I turned on the computer, http://www.heartsonfireministries.org, popped up and there it was, the COUNTDOWN calendar! Only 11 weeks and 4 days until Branson and 12 weeks and 4 days until Gatlinburg! The excitement is building!!!
Many have called to ask me if they need to get their money in today, and all I can say is, I would begin registration much earlier than normal. In looking at the numbers for registration so far, this is going to be a record breaking year for both conferences! Just to give you an idea compared to last year at this time we have an increase of twice as many for Branson and six times as many for Gatlinburg.
Last week I was talking with Scott about how Satan always throws a curve ball into the planning for Hearts On Fire, but I have to say, he is working overtime this year. He realizes that many hearts and souls are being changed for all eternity by having attended Hearts On Fire, and nothing stirs him up more than that! Begin now to pray for our speakers, Dave Edwards, Ed Newton, Derwin Gray and Clayton King. Pray that God will place the exact message and words on their hearts that He wants them to bring. Many times a speaker will ask what theme we are using, or what passage we want them to preach on, but Scott has always said, “whatever the Lord lays on your heart.” Great advice! You can’t put God in a box!
Have you been watching the music charts? Congratulations to Casting Crowns and for King & Country who both have top 10 songs! Like I said, this is going to be a GREAT year!
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. This is my favorite time of year and I love hearing from you. Oh, by the way when we put up the new website this year we lost your comments that had been previously posted on the website. We need to hear from you! Let us know what you think about Hearts On Fire.
We know lives are going to be changed at HOF 2012, and we can’t wait!
