Our dear friend Scott Marques flew in from Zimbabwe yesterday morning, and it was great to catch up with him over breakfast. Even after a long flight and very little sleep, Scott never fails to bring his usual enthusiasm and positive energy! Our conversation ranged from catching up on family news and what is happening at both King’s and River of Life churches, to the political situation in Zimbabwe and developments in Scott’s crocodile and egg businesses – it is always stimulating spending time with this guy!
Scott will be spending the next four days with us at King’s and will be meeting with our staff and the Zimbabwe Partnership Team. I am very excited that he will also be speaking at our Kingdom Investment Seminar on Saturday morning. As well as leading River of Life in Harare and the DNA family of churches, Scott is a successful business entrepreneur and leader. The morning seminar presents a great opportunity to come and hear Scott’s story and catch his heart for finding kingdom opportunities in every area of our lives. The seminar is open to all and will run from 9.45-11.30am at our Catford site.
I am also glad to tell you that Scott will be our guest speaker on Sunday, which is Diversity Sunday at King's. King’s is committed to building a community made up of people from many different nations, races, ages and backgrounds, and this is a moment when we celebrate our diversity together. The service will be slightly different to normal and we would love everyone to come wearing national/traditional dress or to dress up a bit smarter than usual. I will be marking the occasion by bringing out my suit! I hear there are a variety of different things being planned, so I really encourage everyone to be there and not miss out.
We have an exciting weekend ahead at King’s, and I look forward to seeing you there.
