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.ย  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.

Now, here’s that link in case you want to check on the nearest host site. Click Here: Simulcast Host Locations

 

P.P.S.ย  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.ย  Call and ask for Kimberly or Susan at 1-888-700-1999.

    My name is Sarah, and I am attending the live site in Lubbock! ONE of things on my plate is being a mom to a 3 year old and 6 month old…learning to parent with patience and grace and asking Jesus to pour out His love for my kids through me. It’s tough at times, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world!

    My name is Dawn and I will be attending the Hermitage, Missouri host site for the simulcast. My biggest thing right now is I have a 53 year old husband and he was in perfect health until last Tues. He now has been diagnosed with a condition that could result in sudden cardiac death. Last Friday he had a pacemaker/defibulator implanted in his chest and he is now home. We have 3 school age children. The whole family knows God is in control and we are praising Him that He has allowed our husband/father to continue to serve Him here on this earth.

    Thank you for all you do. You lift my spirits everyday. God bless to you and yours.

      Jo Ann says:

      Hang in, for sure! I beleived the Lord led me to TX from PA in 2007 and I went, with just what fit in my car! No questions. I was joyful. But after a while, I started complaining, thinking what this was for? this isn’t a ministry, it’s just a job, maybe I was wrong…and complained I didn’t like College Station and I was really homesick for Philadelphia, even for my old church. After almost two years I was praying to go home with beggings, tears, and foot-stompings. I wanted what I left. I had something in my mind of what I wanted to go back to. I did go home and nothing I wanted or expected was there anymore and I have a sad sense of failure. I am working through it now but one of the hardest things is trying to hold firm to trusting God now when I feel I left the good way He was giving me. How can you pray for that when you think you were given it and left it? But I don’t really know if just what happened was supposed to, or if I left where God was leading me for my good. I am not sure about this. But I want to encourage you to hang on and don’t let homesickness or memories get to you. Every morning, just ask, “what do You have for me? Why am I here?” I wish I had done that.

    I will try to make it to Bakersfield, CA but just learned about this right now. Some friends and I went to see you in Fresno several months ago and it was amazing! Thank you so much Beth!! The BIGGEST thing that I’m going through right now, actually that I just went through and am at the tail end of is leaving my church family of 12 years. God has called us to transfer to a church not even 5 miles away to assist and help it grow. It has been a very emotional summer for me. Your message in Fresno was about the “rain” and boy did it hit home. God has taught me so many things through this transition, I am finally over the “grieving” period and am excited to see what God has in store for our new church family.

    Believe it or not, the biggest thing in my life right now is my new puppy. (have had her 2 months; she is 5 months old) She has changed my whole life (I’ve never had a dog before). I’m single; 57 years old. But she does not do well being left alone (Maltese/Bichon breed), so I haven’t been able to get to church not once since I got her. A very kind friend is watching her Saturday so I can get to your simulcast in Merlin, Oregon. I need this more than you know!!! God Bless you Beth.

    I’m going to really try and be at Crossroads in Arvada, CO, for the simulcast.

      Karla I have been here. My mom went through 3 surgeries in a 6 month period last year (June through December). I live 1 hour away from her and have experienced much exhaustion, stress and anxiety over the situation. Remember Psalm 91:1-2, it is what Kept me going. “(S)He who dwells in the shelter of the most high will rest in the shadow of the almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress my God in whom I trust.”

    Going to the Longview, Texas site at Spring Hill Baptist church. I wasn’t aware of it til you mentioned it today.
    Biggest thing… after being settled in one place, building our “last” home, growing in God, roots going deep with church family (teaching the 5th graders for 20 years) Moms In Touch prayer groups (two groups of faithful praying moms for 15 years), leading the children in BSF for 20 years, and teaching swimming for that long, too…we are up against circumstances that may pull the rug right out from under us. Trusting God, holding onto him for dear life as we hold our breath and walk this path of the unknown. Wish I was in Lubbock!! We are Red Raiders!!

What a surprise, was not planning on that, but ohhh how God has been faithful to provide! He laid out everything so that all I seemed to have to do is ask and the provision just pours out!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ He is such a good God and oh how He loves us!!! Personally, the biggest thing right now is waiting for another child. My husband and I have one child through IVF and desire to have another. God has repeatedly told us to wait for the past three years, so we wait.

    Without making this too long for you to read, like the song says “my name…brings honor to the LAMB”! We take our names for granted really, given us at birth by parents who probably lamented on the choices. Starting in 2008, my name was in the news as I was accused, arrested and put on trial! But I was cleared at the trial in 2011. Though my faith and relationship in my GODS ability to save is ‘off the charts’ now, I find myself afraid to speak my own name: “Thanks for shopping, with us today Mrs._____; Hi, my name is Beth Moore, and your name is? ______; Your daughter had a great day at school, Mrs.______ etc. all day long I can’t get away from my name.
