September 2012 – God’s Treasures!

On Tuesday night the TBG Board of Directors met for our Third Quarterly Meeting of 2012. Sounds formal, I know. And it IS formal. And purposeful. And prayerful. And a whole lot of wonderful! I am so thankful to be serving our Lord Jesus with such a Christ-focused group of Board Members, Counselors, Speakers and Administrative Angels!

Then those who feared the LORD talked with each other, and the LORD listened and heard. A scroll of remembrance was written in his presence concerning those who feared the LORD and honored his name. ‘They will be mine,’ says the LORD Almighty,‘in the day when I make up my treasured possession.‘” – Malachi 3:16-17

How encouraging it is to know that we are God’s treasured possession! How good it is to choose, in unity, humility and passion to join together before our LORD seeking His Ways to become our ways in all we do in His Name! What a privilege to tell others of the love, salvation and transformation that is available through Jesus Christ! I pray, as did the Apostle Paul, that all of us who as Christ’s disciples – God’s treasured possession – that we…

may be encouraged in heart and united in love,
so that [we] may have the full riches of complete understanding,
in order that [we] may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” – Colossians 2:2-3.

May we as God’s treasured possessions faithfully share His treasures of wisdom and knowledge wherever, whenever and with whomever our LORD directs us!

Please join us in praying for our LORD –
– to open more and more doors for conference speaking opportunities that will challenge and encourage all who attend to allow the unfailing love of our God to rule in and through all of our hearts, minds and lives!
– for Convinced! to be used mightily in the lives of many, many people so they may know the incredible, transforming grace of our God and the power of His forgiveness!
– for our counseling ministry to passionately and wisely offer the love, hope, healing, grace and truth of our Lord Jesus Christ to all those with whom we meet!
– for God to increase the number of people who pray for us and financially support us as our Partners in Grace so that we may grow in our ability to reach more and more people with the message of Christ’s transforming grace with which God has entrusted us!

A Brief Update:
THANK YOU to ALL who prayed for the Volunteer Staff Training for Freedom House on September 8! God showed up in a beautiful, powerful and encouraging way for all of us! Clinical information regarding Protective Boundaries and Honoring Confidentiality was presented within the foundational truth that our truest freedom comes through the transformation offered by our Lord Jesus Christ! I’m so thankful for this experience and so in awe of the precious people who generously give their time, energy and effort to work with women rescued from the bondage of sex and labor trafficking!
