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.

    The biggest thing in my life is learning to live content and joyful regardless of what the circumstances of life are – or rather in spite of them! God has a plan, even tho it doesn’t seem to match what I think is best – I need to hang on and trust through the trip!!

    The biggest thing in my life right now is waiting on God to show us the direction for our life. My husband and I have been praying for direction for 3 years. We have 3 small children and his job takes him away from our family sometimes 5 days out of the week. We are asking God to provide a way for us to be together more!

    April Nicole, 30, Alaska

    The biggest thing in my life: Pursuing a sold-out heart. My plea to God right now is that He will claim every part of me so that I can become divinely driven and completely focused on the call He has placed on my life. The challenge? The enemy is completely against this and the spiritual battles are so intense some days – but I trust and believe in God to remain close and steadfast in my daily pursuit. I pray for wisdom and discernment as I seek His will for my life.

    I hope to attend the Bridgeport, WV simulcast if the situation I am dealing with right now doesn’t keep me from it. I live in WV and my mother lives out west. She recently started showing signs of dementia and has just this week gotten much worse. We will be making decisions on her long term care (my father died just last year) and need guidance and direction from God. Also, I need help from God to overcome strongholds from my past to be able to go out there and love my mother.

    Heather says:

    Attending live in Lubbock, TX . . .

    Biggest thing:
    Lubbock has experienced 3 deep losses these past couple of months . . . miracles we prayed for were all answered with being delivered “by” the fire into the Lord’s hands . . .
    – one young mother in our Bible study lost her life in a tragic car wreck; she is survived by her 9mo daughter who has no way of understanding where her mommy has gone
    – another young mother of two little ones lost a second battle round with breast cancer
    – the 5mo nephew of a friend was found blue in his crib; he revived for a time, and then they had to let him go 🙁
    We know God is still good, is still on His throne, but our hearts are crushed for these families nevertheless.
