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.

    3. Balance – between all my “mom-ing” responsibilities (which I do dearly LOVE) and being able to devote time to other things the Lord has put on my heart. So, balance – with the right attitude, not angst or frustration.

    (P.S. I’m praying Song of Songs 8:5 for you…that you have a “leaning on her Lover” week).

    Will be in Lubbock with you in Spirit and physical presence too! Just received a hurtful email from my daughter’s, in laws. Went and sat in Abba Daddy’s lap and asked if any of this was true? He said, Hurting people hurt people. The enemy will not steal our joy. He is a redeeming God full of love and grace! Our fight is not against flesh and blood, but the enemy. Thank you, Lord! You, Jesus, my love story….one to behold and continue to write out on my family’s behalf.

    YES, I am going to the simulcast!!! Love it more every time. =) My name is Allison, I will be attending at FBC, McComb, MS, and my biggest thing is learning to be COMPLETELY in love with Jesus and content in Him as a single in my late twenties without demanding that He give me a husband. He is AMAZING, but letting go of that desire is HARD.

    I would definitely be attending the Simulcast at New Life Christian Center in Turlock, CA this Saturday- but I am due to give birth to our first child (a baby boy) any day now and I’ve been trying to stick close to home. I would so appreciate any prayers for a calm and safe delivery, the Lord knows of some of the issues lately that have caused me some anxiety. Thank you SO much Beth- I’d be there if I could.

      Dear Jen:
      “a bruised reed he will not break,
      and a dimly burning wick he will
      not quench;
      he will faithfully bring forth
      justice.” The Holy Bible.RSV.1953.

      I remember laying in the floor praying this memory verse in january for my niece and her baby boy being born and just believing jesus to hear my prayer and love her and baby with it, and when i read your post today, i thought of this and to share this with you and whatever fears you may have now.

      • Jen says:

        Thank you so much Pat, that’s a great comfort to me right now. 🙂

        • Pat W says:

          there’s really something here, in this place beth calls Siestaville, i guess, cause here I am on the other side of the u.s. from you, and got my place to stay night before simulcast and it on here that I come to, to see what happening in other’s evenings, and wondering How you to be this evening,… I remember the last simulcast I was at 1year5months ago, and one of the two women with me has passed on now, and I went to a LPLive a year ago, and along the way the women I with stopped to support one whose father had passed on, she was due to go with us, but with the funeral, we just went to her, and I felt that, that was a blessing to me just about as much as beth’s message, so… I guess I’m saying, you hang in there, Jen, you got a little one on board looking to mommy to put him first this go round… you hang there, and you’re gonna have to let us know on here when the little guy gets here, ok?
