It’s Finally Here! The Siesta Fiesta!

Yahoo-Jah! Amanda and I are packing a few last things this very second and Melissa is already at the airport in Atlanta. It’s Siesta Fiesta Time in San Antonio, Texas!! We are beside ourselves to see all of you who can come and will miss every last one of you that can’t. We’re going to raise the roof of praise in the Alamo Dome, do some synchronized diving into the glad river of Scripture then hug us as many Siesta necks as we can at our Saturday afternoon gathering!

We promise to bring back plenty of pictures so all of you can see some of the faces of sisters you’ve been blogging the faith with. (We blog by faith. Not by sight.)

Until then, the most important thing you could possibly do to lock arms with us is PRAY and, needless to say, not just for your dear Siestas but for every single person God will draw into His Presence. He has given me Ephesians 2:21-22 to pray for this event. I’d be so honored for you to agree with me in it:

Lord, cause the WHOLE BUILDING to join together and rise to become a holy temple in You. And in You let us all be built together to become a DWELLING IN WHICH YOU LIVE BY YOUR SPIRIT!

Wave the banner of Jesus’ Name over San Antonio, Abba Father.

I love all of you so much. Fight the good fight, young ladies. Fight the good fight!!

    Oh How I wish I was there. I pray you all will be blessed with Word and fellowship. Please pray for my husband Hugh as he is in the hospital this weekend. I hope all you siestas continue to encourage Melissa's teaching ministry – maybe face to face we can encourage her more. God's richest blessings on you all- I pray for God to truly show up & show out this weekend!

    Can I ask you, what do you think is up with Ephesians? I have been led to the book for a whole month now…and I know it seems you have to..If you could share what He is speaking to you..that’d be awesome:)

    Anyway, much love and safe trip to everyone going to the Siesta Fiesta;)

    Jen, Linds, Shelly, Suzi, Janice, Bev, Kate…and so many others:) Love you lots..wish I was able to hug your necks!

    God definitely didn’t want me going for whatever reason this time around…matter of fact, I wasnt’ able to go anywhere….

    I originally couldn’t go to the Siesta Fiesta, and had to give my ticket away. So then I figured I would visit my friend in Georgia by train..then I get a phone call by my friend two days before to tell me I have to cancel the trip because her mananger went on leave, and she had to cover…and not only that but on top of that…Tropical Storm Fay canceled my trip anyway…so its been fun.

    Be Blessed:) HAVE FUN FOR ME!!!!

    I’m praying for each person that hears your message. I was surely blessed when I attended in Louisville just a few weeks ago.
    I found your blog a few days before that event and this is my first entry. I’m grateful to have all your comments and the responses of the siestas to encourage me each day.
    Teach on Beth, teach on!

    Beth,I so appreciate the way you constantly give all the glory to God ! He has used you in ways beyond imagination! Some people would start claiming some of the glory for themselves but I’m glad that you’re not one of them.

    Have funj!

    Lord, please give everyone safe travel and bless each person who attends. Protect Beth as she teaches, and the entire team. Shower the city with your Holy presence.
    In our excitement over this, please help us remember those who are attending who do not know you, who are suffering, and who need to hear your good news.
    Help them to find you this weekend.

    Wishing all you siestas the best time in the Lord!

    Lord, I just pray your hand on each precious one you have called to be at this event. May they hear every word you say to them from your servant our dear Beth. May they be your Holy Temple this evening, and may you dwell in each and everyone of them.

    Lord, give the siestas a wonderful time of fellowship with Beth, Amanda, Melissa and each other. We thank you in advance for all you will accomplish. In the mighty name of Jesus! Amen

    I am so excited for all of the siesta’s that are anxiously, with butterflies in their stomachs, awaiting the first Siesta Fiesta! I am praying for lasting friendships to be built this weekend. I am believing God that my time will come – just not at this gathering. I can’t wait to hear all of the glorious details!
    I am smiling here in Ohio for each of you!

    I am unable to attend this weekend but my prayers are with you! There is a group of us blogging on Believing God! Wow. I had not done this one before and it thrills my soul! The word of the Lord penetrates so deeply like boiling water to remove impurities. Indeed this living book is as revealed in 2 Timothy 3:16-17, “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

    Ok, I am so jealous, envious, coveting this time yu’all will be having. Father forgive me!! Maybe someday us Northern girls will get together like this. Yu’all have a great time and God’s richest blessings over everyone. May you touch lives that never expected to be touched this weekend.
