Waving Good Bye To Wonderful New Hampshire!

Hey Siestas! God met with us in New Hampshire! He brought together three thousand people to the University in Durham to praise His Name and study 2 Corinthians 4. I could have stayed with them for a month, I loved them so much. I was so touched to get to the arena yesterday afternoon for sound check and prayer and find two college students, Heidi and Jessica, prayer walking the room, believing God to touch some of their classmates. We got to pray together for a few minutes and it meant the world to me. They are mighty young women of God and I was astounded by their commitment to Him on their campus.

Their prayers prepared a place, not only for students, but for the rest of us. Travis and the team led us with such power and grace before God’s Throne. The Lord led me to take a little more time to get to know the group in the beginning because He knew I was so sad to leave Vermont so quickly when I felt like we’d hardly had time to say hello. We’d looked forward to it for so long and it was over in a second it seemed. I pray God will let us return to that beautiful State some time. And maybe in October.

I only have two seconds because we had a late night (long altar time, praise You, Jesus) and an early morning. I have to be ready in 40 minutes to get in the van and head to New York City for our play-day. I’m sitting here in my jammies. Please pray for our safe travel today. Five hours to NYC and another three to Delaware. I will certainly have a few things to tell you about this play-day with my wild team when I’m able to get on-line next. Thank you so much for being part of our journey!

Pray for God to prepare a place for His Presence in Delaware! We can’t wait to meet our group!

    I just finished reading the prayer from a few days ago. I can’t begin to tell you how it ministered to me, specifically, like it was meant just for me. Thank you for letting God work through you. I am going through an EXTREMELY difficult time, though I am sure I am not the only one. And I am trying to keep the faith, but it is hard. Again, thank you.

    What an awesome meeting with those students to pray! I have even more hope for the future generations, when I see these young ones with a heart to pray. God bless them.

    Praying for your day–for fun and saftey and health and your families.

    My best friend and I were in Vermont and New Hampshire with you. Wow! Thank you so much for revitalizing two weary souls. You have caused me to reinvest in my ministry 100%. What a great trip we had! Thanks for sharing so much of yourself with us.

    Thank you so much for being in NH last night. What an amazing time of corporate worship we had! Our Father must have been so pleased to hear His children worshipping Him. I felt God was speaking to me to be dying daily so someone else may see Him and begin to LIVE in Him. What a challenge! It will be only through HIS grace and for HIS GLORY that it will be accomplished. Praise you, Jesus! Thank you, Beth

    Hi LPM,

    Last night’s meeting was really fantastic. My mom, sister and I all went together. The talk was full of all kinds of inspiring, moving and joyful words. It reaffirmed to me that it is time to “stand up” after having been knocked down for 1.5 years by autism, betrayals and deep losses. Thank you for the encouragement.

    I loved how at the end, with the last of the worship dying away, how still everyone was. The Lord was there bringing healing to so many. When you see a sea of New England ladies, all in a group, standing there quietly and not leaving or moving – that is usually what is going on. (smile)

    We loved having you visit us! Come back soon!

    A group of 30 or so women just started your Stepping Up series last week here in Los Angeles. I’ve been away from the blog for about a week, but God put you on my heart all this week as I’ve been face down (like you asked us to be in the study) in prayer before Him. So glad to see the reason for His leading me to pray specifically for you and your ministry.

    Thank you for being such a humble servant and such a blessing to so many.

    Grace and peace,

    I was there last night and the time of worship and study was really incredible! Thank you for taking the time to get to know us. I was not only encouraged but also exhorted to get on my knees and pray for the leading of the Spirit for the woman that I see when I look in the mirror. It reminds me of that switchfoot song – “this is your life, are you who you wanna be?”

    Thank you for the exhortation and for delivering it with such love and passion. I wish I had kept track of the songs that we sang together because I really felt as if the band lead worship in such a way that exfoliated the dead skin off of my heart and prepared me to receive the message.

    Looking forward to seeing how God uses this in my life!

    Beth and team,
    I was in the fourth row back on stage right last night and was touched as always through your music, teaching etc…
    My favorite part was before everything started, my friend, Heidi, came to tell me that her and Jessica got to pray over the seats in the sanctuary yesterday with you! Thanks for joining them-they will always remember your love for them. They are both true women of the WORD and we are all so proud of their stand for the Lord.

    Beth, it meant the world to me, too. I think a Hand bigger than ours was dictating yesterday, there are so many wonderful stories already of what He’s done! Thank you for your faithfulness to Him, and your love for us.

    Oh, it all sounds like fun! I pray that you have a fun time in NYC – I’m not sure that you could be someplace and not have fun though! The two college girls prayer walking the room was really touching and a great idea for events of any type – where we pray for spiritual eyes to be open and hearts to be changed. Sounds like an amazing journey!!!

    I so loved that Jessica and Heidi were prayer walking the room to pray for their fellow sisters. It is something that our choir of 50 members does each time we have a concert. We prayer walk the sanctuary and touch each pew. We pray for each soul that will enter the room that their heart will be stirred by Jesus and open to God’s word. It is so uplifting to know that these young women have such a heart for their fellow students.

    Praying for all of you and your continued sowing of the seed. May there be a Harvest in New England like none other before. Can’t wait to hear what message he has in store for me in Connecticut on Friday.

    Many blessings and much love to you all.

    Luv2Praise, Lori

    As I post this comment it is 10pm in NYC…so I hope that you had a fun play day and are resting soundly by now!
    I am so glad to hear that everything went well in New Hampshire. And how awesome that you got to meet those two young prayer warriors! They were probably pretty excited to meet you too Bethie!
    Continuing to pray for you!

