As I write this short update, I can see the first students start to arrive for our annual CMDA Northeast Winter Conference. As always, this weekend is one of excitement and anticipation as 150 healthcare students and professionals gather together for teaching, fellowship, worship and refreshment.
I’ll provide a fuller update next week, but for now, please pray that God:
- gives us hearts that are receptive and ready to meet with him;
- helps me connect meaningfully with those who attend, and particularly with those from Philadelphia;
- that God empowers Dr. Joseph Harvey as he speaks on “Reverse Course: Backing Up To Move Forward”. Using Genesis 50 as his starting point, Dr. Harvey hopes to challenge students and professionals to step back from the intense world of medicine, remembering God and His promises, so that they can again move forward with passion.
- that the work God accomplishes here would not stay here, but rather be transforming as we return home. Pray that God would give me discernment as I seek to follow-up in the weeks ahead.
We expect that God already has big plans for our time here. I can’t wait to share with you how it all unfolds!
