I extended greetings to the congregation from myself and my family and I spoke briefly about the conference to invite people to sign up. Speaking on an open platform took some getting used to -- especially the acoustics and the fact that the screens are high overhead where I cannot see them. I'll be sure to ask for a head microphone and a floor monitor when I return. I think I will also schedule some practice time in the auditorium a day or two before the event.
As soon as the worship service ended, I headed to the pastor's office for a quick meal and rest before my next round of meetings. I also tried on my new Barong Tagalog - a gift from the people of COP. (Thank you!)
