Last month our interns served at an outreach in the DC area. While there, they met up with author/pastor/leader/thinker/twitterer, Mark Batterson. Mark lived here in Springfield for a few years while in college and from what he tells us, enjoys Andy’s Frozen Custard. Why am I blogging about him?
1. He took an hour out of his schedule to meet with our interns. They drank coffee and talked about life. He really poured into them. Many have mentioned that it’s a highlight of their internship. Thank you Mark.
He also gave us copies of his books In A Pit With a Lion on a Snowy Day and Wild Goose Chase. We’ll keep a copy of each in our intern house for the future generations of interns to read around the world. Thanks for these as well.
2. He has a new book, Primal, coming out soon. His publisher is giving away 500 copies to bloggers who agree to review it. I submitted my name and this blog and would love to give my meticulously and beautifully worded review of the work. Plus, I’d love a free copy of what I know will be some great reading.
Hence, this post.
1. Thanks Mark!
2. I pray Primal impacts a lot of people.
PS: Thanks Randy Whitlow for the heads up on this opportunity.
