Sometimes you have to travel a long way in order to spend time with someone.
I flew out to Dubai last night in order to spend a few days with David Devenish. If you don't know who he is, let me give a brief resume. He has been serving his church in Bedford for 30yrs and has been a senior leader within newfrontiers for much longer than RFC has been in existence! He is now also leading one of the emerging newfrontiers spheres of churches called 'Catalyst'.
David is speaking at a leadership conference hosted by Steve Oliver who is based here. In 45 minutes time we are off to the meeting venue which is two hours drive inland.
I have my running & swimming kit so hopefully I can get some training in, am feeling pretty pent up after all the snow & travelling :o)
