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.

    Father in hospice, Grandfather in hospice and grandmother (his wife) in nursing home (respite care) with mental instability compounding the grief of her husband dying of bile duct cancer. All of this with a husband with a new job (and the pressure that goes with it) and caring for our three children is a lot to handle right now. (Just holding on until this simulcast for a boost to carry me through the next weeks/months)

    I will be attending at Park Hill Baptist Church in North Little Rock, Arkansas. Can’t think of the biggest thing in my life right now.
    However, it is a big thing that I will be attending with my very special Sister who has held our family togehter throughout the years. Our family histories (10 of us)has taken several different paths but SHE has been our rock. She raised our siblings, then her two children, and next her grandchildren, and now her great grandchildren. You see she is special! Praise God for her.

    as a hard of hearing individual who has excellent
    speech but finds it hard to be part of something
    when I can’t hear. Sometimes I feel like I don’t belong
    anywhere and all alone. I just want to find the me God
    created me to be.

    I’m Sandy from Amarillo and I will be with you LIVE in Lubbock along with 2 bus loads of women from our church (Hillside Christian) want to be front and center so I can look you in the eye and mouth “Your hair looks really good today” (I love me some BIG Texas hair, have some Big red hair myself)

    My big concern right now is suspicion. To God’s glory my husband and I worked through infidelity 6 years ago. We had great professional Godly council and lots of support, my husband is a changed man and his fruit shows it, but even after all this time, I’m still suspicious and untrusting.
    The Enemy knows it and traps me often!

    Can’t wait to see Travis Cottrell too, all of us praising Jesus together, I have goose bumps already!

    Today is the first time I’ve read your blog!!! I heard about it from my bible study leader who will be leading the David bible study. I am so excited for your simulcast on Saturday as I’ve had the postcard on my fridge for the past 5 months. I’ve wished you Good Morning every day, have you heard me? 🙂 We’ll be watching from North Metro Church in Kennesaw, Georgia. The biggest thing in my life right now is my children. My youngest son (Matthew who is 3) just accepted Jesus in his heart. After we prayed together I told him the Angels in Heaven were celebrating his salvation. He peeked over his blanket and asked if they were in his room too 🙂 Love him!!! Love you too and can’t wait for Saturday. Thanks for ALL you do to make much of God!!!

    My heart goes out to young singles and families who are struggling with job loss or underemployment and the attendant dashed dreams of career and financial success. I pray they will not lose faith in Jesus. And, I pray they will not give up on their future or despair

    2. Will try to get to the one in Dubai (what time??). Is it too late to simulcast in Abu Dhabi, UAE?

    3. My company said they might want to move me to Qatar, now that we have finally settled in Abu Dhabi. Our chaplain (St. Andrew’s Anglican) already announced that my husband and I will start a Bible study soon and my husband is the volunteer on-site project manager for their church renovation and building projects, which affects about 30 or so churches that use/will use the compound(s). What is the step of faith God wants us to take — move to Qatar or find a way to stay in Abu Dhabi? I never forget, Beth, that you prayed on the blog, sending us out here to serve the Lord!

    Walking through the through faith. My husband has not had
    a lot of work over the year. I’ve been seeking God knowing
    He is all we need. We’ve been learning to walk by faith and

    Our finances are so uncertain, but I know God is
    faithful and this is something we must go through.

    The issue I’m dealing with right now is that I have been under spiritual attack for awhile now and need to keep standing firm in His mighty power. He has spoken to my heart and told me that it’s meant for “preparation” so I just need keep claiming his promises.
