Entrepreneur Bootcamps in Israel?
Praying for the marketplace from Jerusalem:
What a strange place I find myself in these days. As some of you know, Michael broke out in shingles a few days after we arrived in Israel (April 26th) and he’s been grounded ever since. As it neared the date of our flight home, we knew Michael couldn’t travel and Christian came down with a fever and sore throat! There was a period of being overwhelmed, a little panic, and a lot of prayer. In the end, school, money, and the things that were “practical” went out the window and “What is God doing in this moment, we don’t want to miss it, we want to stay together as a family, God will take care of all those things” won over! Whew!
On the flight over, I jokingly said “We’re coming to Israel to set up bootcamps!” Isn’t it just like God, that during our time here Michael has met with several people (in a reclining position!), talking about business and finds there seems to be a hunger and openness for something like this to happen here in Israel. He’s even been invited to be CEO of a thriving hydroponic business (I’m sure I’m murdering the definition of this) and we’re wondering if maybe God has opened the door for an “Israeli” type of business coaching/mentoring/bootcamp. Why not?!
I remember hearing Kris Vallaton talk about Redding being a template for other cities around the world. I say yes! And as we continue to pray and contend for the kingdom of God to come to the marketplace in Redding, that we would see tangible results and testimonies, that would bring hope and joy to those that have been fighting and battling for such a long time. We also know that it doesn’t happen without prayer, and without love…
