We just had a most refreshing Staff Retreat last week! Now I’m about to embark in a couple of weeks of intense ministry and travel. I have briefly outlined it all in the attached Update. Please be praying for me as I minister to various groups and individuals. I covet your prayers on my behalf!
Please let me know how I can be praying for you!
He is risen! He is risen indeed!
As I contemplate the coming of Good Friday and Easter, I find my mind going back to those very streets of Jerusalem that I walked just a couple of years ago… the path that Jesus took to the cross. And I am overcome by His sacrifice for me… for all of us.
Because of Him, I am part of God’s family (Eph. 1:5) and I get to be a minister of reconciliation for His Kingdom (2 Cor. 5:17)! And in His goodness, He lets me minister to people here in the US as well as those precious little girls in India. I’ve had some exciting things going on in that arena, so make sure to read my little blurb about that. (more…)
I hope you had a safe and happy Fourth of July. I spent my holiday in New Orleans (Nola), which was an awesome week of ministry to youth and leaders.
And now I’m looking forward to leaving for India in four days! Oh my goodness – is it really almost time? I can’t wait to wrap my arms around those little ones again! If you would like to help me with the last few details of the trip, there is still time. You can sign up to pray or give online: http://www.infusionnow.org/IndiaMission2012.html.
Below you will find the details of my trip to Nola, as well as how you can be praying for me and supporting me as I journey to India. (more…)
I realized that I haven’t posted a Thankful Thursday in a few weeks. But with unexpected and expected travel lately, I didn’t have much access to a computer. So here’s the most recent edition!
This week I am thankful…
1. That God comforts us in times of sorrow. The Bible is full of examples of God comforting His people, and 2 Corinthians 1:3 calls God “the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort.” I was especially thankful for this at the death of my uncle two weeks ago.
2. For new experiences. I got to travel to New Orleans last week to be on a prayer team for a youth event, and it was an awesome week! The conference was amazing, God showed up, I worshiped with 5,400 people, the city was interesting, and the food was delish! (Two words: alligator and beignets! Yum!)
3. That when we pray and ask God to show up… He does! He showed up in so many ways last week at the conference. It was so encouraging to see everyone responding to His love as He met us where we were.
I love summer around here because of everything that happens. We even have an unexpected trip planned to New Orleans now! I’m excited about the ministry we get to do there, with youth and another local ministry that is there. I’ve never been to New Orleans, so this will be a new experience for me! I am looking forward to trying a famed beignet, too.
India is only a month out! I have a little team going with me, and I am excited about them experiencing India. If you would like to give towards the trip, the girls, or pray for us you can sign up here: http://www.infusionnow.org/IndiaMission2012.html (more…)
