*Convention Messengers note at the bottom of this post
I am up at 5:00 Eastern (4:00 my time)and being reprimanded by Missionaries for nothing new since 1:00 am last night. What’s a guy to do?
I wasn’t there for this, but it was reported to me by almost everyone I know that Joyce Rogers, Mother of Missionary David and Widow of Adrian, spoke to the convention last night. I heard that she emphatically called for cooperation, saying that her late husband fought for the standard of cooperation to be the Bible and the BFM as the umbrella covering us all. At one point, the house erupted in response to this call.
As I said, I wasn’t there, so I may have to pick that up on video at SBC.net.
Wes said Ed Stetzer gave me a less than flattering description when I was publicly harassing him about taking the job at NAMB. I don’t really remember it so Wes is free to post it here. (This was all in good fun, folks. The YLS was a lot of great fellowship, and I appreciate Ed and the work he is doing. I have “Breaking the Missional Code” in my bag right now.
Now I am off to the Founder’s Breakfast at 6:30 am (Eastern!!!) on about 4+ hours of sleep.
*For all those at the convention

Now I’m late for breakfast. Gotta go.
