Deanna and I were able to get away TOGETHER this year for Foursquare’s big Connection event in Hawaii. We had such an amazing time! We caught a luau with hula and fire dancers at the opening session and Hawaiian feast, ate great cultural food from food trucks and hole-in-the-wall restaurants, visited the beach several times, snorkeled, hiked Diamond Head, rented a boogie board and held each other’s hand and kissed — a lot!

I loved it. A lot.

Here’s some of our highlights…

Foursquare Connection was one of my favorites in recent years as well. There were 3,000 Foursquare pastors and leaders from 49 states and 51 different countries attending. I really connected with the worship team this year and the speakers all seemed to be speaking directly into my heart. In addition, I had the opportunity to catch up with the other district NextGen Reps for breakfast Tuesday morning. I’m looking forward to re-watching some of the general sessions the next couple weeks. So good!

Here’s their quick highlights video from the week…

I’m very blessed. Now off to Cedaredge, CO, for two weeks of summer camps!
