Day 2: keep doing the things...
Day 183: still doing the things?
Day 365: try new things?
(Haha star wars reference.)
Just a heads up. After 3 and a half years of neglect, my poor little blog is finally getting some TLC. I'm not sure how often I will post or what I will post, but come along and join me for a blogging adventure in 2017.
Happy New Years Eve, friends. :)
I know I am very late on this today. But here goes.
I'm not going to lie to you. I'm pretty discouraged right now. It seems to be impossible to get in touch with people. I make a thousand calls, leave a thousand voice mails, and the few times that I get people on the phone they either say no or call me back at a better time. When I do call them back they don't answer that time. I know it sounds like I'm complaining and on some level I am. Just need to vent every once in awhile. Right now I am sitting down praying and searching scripture for something to help lift me up and get me through the next few calls I need to make.
The biggest obstacle right now is figuring the best time to sit down and call people. I know people are busy. I have no hard feelings about that. I'm busy with too. I blame no one but chance. Luckily for me there is no chance for me. Only Gods Providence.
But I will continue to diligently do what God has called me to do. I Will make the calls and I will do it with a right attitude. Only God can bring the partners to me, and only God can bring in the support.
As far as prayer request go, they are pretty much the same as last week. Pray that appointments will be scheduled and partnerships will be made. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.

I spend a lot of time at Starbucks these days. Sometimes in order to get work done you just need a change of scenery. But work is going well.
I have had two ministry presentations which have resulted in new partners, and I have two more scheduled so far. I also have two follow up calls within the next week and a couple pushed off in the next month s. I have a pretty good number of referrals to start with, and the list is still growing.
I finally got up with my KCt coach. That was fun. She was very encouraging.
I think the hardest thing so far is voicemails. I have left so many voicemails. It can be kind of discouraging when people don't answer the phone.
My coach says this is normal and that it will work itself out. In fact God even says it will work itself out.
Jeremiah 29:11 "for I know the plans I have for you” — ⌊this is⌋ the Lord ’s declaration — “plans for ⌊your⌋ welfare, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope."
I know that God is already preparing people who will partner with the ministry. He is already expanding the ministry in miraculous ways. He has called me, and he has equipped me.
Jeremiah goes on to say this: "You will call to Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you” — ⌊this is⌋ the Lord ’s declaration — “and I will restore your fortunes and gather you from all the nations and places where I banished you” — ⌊this is⌋ the Lord ’s declaration. “I will restore you to the place I deported you from.” (verses 12-24)
I must remember to constantly seek Him daily. I must go to him to refill me when I have poured Spirit out on others. I must not be afraid or discouraged.
PLEASE PRAY that I will not be discouraged. Pray that I will continue to be encouraged by the progress God is making.
Pray that I will be able to connect with people at the right time and in the right attitude.
Also prayerfully consider how you can also be a part of the ministry. Or if you know anyone who might be interested in part feel free to contact me.
