A Big Heart

I first met Rick Warren in 1990 while attending one of his earliest Purpose Driven courses for church leaders. Since then he has personally trained over 400,000 leaders worldwide.

Rick was in Brazil at the church where our ministry is based. Being near this man of God 18 years later it became immediately obvious that his heart has grown and grown. Not only is Rick a big man physically, he is a man with a heart for the world.

Needless to say I was impressed and blessed. His influence here in Brazil is enormous and he has only visited the country twice and has been on Brazilian soil for not even two weeks. God uses people with a big heart.
