Vision & Outlook
- Praying for Host Teams to catch God’s vision. We pray for courage for each of the groups, host teams to step out in full assurance.
- The classic picture of a high, snowy mountain, with climbers. Planting a flag, but below the summit. A sense of achievement, but not at the top. Feel the Lord saying that our work is not finished! The air is thin and we need the strength to persevere. And we need to be sure-footed. So often we look to those who go to the summit route, as the people who pioneer – but there are always people who are at base Camp and do the moving and shaking.
- Picture of Jesus standing. Elijah said, let him see into the next dimension! All the Filling Stations are the chariots. Our hearts desire is to see his Kingdom Come.
- A blank canvas, and the word re-imagine. “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” – Isaiah 40:31. Particularly with regard to Refuel and FS Conference in 2023.
