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 husband and I have been trusting God through the journey of infertility for almost 3 years. I want so badly to completely let go, but I still struggle with heartbreak, worry, and anxiety every month. How do I know what God’s plan is for us?

    Name: Jacquelyn

    Location: Paducah, KY

    Biggest thing: Knowing I found the one God has given me to marry, but, gahhhh, I struggle with being patient (and constantly wishing he was at the spiritual point I (think I) need him to be at already). :/ I wanna be like, “listen here baby, ima do my thang with our Lord, you do yours, and when we are both where we need to be spiritually, then we can talk about marriage.” hah, but seriously, marriage is beautiful, and special, and I want it to be completely God-planned, God-breathed, and God-timed. 🙂

    Wytheville Baptist Church, Virginia.
    fear of what around the next turn in the road even as I desire to drive the backroads in woods I do not know, still I have a fear rooted from backroads in woods I do know, but want to drive new backroads, and desire this very much to be something good in new woods, desiring new adventures yet afraid of what past pain tells me is waiting for me, and yet still need so much to just venture forth out of the prison of my own fears and the limitations those fears isolate and keep me from living in new places with new opportunities for fellowship and friendship, which is not found when hidden in fear where no light gets to shine… and I really need god to reveal to me this place in which I am to find a space within which I trust enough to open myself to shining brightly like a raindrop in the sunlight, and not just be dim like a cobweb in the shadow.

    How to raise a teenage boy.

    Please remind me that He knows all of the worries on my heart mostly how I feel so NOT qualified to do this Mom gig most days. Potty training is so hard. It is. But the teenage stuff has me down right on the floor in tears way too often. There is not enough out there for moms of teens.

      Laurie in Kingston On says:

      Jen P. I hear you. I have 2 teenage sons and am doing the single mom thing. I love them so much, but I so often don’t know what is right. Perhaps we need to create a prayer group of those of us in this time of our lives!I will be praying for you and your son tonight. Remember God loves him even more than you do, and He does know the right way for your son. Sometimes I think us moms need to step back and not get in the way of God dealing as need be with our boys.
