What a weekend! I just returned from Coleman, Michigan after doing a conference there called
"A Real Beauty Makeover".
What fun we had, and ohhhh, how God showed up! He's so good.
*
That gals at Coleman Wesleyan Church organized such a beautfiul event. Mary Geer and Natasha Allen had been planning since February and had a sold out event!
*
The highlight for me was at the very end of the show when two teens approached me and told me that had accepted Christ! One said she'd been in church all her life but just never "got it" till that day. The other was an exchange student from Germany who just arrived 2 weeks before and said she wanted to live a life for Christ! The really cool thing is the exchange student is living with the other girl's family so they can now hold each other accountable, go to youth group together and basically do life as new sisters in Christ!
*
Wow!
*
Here's what I want to say to you today.
*
Don't think you have to be in ministry like me, speaking from a stage, to affect change in someone's heart. You are doing ministry right where you are...today. What can you say or do that could make an eternal difference for someone this morning, this afternoon or tonight?
*
Not leaving your house today?
*
Who can you pray for?
*
When you get to heaven, my hope is that God will show you all the events that were affected because of your prayers...and mine.
*
If you are going out today, make sure you take a few extra minutes to look nice...you ARE representing the King, you know.
*
Praise God he is mine. Praise God he is yours.

Taking Christ wherever I go,
