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.

    Kristi says:

    My name is Kristi of Abilene, Texas. I am so glad to be attending in Lubbock!!!!
    One of the biggest things in my life right now is that God is using my womb to grow a whole person! I am expecting a baby in late April/early May with almost the same duedate as a baby I lost to miscarriage four years ago. My two-year-old son is so curious about what we are talking about and keeps asking me, “Where’s the baby today?” Same place as yesterday, same place as tomorrow–in God’s hands. I trust Him so much.

Thank You Beth and Staff for your dedication to the One and Only!!!!!

    Lynn Miller says:

    Lynn. I will be live with you in Lubbock, and am absolutely giddy with excitement! My big thing right now is praying for my youngest son, who has been deeply in love with his God since he was a little bitty thing, but now, upon his recent graduation from high school, is telling us that he is doubting the existence of God, and is spending his time reading books about natural selection and aetheism.

      Kelly says:

      I, too, have a son who has done the same thing. I just hang on to the fact that God has his heart in his hands. Blessings~

      • Lynn Miller says:

        You are so right, Kelly! Your comment reminded me of the verse that says that God has the names of our sons engraved on the palm of HIS hands. Yes, HE will take care of them. Thanks for your encouraging words.

    • 916.2

      Praying that the Holy Spirit who lives inside of him, as a seal and a guarantee (Eph 1:13-14), will remind your son of all the things Jesus has said (John 14:26). And that God will draw him to repentance by revealing His ultimate, unconditional, perfect, unending, relentless love (Rom 2:4).
      HE IS ABLE!

      • Lynn Miller says:

        Wow, thanks for that reminder, Courtney, to just trust in the power and the promise of the Holy Spirit! I think I will put Eph 1:13-14 to memory..that’s a great one, and it brings me peace. Thanks for your prayer! Yes, GOD IS ABLE!!

      • tiffany says:

        Thanks for the encouragement = our son who is a believer has wandered from the Lord

      Lynn –
      My 17 year old son has done the same thing. Even though he has let go of God, I know God has not let go of him.
      Godhasn’t let go of your son either. He is faithful. Praying and believing with you that our boys will become the men that God wants them to be.

    I am attending the simulcast at The Crossing @ Birchwood in Chugiak, Alaska.

    This week has been a roller coaster. Our Pastor had a 4-wheeler accident, his daughter has kidney stones, my father-in-law had a heart attack and all my co-workers want to know what is wrong because I am so quiet this week. I am on the prayer ministry at our church and I have been praying for the simulcast all week. One thing I learned – I can’t talk and pray at the same time so I have been quiet.

    The biggest thing in my life: I am the mother of a 7 year old little boy who has an undiagnosed genetic syndrome with lots of challenges including being unable to communicate or care for himself AND a severe seizure disorder. My challenge is not knowing how to pray for my child. Should I accept him as he is and pray for strength to care for him or should I be bombarding Heaven with prayers for healing? Is my faith strong enough? What does God want from me in this situation?

    I saw you in Minneapolis this summer and have taken many of your bible studies over the last 2-3 years, which have had a profound influence on my spiritual growth and emotional healing. I’ll be watching your simulcast from Grace Church in Eden Prairie, MN.
    At your Mpls event last summer, you offered some wonderful tools I’ve used to help overcome pride and negative thinking, including ‘zero-tolerance’. It has allowed me to move on to other issues during a most challenging time in my life. Now I am working on forgiveness and submitting to my husband who has been the cause of much pain . . . because I realize this is all part of God’s great plan for me. I look forward to your guidance and encouragement as I continue my journey.

    Laura says:

    I’ve already answered my three questions, but just wanted to make a quick comment that the pre-simulcast spiritual warfare is indeed heating up. And the enemy does not fight fair.

    In addition to the many accusations the accuser seems to be hurling at every sister in Christ that I know (drudging up dirt from many years gone by), a family member (sister in-law’s brother) just committed suicide yesterday. Please pray for my sister-in-law’s family – many of them are not believers and this is a blow that has stunned them beyond words. Oh that the Lord would bring the entire family to faith in Him through this tragedy!

    Praying also for all of you Siestas who will be attending. Don’t believe the lies or the distractions or reasons why you all of a sudden shouldn’t attend – stand on Truth!

    Thank you, Mama Beth, for encouraging us that intense warfare means God has something incredible planned for us at this Simulcast. We are praying for you, too!!!

    Lord, be with Beth in a special way today and tomorrow. Increase her love for you daily, even hourly. Let Your Holy Word move her heart according to Your Spirit. Let Your Word be her food, as she prepares to serve us and our sisters in faith around the world. Help us all to focus only on You and the great plans You have for us. AMEN!
