Selected Tweets from GAFCON II - Day 3 (October 23, 2013)

Posted by The_Elves

Since the GAFCON conference delegates broke up into smaller "mini-conferences" today, it's less easy to get a feel for what transpired. No plenary transcripts or videos. The Twitterverse gives a good overview of the day and glimpses of some of the mini-conferences. It's also good to get a taste of the preaching on Ephesians 2.
