Friday November 2, 2007

I woke up today in Dana Point, California. I flew here yesterday from Houston to be with the President’s Council for the Luis Palau Association.

Luis Palau is known around the world as a man of God, a brilliant evangelist and a man who is unafraid to address any part of the culture with the loving truth of Christ. I’ve known him and have worked with him for years. In the beginning, I was a part of some of his crusades. They were held in large arenas that would seat from 10 to 15 thousand people. A few years back, Luis transitioned to a festival format that has been wildly successful.

The ‘CityFest” model draws hundreds of thousands wherever they go. The Luis Palau Association sends in a team to live in the host city for a year prior to the event. It’s a remarkable plan that involves the cooperation of churches of all evangelical faiths.
By the time Luis hits town with the some of the most well known names in Christian and popular music, the place is ready to rock. God has blessed this man and his team.

I’m here to share with a small gathering of his warriors. The inner circle that holds Luis up in prayer is here along with some of his major supporters.

It’s not often that I leave Houston and come to California regretting the weather I left in Texas. Right now in southern California, the smoke has yet to clear from the devastating fires that have burning for weeks. There is a lingering haze. But still, as you can see, not a bad place to land for a few days.

I’m so thankful for the new ways of communicating with all of you that have been so supportive. The new website is off and running and already, a mass of people have gone on to buy both of the new records. Thank you all!

Have a great weekend.

Will miss seeing you at Church in the morning. I really enjoy your Music Ministry on Sunday mornings. I moved to Humble a few years ago from San Diego, so I know that you are enjoying yourself in Dana Point this weekend! It is so beautiful there. Have a great time!!

Hi Wayne, Caryn Ogle here. We sh ared a cab on the way to the Dana Point conference. I have enjoyed reading your blog this afternoon. Great reminders about priorities and majoring on the important stuff, especially this time of year. Sounds like you had a great time at the taping of the Hell's Kitchen show. I'm wondering if your friend Keith is familiar with a ministry called Mastermedia. It is a great organization that encourages believers in the entertainment business in Hollywood and New York. It would be worth checking into.

My real reason for contacting you is that my 14 year old daughter wants a guitar for Christmas. I am clueless when it comes to guitars and wonder if you might recommend any particular brand of "starter" guitar for her. Any input you have would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Wayne.
Sincerely, Caryn Ogle
