We Converged!

I want to take a minute and thank all of you who were with us for Converge last Thursday night at the Berry Center. We’re so glad you were there! In case you have no idea what I’m talking about, we were joined by special guests CeCe Winans and Travis Cottrell and his praise team for a night of worship and the Word. It was a wonderful evening and we were so blessed by you! Curtis was our emcee and at one point he asked the people who had never been to an LPM event (like Tuesday night Bible study) to raise their hands. We were thrilled by how many there were. It looked like half to me, but I could be wrong. What a great joy to be able to serve all of you in Jesus’ name!

I’ve had so many sweet friends share with me what the Lord spoke to them that night through Beth’s message. Ladies, isn’t it awesome that we have a God who is active in our lives? Not just when we get to heaven, but NOW? We’re believing Him to work in every person’s life who attended and we’re already praising Him for those testimonies.

A lot of my friends mentioned how neat the stage, lighting and video production were. We contracted some friends from Beth’s Living Proof Live Events (which are done through LifeWay) to help us out with that. They do such an excellent job! It occurred to me that a lot of our girls in Houston have never attended a Living Proof Live event, and that’s totally understandable because we get to study the Word together all the time here at home. But if you really enjoyed the energy and the quality of production of the event – not to mention Travis Cottrell and his awesome praise team – you should look into coming to a Living Proof Live conference in 2009. The conferences are like three sessions of what we did at Converge. Here is a link to the schedule. Our Houston girls will be closest to the El Paso and New Orleans events.

I’d also like our Houston girls to know that a new song from Travis’ Christmas CD has just been added to KSBJ’s Christmas rotation. The song is “Ring the Bells.” It’s one of my favorites. So if you call in and request it, they’ll be able to play it now. If you hear it and love it (which you will!), stop by Travis’ blog and let him know!

We hope many of you will join us this Spring for our Inheritance Bible Study at Houston’s First Baptist Church. We get started on Tuesday, January 13. For more information, visit our Houston Connection page. See you then!

P.S. We’re considering producing a product from the Converge event, but if we decide to do that it will be several months before it will be available for purchase. Thanks so much for your patience!

    Beth isn’t coming to any cities in SC or NC in 2009! 🙁 I was really hoping she was! She came to Columbia, SC (1 hour from me) a couple of years ago and I was jumping up and down on the fourth row!! I’ve also seen her in Charlotte, NC, a couple of times. Oh well…I know I need to share her and Travis with the rest of the country, but I ain’t happy about it! 😉

    That’s it..I’m moving to Houston.
    (Drama Queen here!) Heehee.

    p.s. Tell Beth…2010 to SC or BUST! 🙂

    Hi again Barbara,

    I second Beths comments and reiterate mine to you. If at anytime you may attend The Inheritance study up and coming I would certainly welcome meeting you there. You are blessed and it is truly apparent God is circling the spiritual wagons around you. You ain’t seen nothin’ yet! :o)
    You have truly also seen how valuable Siestaville is for our spiritual well being. Thank you Amanda for spearheading Gods calling for this blogsite and Beth, oh Beth, what can any of us Siestas’ ever say about you that hasn’t been said already.

    Love you Barbara and all of you at LPM!!!!

    Many Blessings,

    Christine Roskamp
    Houston Siesta :o)
