Once every few years we bring together the board chairpersons from Navigator national and regional ministries all over the world.  They are gathering here in Colorado Springs this weekend.  These are mostly businesspeople who care about our work and serve by making sure the lights stay on and we’re not going to jail because of mismanagement. 
I call this pancreatic work. (You never think about your pancreas unless it doesn’t work!)  In Ephesians 4:16 Paul used a different word picture: Joints.  Please pray that as we equip and encourage these important linkage leaders, “the whole body being held together by what every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body.”  
Prayer Update:   I am quite encouraged with the outcomes of our team meetings over the last week.  Although I was fighting a cold, the Lord strengthened me to contribute well.  We were deeply encouraged and inspired as together we studied and prayed through Paul’s letter to the Ephesians.  At several points I sensed the Holy Spirit cutting in to redirect us, and we followed His lead!