    I have to say WOW and THANK YOU! I was at your NH meeting. God is so cool! I needed chapter 4, not 3, or 5! I am in full time ministry, but have been down, trying to get up, or so I thought. You made me realize I have the power thru Jesus to fight harder and that I MUST fight harder! Today, I have felt stronger, more empowered and more determined to put that nasty enemy OUT of my life! I have too much work to do for the Saviour to waste another day!. My prayer for you is that God will keep you strong and healthy so you will be able to continue reminding women that God is our strength and we are powerful through Him!

    After attending your event at the whittemore Center last evening the “God Squad” our women’s prayer group, of the Center Harbor Christian Church in Center Habor, New Hampshire,received a double blessing!

    Beth you touched many lives here in New Hampshire and my girls and I are still feeling the in-dwelling of the Holy Spirit 24 hours later.

    God is blessing you and your overflow is pouring out on all who are graced with your presence!!

    Thank you, thank you for picking New Hampshire!! Thank you for Melissa Wilson who prayed over our women’s ministry at the end of your ministy!

    Melissa you are a beautiful and lovely women of God and we thank you for your sincere and loving blessing and the power of God’s protection over our prayer group. God bless you for encouraging us to go deeper!!!! I promise we will keep you and your family in our prayers!

    We love you Beth (and your worship team)! We were very proud to witness the 64 people from Meredith who attended your event. Our little prayer group made it a total of 71 from Meredith, NH.

    When you come back (Meredith is beautiful all year round), we would love to extend our homes to you and your worship team.

    God is good all the time and we give him praise and thanks for your ministry! All for God’s Glory!

    God bless you and keep you (and your worship team) safe. And may he bless your families with the joy and desires of your heart upon your return home.

    Beth, we had such an amazing time in Durham with you! It was so worth the 12 hour drive on a bus with 37 women (that really was a blast!) We had hoped extra people could come with us so I purchased 45 tickets. I was able to give the left over tickets to our wonderful chef at the hotel and she found some friends to bring along!
    I want to commend the lifeway team. They were so kind and helpful around the book selling area where students were coming and going. I saw some students heading into the fitness center – not the auditorium – stop to look at the materials and your team welcomed them so beautifully. God os so great- never know where seeds will be dropped.
    Thanks for sacrificing your time with your darling first born to be with us!

    I love that you added pictures!!! I read this last night and as always you put a smile on my face and cracked me up… My husband looked at me strangely and said what are you reading!?! =) ha ha
    I am praying for the women who will attend and hear your message and maybe even hear the Word for the first time ever! May God move in a mighty way!!!! I also pray protection over all of you there…
    Thank you for being such a faithful servant Beth (and the rest of the crew) and for encouraging us in the Word!

    Beth – I feel just like I have been in the van and on the trip with y’all! What fun – oh Beth, you look like you are having the time of your life. I am so very happy and have prayed for all the girls in the conferences – oh may His Name be praised!

    You are so very precious to me! I absolutely love New York City, and especially love the Brooklyn Tabernacle and the people there. I went to New York for a music conference with my husband and we were blessed to attend one of their choir rehearsals and sing in the choir on Sunday – oh it was marvelous.

    Be blessed my sister,
    Georgia Jan

    Beth, Words cannot express the gratitude I feel that God would allow me to serve for one night with Life Way. I was truly blessed by you and the staff Tuesday night. I worked at the book tables. The Holy Spirit was ministering there and I was able to pray with ladies who were feeling guilt, sorrow, shame and lonliness. God truly set some ladies free that night!!
    Thank you for this opportunity.
    Thank you too for your obedience to the calling that God has for you. Your words, through the power of the Holy Spirit, set me free from wrong thinking! I CAN actually be struck down but not destroyed Hallelujah!
    Satan got a black eye that night!
    I hope you enjoyed the coffee!
    I love you in the Lord and will be praying for you and your family. I join you in prayer on my knees especially for your unsaved loved ones.

    How jealous I am!!! My husband and I used to travel every fall to the New England area for a long weekend. We absolutely love it there. The people and of course “the food!!!!!” Thanks so much for sharing this trip with us. We are living New England through your precious eyes these next few days.

    OH GOD…do what you do!!!! Praise Him!!

    Blessings to you all,

    I loved reading this post! I envy your energy so very much! Seems like I am dragging all the time now!
    I never realized just how very much Amanda favors you until I saw the picture of you in the pink shirt with the fall leaves in your hands!

    Thanks for including us in your New England trip!

    The very first picture of Travis and Beth remind me of what the lepers must have felt like when Jesus healed them.
    I know the scripture says that only one of the ten came back to thank Him, but I tend to give them a little grace on that. I am not so sure that it wasn’t because they weren’t thankful, but more because they were so ecstatic that they went jumping and leaping for joy!!!
    Anyway, you two are jumping and leaping for joy in Jesus and that picture really makes me smile.

    I love Jesus so much He makes me jump for joy, too!!!

    Hello Beth,
    I don’t know if you ever get to read these but wanted to write. This is my first blog ever ~ to anyone! I am so behind the times.
    Just wanted you to know that I was sharing something out of “Patriarchs” recently. I said to my buddy, “My friend Beth said…” Then I started laughing since I’ve never met you. The way that you teach makes you seem real and present even across the tv screen.
    Now “My friend Beth said…” is our new saying in our women’s group. I thought that you would get a kick out of knowing that you have about 60 new friends.
    Thanks for all that you do to make Jesus more real to us.
    I have a freedom that I never knew was possible!
