So this is where we go each week for Hillsong Church, the Cape Town International Convention Center. It's a cool place to be and right in the heart of Cape Town.
This past Sunday we didn't have church there (but in the Westin Hotel that is the high-rise right behind the CTICC) because the Lausanne Congress is meeting there for eight days. Unfortunately you only can come to the conference if you have an invitation, which we do not, and I'm only a tiny bit bitter about... No, you have to be like REALLY important to have an invite, so maybe next time :) Instead we are going to one of the live link offerings by video being offered around the city. We will be going to the Bible Institute in Kalk Bay, where this will be our backdrop, so not a bad deal, really.
We will be going to the link Tuesday and Wednesday morning to hear parts of the conference and then on Thursday we will go to a speaking event by the author and pastor Tim Keller about church and mission. That will be with him LIVE and with other great leaders in our town, so that should be fun! Overall, it will be a great week of learning and connecting and we are excited. We will keep you posted with what we learn and who we meet!
