Out of the fire and into the frying pan! Just two days after my return from Africa we engaged in a conference at the Ranch. Friends and ministry partners from all over the country gathered for four days of intense meetings, fellowship, counseling, and worship to our King. The theme seemed to be coming out of the desert and into the promises. Al Houghton spoke on being a Champion of faith and Rex Bryant shared with us on removing self-pity. The Lord began uncovering how the desert mentality produces an entitlement mindset that must be removed in order to become a conqueror. I was personally blessed by all of the harmony this conference produced in us.
