I landed in Brussels March 2 to begin several weeks of on-the-ground ministry in Europe. The day I landed I met with my ‘Spark Conference’ leadership team to discuss ideas for the upcoming Spark Conference October 21. I boarded a plane on Saturday for Milan, Italy and then took a bus to Lugano, Switzerland (an hour or so north of Milan) where I stayed with the Anzalone family, long-time friends from Belgium who pastor an international church in Lugano.
I had the pleasure of co-leading worship that Sunday with Timo Anzalone who led in Italian while I led in English. Always fun to do bi-lingual worship and always a pleasure to spend time with our precious friends in Lugano.
