Final Roll Call for Completed Summer Study!!!

Hey, Siestas! It’s time for that final roll call I told you last week to expect! Today I’d like every INDIVIDUAL who finished all her “No Other Gods” homework to sign in with her name and location. THE ONLY COMMENTS TO THIS SPECIFIC POST ARE THOSE CHECKING IN TO SAY THEY FINISHED. My goal is that the number of comments we have to this post will be an accurate count of the women who completed the study. Again, no condemnation for those who didn’t! Just want to give a huge shout out to those who did. It’s kinda like getting your “A” at the end of the semester.

THE NEXT POST, however, is for EVERYBODY who participated in any portion of the summer Bible study whether or not you completed your homework. It’s a letter to all of you from our beloved teacher, Kelly Minter. You are welcome to respond straight to her on that one and I feel confident she’ll grab a Starbucks and drink in every word. Be sure to watch the length so they’re reader friendly.

While you’re at it today, enjoy this picture of those darling women with perfect attendance from Washington State who “won” all the kitchen goodies. Aren’t y’all just the cutest things? Would you believe that God was so fun to make their prizes arrive on the Bible study day when I showed you all the items on video? I love Him like crazy.

I’m so not kidding when I say that I love you.

PS. As I prepare to leave work, we’ve already had well over 300 Siestas answer the roll call to say they finished! WAY TO GO, Girls!!! I’m so proud of you I can hardly stand it. You have God’s promise that not one word will return void. Keep signing in, Siestas, until we have a final count so our spirits can be encouraged and our celebrations sweet!

    A little late, but DONE! This summer my husband lost his job, that ment we had to move(2,500 sqft house to 900 sqft rental) and I gave up my part time job, we had to stop homeschooling, the kiddos went to public school for the first time ever and I have to go to work after 11 years as a stay-at-home mom and we have major turmoil in our church. I have been pruned and sifted! God removed so many idols from my life and then gave me this study to show me why. Beth and Kelly- what an amazing blessing you have been to me in a crazy time of change. God has a plan for all of this and I am so amazed he counts me worthy of it.

    Ok, WEll I am not finished. I have a trip coming up that involves around 24 hour plane ride – so I am taking the last weeks for my plane ride. I love studing the bible in the air! So that is why I have not signed in yet! I have loved the study. Great fun with God and the other three ladies.

    I finished the study a few weeks ago – not a blogger so missed the roll call – while I was not heavily convicted about specific false gods at this time in my walk – I think the Lord will use what was planted in the study in an on-going fashion. Here I was the other day starting homeschool, Community Bible Study leadership, and part-time consulting work (not to mention wife and mother) really convicted as I felt the Lord say to my heart -what about “Making room” for Him. Whoa – where’s the room? And caught a moment of a teaching on TV – “Your service isn’t for yourself, or others, but for Jesus.” I forget that as I run from obligation to obligation…Katherine Lynchburg, VA
