Here is a quick review of the first day of Together On A Mission 2009.

The first session opened with excellent worship led by Kate Simmonds supported by Phatfish. We were then treated to an exposition of Jonah by Mbonisi “Bones” Malaba. Bones spoke about the “global tug of God’s global heart. Some highlights of what Bones said:

When God said “go,” Jonah said “no.”

We can all find good reasons for saying “no” to God. However, there is a pull of God – His global tug that draws us to His will and purposes – just as Jonah eventually responded to God’s call.

Bones challenged two groups of people to respond for prayer: the first those who sensed God’s call to be involved in church planting in the next three years. The second was for those have strength to remain where they are at present. A good number responded to both.

The afternoon session opened with worship led by Simon Brading. This was an another awesome time of worship. Stef Liston spoke from Ezekiel 34. Stef spoke about the child likeness of God. Well worth a listen when the podcasts are available. The afternoon session closed with some “mental” worship that went from loud to meditative in the space of a few songs.

The evening session again kicked off with Kate Simmonds leading us into God’s presence in worship. Terry Virgo started his series of three talks looking at NewFrontiers as a movement: past, present and future. Some excellent teaching on the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Baptism of the Holy Spirit is experiential. Many responded to be baptised in the Holy Spirit.

Memorable quote of the night: “re-discover the splurge of the Holy Spirit.” Terry Virgo [Minor edit to update quote from my notes]

Lots more to look forward to today.

There are certain benefits of a healthy existence. But can medications help us? Naturally, about 35% of Americans order medications online. There are treatment options only for women. If you’re concerned about sexual disorder, you probably already know about “buy cialis online usa” and “where to buy cialis online“. Typically, when folk think about generics, they mean “cialis buy online“. Numerous websites describe it as “buy cialis online in usa“. A common class of antidepressants, which switch on Zoloft, may kill the mood in bedroom. Certain drugs are not suitable for patients with definite conditions, and sometimes a medicine may only be used if extra care is taken. If you experience some dangerous effects which you think may be due to this medicine, speak with your heartiness care purveyor.
