I write on a Friday night sitting at my laptop boiling over in excitement over what lies ahead five months (ten days and one hour) from now. So far 16 of you have joined in on our endeavour to Passion ’07. What lies ahead you ask? Here’s a comment I read on Louie’s blog:
“I tried to describe Passion to someone, and all I could do was hug them and then say that that was just the first 30 min., there were still four days to go.”
You are in for an experience of a lifetime. For those of you who have been to BigStuf, nothing can compare to this…NOTHING! This is especially for you college students; those of us who are trying to find our place. Most who I have talked to about Passion ’06 are still trying to recover from the toll it took on their hearts. I am literally almost in tears now with excitement.
Now moving forward. Hotel payments have started to come in. Those of you who have payed or started a downpayment know who you are. You may notice some names are bold on the list. I am doing this only for registrations, so we will know which of you to jump on as time progresses and the registration fills up! Speaking of registrations, at 7|22 last Tuesday Louie Giglio (YES! HE WAS AT NORTH POINT!!!) said that as of Tuesday July 18th 6,800 had registered for Passion. He said that a year ago when people were registering for Passion ’06, only 2,500 had registered. That says something, huh?
BTW, here is a quick list of how far everything is from our hotel:
Georgia State Univ. 5 Blocks
Atlanta Civic Center 8 Blocks
Atlanta CNN Center 9 Blocks
Philips Arena 9 Blocks
Underground Atlanta 1 Mile
Georgia Dome 1.2 Miles
World of Coca-Cola 1.5 Miles
Piedmont Park 2.6 Miles
Turner Field 3 Miles
Zoo Atlanta 3 Miles
SO for those of you who have yet to register, no worries, you have till August 18th to pay or work out a payment deal with me. Registration can wait as long as you desire, knowing that the price will go up $20 in mid-September.
Call me if you need anything!
