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.

    My sisters husband (they have been married 21 years) told my family he never wants to see us again (a long story) but trying to love in spite of the massive hurt and she is not standing up for us. Truth in love keeps coming to my mind – Praise God she and my mom are going to be with me this weekend! Hoping for healing…

    “Big Thing”: A call to unceasing prayer and worship–a community of us feel called to step out into the world with deep prayer and worship–in a less than traditional way. Have been in touch with people internationally who are feeling the same call. Waiting and watching to see what God will do!

    My biggest struggle right now is remembering that Christ defines my worth- not the world or anyone in the world. Trying to let the love of Christ seep into every part of me. He is sufficient. He sustains. Why look anywhere else?

    Can’t wait to hear from you, Beth! 🙂

    Honestly the biggest thing in my life as of right now is dealing with people too caught up in “their religion” be “the right” religion to be. Did that just make sense? Why can’t we all just be who we are which would be children of God? I personally LOVE people, and love fellowshipping, and worshipping with anybody and everybody whose as in love with our Father as I am!! Wheww I feel better thanks!!

    Love you Siesta Mama, CANNOT wait til Saturday!! eeeeeeee:-)

    ONE of the biggest things in my life right now – I have recently become painfully embarrassed to speak up in business & church meetings for no explainable reason. My face flushes & I sometimes become tongue tied. What is God bringing about through this phenomenon which never used to happen to me?

    One of the biggest things in my life at this moment is trying to help a loved one with a huge problem. I have so many different feelings right now, loving them, being angry at them for getting themself into this mess, and frustration over the whole issue. Life is not always good, but my God is.

    My name is Ann. I’ll be attending at the Lubbock site! (Yea!)
    The biggest thing I’m dealing with right now is the upcoming retirement of my husband & I from 40 years of local church ministry. More especially, for the last 18 years of our ministry, my husband has been the senior pastor of a church we planted and love. We feel God is leading us to sell our home, and live full time in a 5th Wheel, and do “mobile ministry.” We’re not exactly sure what that will look like but know God will show us.

    My 63 year old mother unexpectedly left us for Heaven on August 27th (a week and a half ago). She had been living in an in-law apartment in our home for the past three years, and I am the one who found her body. ALL the other “big” things (including pursuit of a domestic adoption and trying to sell our house in order to be closer to our jobs and our church) are on the back burner as our family tries to navigate through the grief and shock….

    My sister and I are traveling 10 hours to Lubbock to be in the live audience. Birthday present to me from my sweet sister and I am “happier than a bird with a french fry.”

    I was thinking this morning I wanted to send a message to Beth about this Saturday. She may never see it but on the chance she would I was going to comment somewhere. And what do you know-the Lord provides.

    So, on to the message: Bring it. Break me. I want to walk in the knowledge that I am in God’s will. I want to be filled with such passion and desire for Him. I want to live a life worth being followed.
