MTS Preaching to the the Heart Conference

Yesterday I went to the MTS Preachers Conference at Moore College, it was really awesome. David Jones, Murray Capill and Richard Wilson all spoke and then I went to a Women's seminar which Claire Smith spoke at. I didn't bring my notes in today but I will write up more about what they had to say tomorrow or Friday.

How amazing it is to have a job where you can sit and learn under God's word. It is a great priviledge.

I also got to hang out with the MTS guys from CIM which was fun.

Anyhoo, will write more tomorrow about what I learnt.

Yes .. talking to Sam yesterday it sounds like it was a great day. Strangely it's things like this I miss the most not doing MTS anymore!

Thats not strange Kymmy. I love those types of things, I did get a headache later though, all that concentrating. Claire Smith did a great job of some of those "women" passages, gave me a fresh way of looking at some of them. Will write more later this week. Would be great to catch up soon?

I didn't realise, Nix, that you were contemplating MTS. I think you'd be good at it.

Thanks Haydn, but I was working at the conference not going as a potential MTS person. How long til you go away? Have you flown Korean Airlines before, we are flying back to England with them at Christmas.

Hey Nix, I can't WAIT to go over. Was going to book with Korean Air, but had do do it through a travel agent, so I'm flying with Singapore instead. I fly out on the 10th of July :)

It was so good. My favourite quote from the conference, a quote from Lloyd Jones: "A man who doesn't prepare is a fool. A man who relies on his preparation is an even bigger fool".
That, and "Don't practice your sermons. Pray through them, line by line."
