One reason we went to California was to visit family. The other was for the food -- just kidding! The other reason was to attend a Pastor's conference.
Since I am not a Senior Pastor (at least not yet...), normally I would not be able to attend this type of conference.
They are very gracious to helpers, however, and as I was there to assist and represent the Bible College in Okinawa, I was allowed to hear the many speakers.
They were all really excellent messages that ignited a fire in your heart, made you appreciate even more how good and great God is. There were about 1000 pastors there from all over the world.
There were plenty of tables there as well: this was our table.
