingdom. And to follow Kristin I am slightly jealous.. Hillsong is beyond my favorite worship band.

Be Blessed!

What a blessing God has given you to be around so many Godly people with such an annointing so bring it back. God is always at work
God does the most when we think God is not at work.
Don't let Joel tell you that he's good looking tell Him You are the Apple of His Eye and your beauty comes from the Creator of the Universe
