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 biggest thing is my husband’s need for a job and our friends who lost their home and everything else in the Bastrop,TX fire. We are all on a new faith journey and need to focus on God and to experience His very real presence and strength right now!

    I am so excited to be going to the Simulcast! My sweet MIL got me a ticket. 🙂

    Sarah, watching from Copper Point Church in Albuquerque, NM. Right now I am just trying to get through the days as the mother of an almost-two-year-old. I know there is work to be done out there for God’s kingdom but I feel I live in a Christian bubble and it’s hard to reach those who have real genuine need. I am just waiting on Him to show me the way, the deeds of service, and the works He’s laid out for me to walk in… But I can’t help thinking I’m missing them somewhere.

    Trying to really and truly believe that God is who He says He is and will do what He says He will do. I’m trying to trust that He is NOT man. He is NOT evil, does not trick or deceive or lie.
    Can’t wait to hear a word from God through you Mrs. Beth. Love you.

    Last December I posted that I thought my marriage was close to over, my husband asked me to go to counseling one more time. We got started and a month later he was deployed. In 24 days he will be returning. This is my biggest thing. I want a real change to occur in both of us. I feel lime God has begun working on me, but I am nervous and tentative about him coming home.

    My name is Michelle and I’ll be attending the Simulcast from Lake Avenue Church in Pasadena, CA.

    I’m also a facilitator of your bible studies at Lake Avenue Church. We are currently doing the new “David” study (74 women registered!)

    My big thing in my life right now is self-sufficiency — relying upon myself instead of Jesus. I’m sure this results from growing up with an alcoholic parent and a sick parent who died of cancer when I was 13. I’m so tired of trying to think and prepare for EVERYTHING, but it’s hard to turn off the switch, you know?

    Thanks so much Beth for your ministry. I found your bible studies after being delivered out of a pit in 2005, and your ministry helped me more than I can say. (HUGS)

    My name is Tammy and I will be viewing the simulcast from Grayson, GA. The one big thing in my life right now is the need to feel God’s love in a real and tangible way. I have been forsaken by so many that I need know God won’t one day decide to throw in the towel and walk away from me, too.

    I love you Beth. You ministry has changed my life.

      God says, “I will never leave you, nor forsake you.” Walk daily in faith, after suiting up with His armor, The Word. Satan, will throw those fiery darts at you, but you will be armed with the protection of God’s word and the peace of knowing it is TRUE!!!
      Please know I will be praying for you to feel God’s loving and precious arms around you! I pray today you will receive rich blessings from God’s word and how He speaks through Beth!

    Elizabeth says:

    I will be attending the simulcast in Iowa and am extremely excited. My biggest issue right now is listening well enough to God to know what direction he is asking me to go. This, in particular, deals with the man I’m seeing. He has changed drmatically since the beginning of our relationship in a way that is not healthy. I prayed for weeks before meeting this man, and then after our first date prayed nonstop. I felt this overwhelming peace and that God was telling me to pursue the relationship. Looking at the way things have changed and this man’s pull from Christ, I am unsure of what direction God wants me to take.

    Well, I have 3 daughters ages 24,20 & 13. I see such a difference from when my oldest was 13 & my 13 year old now. I don’t feel our parenting rules or ways have changed but the world sure has. I see satan pulling so hard at this age group. Technology is good & bad. I want so much for my 13 year olds memories to be how much I loved her and wanted Jesus to be most important in her life and not how much I fussed at her. Trying to live as the example I should be & staying on my knees!!

    One of the biggest things in my life right now that I am dealing with is trying to gain a better understanding of God’s Word. I am excited to be taking a Bible class through our church that teaches how to dig deeper into the Bible and to really study it, and my hope is that God will use it to grow me and maybe use it to teach others the Truths from His Word.
    Love to Beth, the Team, and all the Siestas : )
