January We attended the Apostolic Summit with Apostle Emanuele Cannistraci, Frank Demazio, & Mel Mullins. Conference Theme was, Redisign: Life/Ministry/Relationships
What a great experience to be in Hawaii with these apostles and other new-found friends. A prophetic word given to Susan and I on more than one occasion was: "You will see dry bones coming together to form a skeleton, ready for the sinew and muscle, pastors and leaders and some are very brittle, but new life will be breathed into them through the fresh message from COTR Network of Ministers. You will be known, not only for what Church on the Rock was, but what it is now becoming."
