Missions and Land Rovers

I want to tell you about Hendro Coetzee (second from rt). He is an entrepreneur from South Africa living in Los Angeles. When I asked him if he planned to go back to SA anytime soon, he said that there were a couple of other places he wanted to live still, like Chile. He said that he could go into just about any country and within 6 months he could find a need in the country and start a successful business. That is so inspiring to me.

Mark Batterson always says, "there are ways of doing church that no one has thought of yet." I think that we may be entering a bit of a paradigm shift in missions. In the last few weeks, I have had so many conversations with people that have challenged my thinking in this area. I believe God is giving me a glimpse of a new era in missions. So, there are also ways of doing missions that no one has thought of yet.

By the way, Hendro also drove a Land Rover (my dream car). I had never driven a Land Rover before so Hendro let me drive his back from lunch. Awesome.

Do they have Land Rovers in France?... and can they fit a family of 6?

I'm sure they have them in France because they're made in England and can probably cross the channel without a boat.

They can also handle a family of 6 with 2 pullout seats in the very back.
