I writing this from the floor of the GAC meeting. We have completed the budget and staffing decisions for implementing the new mission work plan. The decision has been made to reduce the GAC budget by more than nine million dollars. If you check media outlets you will likely see the budget numbers by objective. (I don’t have time today to type that up for you.) I can’t share the details with you until Monday afternoon, after staff have been informed. I will have more to write then. I will tell you now that despite the short term trauma the changes being made are very positive and there is more positive change to come.
Thank you to all those of you who have been praying for the General Assembly Council these last few days! It has been a real blessing to me and others who have been here making very difficult decisions.
