Ministry and Prayer Updates – July and August 2014

Dearest Partner in Grace,
Our faith in Jesus may be expressed very differently in each of our lives as we use our individual gifts, passions, pursuits and experiences in different venues, in different ways, with different people. This is how the Body of Christ works best – with each member of the Body living out its role and purpose for the good of the whole Body. Still, we are all similarly called by Jesus to:

“Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will make you fishers of men.”
Mark 1:17 

Whatever we are gifted to do as individuals, we each are called to follow Jesus and to open our lives in such a way to God’s leading that other people will be drawn in to know the love, the mercy, the hope, the peace, the joy and the eternal promises of our Lord Jesus Christ!

Follow Jesus. With all that you are. With all that you have. With all that God has given you. Follow Jesus. You will be more fully alive. More fully aware of the precious gift of life you have been given. More fully living your life passionately, purposefully and influentially for the good of all those precious ones – believers and not-yet-believers – around you. Follow Jesus. 

Our needs for your prayers and financial support continue as we follow Jesus and seek to be vessels of His love, grace and truth in many lives! Today is a very good day for you to join us as our Partner in Grace – our PinG!

Currently, as is typical in the summers, Conference Speaking engagements are a bit quieter. Please pray that God will open the doors for many new engagements to happen! Please pray and reach out to your contacts – locally, nationally and internationally – to invite Sylane Mack to come and share with them the Word of God – the message of Jesus’ love, salvation, forgiveness, healing and transformation that God has given Sylane to speak so powerfully as she follows Jesus.

Counseling and Mentoring for TBG continues! Please pray for each of us on the Counseling Staff as we counsel and mentor each precious person that God brings to us. Please pray that we will faithfully follow the full leading of Jesus – through His Word and by His Spirit – to offer His love, healing, restoration and renewal to each life! Our God is able!

Please pray for Sylane Mack as she dedicates a great portion of her summer to writing. Her largest project is to prepare “Grace Moments” (the daily devotionals she writes, and TBG sends via email) to be published in book form and made available around mid-November this year! We are so thankful for the encouraging responses to “Grace Moments” we have already received, and for the excitement expressed about “Grace Moments” coming out in book form! 

Please pray for each person to be deeply encouraged and challenged to trust and follow Jesus as they read CONVINCED! Please pray that many, many more copies will be sold and put into the hands and lives of everyone for whom God will use this powerful instrument of raw truth and amazing transformation to reveal His unfailing love, forgiveness and power! 
Please pray for each of us who serves on the Board and Staff of TBG to fully follow our Lord Jesus and to be greatly effective as Christ’s ambassadors!

Connect with Sylane via Facebook!  Like us on Facebook  AND order your copy of CONVINCED!

Remember to join us on the 10th day of each month as we passionately PRAY for God’s life-giving, life-freeing, transforming work to be done in the lives of all with whom we minister – at conferences, counseling sessions, on corners and in coffee shops!
Following Lord Jesus with you in love, action, word and prayer
– on behalf of the Board and Staff of Transformed by Grace!
Sylane Mack
