Simulcast, Anyone?? Your Mama Needs to Know

Hey, Siestas! Just a quick update to let you know that each of the ten scholarship tickets are now gone for the Lubbock location where it will be live. We would encourage you to click on the link below to see if you’re still able to join another simulcast location near you. Thank you so much!

Hey, you darling things! I’m just dying to know if any of you are participating in the Living Proof Live simulcast this coming Saturday. (Sept. 10th) God has made you such a huge part of this ministry and given me so much love for you that I wonder if you’re out there every time I serve on the road. Somehow (God alone knows how) you lend a very personal touch, giving me the sense of a close sisterhood even among many unfamiliar faces in that group of participants. It’s that feeling only God can bring where you feel loved and accepted even in all your quirks and mistakes.

SO, are any of you going? (If you don’t know anything about it, see the link at the bottom of this post to check on whether or not a host site is in your area. If so, please contact that location directly about available seating. We’d love to have as many Siestas as possible!) If you’re going, you’ll see three questions in the next paragraph that I’d love for you to answer. First, let me give you a few stats so that you’ll know what’s up. To God’s glory and purpose, there are 731 host locations in all this year. They are sprinkled throughout 48 of our 50 States and – are you ready for this??? – a whopping 31 of those 731 host locations are in CANADA! We were flabbergasted! So grateful to God. We also have host sites in 10 other countries. I’ll share those on Saturday. In addition, our gracious God is granting us the privilege of serving 3 military bases (so dear to this Army brat) and one women’s prison. I am without words to convey what the latter means to me. Many of us women know what it’s like to be imprisoned to something we feel we cannot escape. We are overwhelmed and anxiety-ridden (and grateful, prayerful, mindful) at the prospect of serving this large and very diversified group on Saturday. Our only hope is to be crucified to our own flesh and alive in Christ. Our competency is in Him. We gladly esteem every participant in the presence of Christ as better than ourselves. God alone can accomplish the task we have before us but He did not stir the whole concept up just to pull a no-show. He promises that He will be found by every person who sincerely seeks Him. Siestas, if you have ever prayed for us, pray for us now! We are trusting Jesus with everything in us to minister personally to each of those lives. We are pleading with Him for a demonstration of the Holy Spirit’s power.

Now, for those three questions! The insight you bring me is always gold. If you are participating in the simulcast, would you tell me …
*Your 1st Name?
*The location where you’ll be attending?
*ONE of the biggest things in your life right now? (Please just ONE and please make your description very succinct or I’ll never be able to read all of them. I want so much to look through them to gain insight toward our group on Saturday.)

Siestas, may I ask your sweet understanding and cooperation in limiting our comments to this post just to the ones attending the simulcast this weekend? You know I hate to do that but it will help immensely as I look through the comments to begin formulating a composite of the group on Saturday. Thank you so much!

P.S.  Be sure to hop on the blog tomorrow because I have someone really wonderful I want to introduce to you. You will know her WELL by this time next year!

I’m nuts about you.

P.P.S.  For any Siestas near Lubbock, where the live Simulcast site will be this Saturday, we are humbled to be able to offer ten scholarship tickets to those that would love to join us but just cannot afford a ticket at this time.  Call and ask for Kimberly or Susan at 1-888-700-1999.

      Hi Kristina,

      I attend FBC Allen and am so excited you’ll be coming to the Simulcast on Saturday. I’m not sure if FBC Allen is the new congregation of which you speak, but if it is, it would be wonderful for you to get plugged in at our church through a Bible Fellowship Group. There are plenty of options for adults down to the babies. New members usually check out the “Connections Class” led by our Education Minister and then transition into a BFG (aka Sunday School) that fits their situation best. Prayers for you as you find a new church to call home. I hope our paths cross in the future.

    The longing and desire to be in Full Time Ministry, yet at the same time growing weary in Part Time Ministry because so often I find my hands tied due to time restraints, (since I work a Full Time job in addition to the Part Time Ministry) if that makes sense. I want it all to go toward serving God!

    My name is JoAnn and I will be at the Macedonia Baptist in Owensboro, KY. One thing I am dealing with right now is training my children to have a personal walk with God (2 sons, aged 23 and 21 and 2 daughters, aged 16 and 11). I am encouraging them to transfer their dependence from me to God and see Him, not just as their Saviour but as their LORD. Can’t wait to see you and hear what God has put on your heart. You are an awesome mentor for me! Praying God will use you in a powerful way on Saturday.

    It is an hour drive (No hosts in SYR), but I am grateful to be able to go, looking forward to it!

    3. Issue – I hate going to my church and absolutely DREAD the thought of spending another winter here, but I don’t see God opening up any doors in the south yet. Do I just step out in faith and head that way? So I guess my issue is knowing God’s will -or worse case -how to wait in current frustrating situations.

    See you Saturday!

    *ONE of the biggest things in your life right now? spiritual warfare – I don’t want to get any more specific than that because it would not bring Him glory to broadcast any details out. =)

    Sorry but I also want to throw in…I think I am bringing my 10 year old daughter…she has been begging to come see you speak for several years. Funny story this week – her Sunday night class is doing your kids version of Jesus – the One and Only and my 7 year old son hollered out “hey y’all that’s Ms Beth”…like you were part of our family…the other kids were clueless but mine spotted your perfect hair a mile away! Thanks for being one of us!!!

    ONE of the biggest things in my life right now is dealing with the fact that I have a senior in high school and I only have a few more months with him until he goes off to college. I have many insecurities and fears like…”did we do everything we could to lay the best foundation possible for him or have we just royally messed him up?” And I am already feeling the anxiety of having a huge void in my home. He is such a presence that it’s killing me to think he won’t be around every day.

    I did not see a host location in Houston this time, so I contacted First Baptist in Willis and they are holding a ticket for me. It is just up Highway 45 a little ways, so not too far to drive to get an encouraging word from the Lord through our Siesta Mama on Saturday morning! My daughter remarried and moved with her three children to Fort Worth (Keller) over the summer. I am adjusting to having them further than 20 minutes away for the first time….

    I was not planning to attend because we could not afford it so I wrote it off. However, I went to church this Sunday and my church that is hosting decided to offer it FREE of charge.

    That’s right FREE!! I took that as a sign from the Lord that I an supposed to be there.

    Hey Beth,I will be attending the simulcast at Flint Grove Baptist in Gastonia, NC. This is my 5th one. I also came to the LPL event in Char. NC this past July. My biggest thing right now is knowing God’s leading and not my own twisted will. My deepest desire is to serve Him and please Him by doing what He desires for me. I love what I am doing, teaching a small group at work,they are great, and I just started teaching SS at my church,they were so eager and it started off with great interest but now it seems to have faded…and I am crushed. Take care Beth.

    1) Amy

    2) Simulcast location: West County Assembly of God, St. Louis, MO

    3) Biggest Thing: Walking through divorce and all the changes that come with it. My husband of 3 years has decided to leave our marriage. Trying to see God in all of this and His plans for my life as He “recalculates” it (think GPS speak)! Jer 19:11 (my SSMT verse for Aug 1).

    I have been looking forward to the simulcast since last year’s – – and had no idea how ready I would be for a “Word from God” (given how difficult the past year has been) as I have heard from Him at every single LPM event I’ve attended!

    Thanks for all your hard work, Siesta Mama & Co.!
