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.
