Exciting News!

10 Mar

I am super excited to share some wonderful news with you all! The Lord provided a way for me to be able to go to Romania and minister for a week in the beginning of May! This gift from God was a great evidence of His love and care for me! For almost as long as I can remember, I have had a desire to travel around the world. Now, I’ve been given the opportunity to go and share the wonderful news of God’s saving grace, mercy, and freedom! We will be meeting with dignitaries, youth in various schools, and those in authoritative positions. I still can’t believe that I am really going! I’m so blessed – and so excited, can you tell?!  🙂

Latest Update:

Friday evening, a small group of us had the amazing opportunity to go with Mr. Gothard to the local Hobby Lobby store. We had been invited by Ceo and Founder David Green to present the message of God’s freedom and power to their staff. Each employee who attended the meeting was given the opportunity to receive one of Mr. Gothard’s latest books: How to Resolve 7 Deadly Stresses. During this meeting, three of us had the privilege to give our testimonies of how we transformed the “stresses” from our past experiences by applying the commands of Christ to our situation and life. The staff seemed intrigued seeing the renewed joy, peace, and blessing that came as a result.

Afterward, we wanted to celebrate so we headed over to Wendy’s. It was an incredible experience and the Lord was certainly in the midst, for sure! During the time that we were there, the Lord opened various doors to present to Gospel to not only the employees but the customers as well. Their hearts were open and receptive to hear the truth of the Gospel. By the time we left, about two hours later, hearts had been touched and the Lord’s truth had been proclaimed. Praise His Name!

These next few days will be very busy packing, preparing, and getting ready for the Journey this coming week. The young ladies will be arriving Saturday and we’ll be heading to the Northwoods on Monday. I’m looking forward to this time and anticipating what great things the Lord is going to do in each of our hearts. If the Lord brings us to your mind, please keep us in prayer. I desire for this to be a life-changing experience for all of us and for the Lord to be glorified through it all!

    That is really neat Sara! We have a woman and her daughter at our church that recieved Christ, because some missionares from America witnessed to them when they lived in Romania.

    Sara — it has been a while since I have stopped by. I was just catching up on all your posts and was encouraged that you are doing well and clinging tightly to Christ. Your last post was a bit of a surprise… I am lifting you up in prayer. Your complete surrender and undying love for Christ is always a blessing. Thank you for sharing!
