Home Sweet Home!
Just back from the ends of the earth. Mike and I have ministered in "Jerusalem," "Judea," and now the "uttermost parts of the earth."
My sleep schedule has been upside down since returning home. Jet lag means sleep days & up nights. Hopefully strong PNG coffee, will help my body acclimate to Eastern Standard Time again.
I spent the last ten days with 100 American volunteers and missionary women serving in Papua New Guinea(PNG). What a privilege to worship, hear inspirational messages from Peg Forrest, and pray with cross cultural workers on a remote South Pacific island.
Thrive retreats are designed to bless women with God’s Word, worship, prayer, counseling and lots of fun. This retreat included all that and more!
New friendships were made, and the attendees now know that thirty volunteers back home are praying for them - as well as people like you, who supported many of us on this trip. THANK YOU!
It’s a joy to lavish God's love on Christians pouring out their lives for the Gospel. Something as simple as a new hair cut and prayer afterwards, can mean so much. God is working in these dear ladies - teaching them life lessons as they give and give. It was our privilege to give back to them in practical ways.
For fifteen years Mike and I have prayed for opportunities to bless English-speaking leaders overseas. God has taken us to four continents, so far, doing just that. We are His humble servants, only wanting to give from the well of His Spirit in our lives. What an honor to serve and share Jesus!
I loved sitting in our small group, daily praying for each one, as we listened to their joys and burdens. They deal with relational and physical issues just like you and me. They're simply our sisters in the Lord, living in a far away land. Please say a prayer for the PNG missionaries.
I had the privilege of partnering with another Thrive volunteer to write about our ministry while in Papua New Guinea. If you would like to learn more about this special retreat, read the Thrive blog here.
Upcoming events are being planned(see dates below), for which I covet your prayers. Without God's anointing, my words are lifeless. He brings life and inspiration. Aren't we blessed to know Him?!
I'm already in the Christmas spirit - and it hasn't even snowed yet! I can't help it. Looking forward to an upcoming Christmas Tea December 4th in W. Rockport, Maine. Let me know if I may serve your church or ladies group by sharing new arrangements of favorite Christmas carols. I'm full of thanksgiving for the gift of Jesus - brought to us as a little babe. Can't stop singing about Jesus, my Savior!
Praying for God to move mightily in the lives of women at two upcoming ladies retreats. Hope some of you can join me in Portland, Maine January 12-14th for a ladies retreat at Embassy Suites. Later, April 13-15th, I will lead worship and sing in N. Conway, NH at a women's retreat. Following that retreat, I lead worship at Thrive retreats in Mexico April 20-29th then in Colorado July 7-15th.

Humbly blessed by your faithful support,
PS Thrive is starting a new aftercare ministry for missionary women. I have signed up to connect in a mentoring way one-on-one, after the missionaries leave Thrive retreats. Please pray that God will use me to bless these missionaries.
