I thought it would be great to share with you my readers a video that encapsulates my experience with Doma International in Ethiopia earlier this month. By the way, all of this video was taken on the iPhone. You use what you have, right?
Yep, you will thank me as I did find this on twitter with pals like @randyelrod and @chukazooloo who are part of the cre:ate conference tribe. In fact, some of North Point’s programming people have been part of that for years. So, that is one reason I love going to […]
Now into week five of our family’s new adventure I am pretty busy the next three weeks or so! I am amazed at how many local leaders and friends from all over the place have been an encouragement to me and my family. As the Kirkpatrick clan is praying about […]

Recap: I had some vocal challenges this week and our electric player Chris had a pedal fail on him. Even with those and other rough spots, the room felt great with people participating with us! Clay Jones from Biola gave a challenging sermon. Watch it here. Set List: Here are […]
