The rush before Russia...

On Monday I got invited by my friends Deyl and Ashley to attend an event with Tony Blair and Tom Barrack who is this mega billionaire and what an incredible experience that was! I snapped this pic of Tom before getting scolded about "no photos"

They talked about "Faith and Reconciliation in a time of Global Interdependence" and it really opened up my eyes to the necessity of collaboration and leadership.

Ashley, works with Tom and also does event planning and she just sent me a list of Tom's Rules for Success and they are great! I'll be sending them out to everyone who is part of my new Facebook page....and if you haven't joined yet you should and be sure to checkout the fun video I posted there yesterday.



...and tomorrow I get to go hear what the Dalai Lama has to share about "Ethics in our Time"

Then late tomorrow night I'm heading to Russia!

Ahhhh!

I haven't even started packing! I'll be there till mid May and am excited to learn about the culture and what God is doing there.

Phew....my mind is spinning!

So much to do - so many places to go. I have lots to learn!
