We already posted this photo from the airport. It was so cool - there was a giant welcome banner for worship leaders coming to Austin for the conference AT THE AIRPORT!
Here's a couple of other observations we made:
- We haven't seen one person in Austin wearing a cowboy hat. I thought this was Texas!
- Everyone here speaks normally. I haven't heard any Southern accents (except from visitors to Austin). Go figure
- Austin seems to have a crazy road system. When the car rental place at the airport asked us if we wanted a car with GPS, I thought "we don't need any frills." But the road system is seriously confusing. It seems like all the major streets run parallel and right next to the freeways - and none of them have street signs! I can never figure out what street we're on.
I can really say that some people are anointed to lead other before the throne of God - Matt Redman and Paul Baloche were outstanding. Early tomorrow we start our first full day with 3 General Session and 2 Workshops.
Well, that's it for now. Miss you guys, but having fun.
