Vision Trip to Rome and Marseille
This past weekend I returned home here in Germany after Upstream's vision trip.
We had a great week. Learned a lot. It was really cool to be around a group of pastors and mission leaders who are serious about keeping "missions" in "missional". It is encouraging to listen to people who want to connect globally as well as in their own communities.
I need to say some thank you's for I am very grateful for the help on this trip.
A thank you to Ed Stetzer who came a long with us. He is a good friend and I always learn much when I get to hang out with him some.
I also have to say thanks to Caleb Crider who really did an outstanding job on this trip with his talks about missions and posting on our blog.
I want to thank Scott and his team in Marseille and Jason and his team in Rome for hosting us and making us feel welcome and giving us a great glimpse of these two cities.
We had a great group of people who came along for the journey.
Check out this blog and some cool videos here.
Next on the stop is Asia in September. It looks like we will be going to Taiwan.
We will be in London and Paris next May 2010.

When I returned home I spoke via skype at the Go Conference hosted by Greater Europe Mission. Check out this blog. We are looking into co-sponsoring one of these in the Southeast this August as we search for people who want to live and work in Europe, on Purpose.
I am continuing to formulate some thoughts on partnerships. Thanks for those of you who have sent me some information and material on the subjects of mission partnerships.
