Under A Chilean Sun: Video Update On The National Conference


We just finished an amazing event with the Vineyard communities in Chile, Bolivia, Peru, Brazil, Argentina and Ecuador.

I’m quite tired at the finish, but it was a privilege to be with such fantastic friends here. Abbi (my daughter) had a great time working her linguistic gifts in Spanish. The Southern Cone is filled with welcoming, hospitable friends.

The sessions were rich with worship, ministry and encouragement for all the churches there, and a killer media company, visuals, etc. made the time a great success.

I’m reminded of why I will keep doing what I do; hope runs strong when God is the Subject of the life, acting out the verbs toward the objects of His affection – us.

Thank you all for praying for us. Other details will be up in a few days. Maybe some clips of me working my Spanish chops will make their way to a vid.

Sheltering Mercy and Endless Grace help us rediscover the rich treasures of the Psalms—through free-verse prayer renderings of their poems and hymns—as a guide to personal devotion and meditation. Sheltering Mercy helps the reader pray Psalms 1-75; Endless Grace leads in prayer through Psalms 76-150.

The church has always used the Psalms as part of its prayer life, and they have inspired countless other prayers. Each book contains 75 prayers drawn from the Book of Psalms, providing lyrical sketches of what authors Ryan Smith and Dan Wilt have seen, heard, and felt while sojourning there. Each prayer is a response to the Psalms written in harmony with Scripture. These prayers help us quiet our hearts before God and welcome us into a safe place amid the storms of life.

These artful, poetic, and classic devotional books are a perfect gift, and feature compelling stunning illustrations and hardcover binding, offering a fresh way to reflect on and pray the Psalms. Co-written with Ryan Whitaker Smith, Brazos Publishing.
