Check out all the videos from the congress here on lausanne.org. Specifically, look at the videos from Os Guinness and Carver Yu from Monday and John Piper and Tim Keller from Wednesday. (I believe Tim Keller also spoke on Friday)

What's Your Excuse?

This testimony was given the Monday of the Lausanne Congress. Not only was it incredibly moving, but it certainly made my "hangups" about going overseas look rather pale. If you'd rather see the full-size video, click over to the Lausanne Conversation page.

Seriously. What do we think we're complaining about?

What was it like?!

What was it like to be part of the largest gathering of believers ever?! Well, it would be difficult to put that into words, so here is a great video that Lausanne put together to give the "feel" of the congress.



Over the next few days/weeks, I'll post several videos that highlight different aspects of the Congress. You can also access almost all of sessions online at www.lausanne.org.

We're Home!

We landed safely yesterday (Wednesday) just a little before noon - after 18 hours on the same plane!! Needless to say, we are all rather tired - our total time en route (from the time we left our accommodations in Cape Town for the airport until we arrived back at Tenth) was roughly 32 hours.
The Cape Town 2010 Stewards! (This was taken almost two weeks ago - can you find all five Tenth Stewards?!)

Before leaving on Tuesday. This is the (in)famous African Train Lodge, where we stayed. Table Mountain is in the background. :-)

Our flight from Jo-burg to JFK was delayed four hours... but Tim and Kathy Keller were on our flight, too, so we had time to get to know them!

Thank you for praying! We learned a LOT (Kelsey was a GREAT team leader!) and can't wait to see what God will do in the world through Lausanne III in Cape Town. What a privilege it was to serve!

Here is an article I've written for Sam Logan and World Reformed Fellowship.

We're Still Here!

Hi Friends!

No, we have not dropped off the face of the earth. :-) We're still around! If you want to follow what's going on here more closely, check out everything on the official webpage - www.lausanne.org. Here are a few pictures that will take you on a whirlwind tour of what we've been doing over the past 10 days.

Cape Point!
The beautiful retreat center where we stewards had our first day of training.
The street market outside the church where the rest of our training was completed.
Color in the market!
Our "ministry day" as stewards was spent visiting one of Cape Town's townships.
The view of Cape Town from about halfway up Table Mountain.
The Congress underway! There are about 4500 participants ("delegates") from 198 countries - pretty amazing.
With Pastor Sachie, one of Tenth's partners from Ghana.

We have one more full day of the Congress, then a day to get packed and see one or two more things before we board a plane for another 16-hour flight back to JFK. Please be keeping us all in prayer - we are TIRED! However, things are going really well (God is on the move!) and we are meeting some incredible people. We can't wait to share more with you all when we get back!

Blessings,
Susanna for the Team
