We kicked off a woman's Monday night Bible study at Christian Outreach Church Monday March 8, 2004, upon my return from West Palm Beach, FL. We looked at two subjects. (1) What God's Word is and (2) the benefits of knowing and speaking God's Word. We learned a lot and got to know each other as sisters in the Lord.
We will be meeting every Monday night at 7:00. If you live within driving distance we welcome you to participate. Child care is provided. I will be looking at the lives of the various women mentioned in the Bible. God had them in the Word for a reason. We will be discovering the life lessons and how they apply to our lives today. Please see the map to the church on the next page. Fill free to visit any of our Holy Spirit filled worship services.

UPDATE JANUARY, 2005
God bless all you precious daughters and sisters in the Lord who came out to study God's Word, share your faith and revel in the mighty move of God.There are seasons of life and we must each follow the Shekinah glory of God as He leads us with a cloud by day and fire by night. Life is an exciting adventure when we trust God and walk by faith and not by sight. The Word says the footsteps of the righteous are ordered of the Lord. All He askes is that we be willing and obedient. It often requires moving out of our comfort zone and things familiar, trusting Him as our all-in-all. Praise God! He never fails.
As you know, I am currently in Boca Raton, Florida. God opened place. I am renting a bedroom and bath in the home of a Messianic Jew. The first Sunday Holy Spirit led me to an incredible church, Cornerstone Christian Church. They worship God in Spirit and in Truth. I feel right at home. Pastor George Faragi is encouraging his congregation to remain DEVOTED, DEDICATED and DETERMINED to see this year (2005) as THE YEAR OF BLESSING!
I miss my family and friends very much. I need your prayers as we make final decissions concerning another possible neck and low back surgery. My life is in God's hands. I trust Him completely. Who knows but God, He may have a Boaz here who will find me faithful in the Lord's harvest fields. .Abraham had to be willing to leave everything familiar and go to a far away place to fulfill God's plan for him. God directs our steps. He closes and opens doors, while taking us through seasons of life. Abraham, after believing God for Isaac, had to become willing to sacrifice him on the alter. This distance from my children is difficult, because I believed God to restore my family when it was ripped away from me when they were teens. We became homeless and lived apart. I would never make the changes to go to Florida and be away again, but I know I have to follow the cloud by day and fire by night, trusting HIM with my children. He is a better Father than I am mother. I am experiencing divine connections with people of all cultures and walks of life daily. Please be in agreement with me that I don't fail God. We pass this way only once. Remember the slogan EACH ONE REACH ONE. I thank you so much for your prayers. I miss each of you and trust the seeds of the Word of God which have been planted will bring forth a harvest in your lives and community.
Remember the words from the song "Friends are friends forever, if the Lord's the Lord of them..." You are in my heart, although we are many miles apart (I feel a poem coming on). Ha-Ha!! I don't have the full revealation of God's future for me but the path of the righteous (through Christ Jesus' sacrifice) is ordered of the Lord. You can always reach me via email, phone or mail. Also, the ministry office and warehouse in Lenoir, North Carolina will continue to ship Bibles, reading glasses and relief supplies to third world countries by my board, with my occassional meetings. Please keep them in your prayers. God bless and use each of you as mighty WARRING WOMEN OF THE WORD!
