LUV Update: Removing Stones.

Dear praying friend, Thank you for praying for our recent workshops. I was so encouraged by your responses and shared them with our butterflies.  It’s a blessing to know that you join us in praying for the women who are making this commitment for three and half years, to sit at the feet of Jesus

A Place of Refuge and Renewal

Dear partner and friend,

In the many times I traveled to India, my greatest motivation was knowing that our Indian Butterfly sisters considered our workshops their time in “Butterfly Hospital“.  They were all believers, women seeking to follow Jesus intimately and to be transformed, equipped and empowered to bring His Kingdom to women in India.  But along the way, they experienced the battles and wounds that come from ministry, work and family.  They needed a safe place to heal, to be refreshed and strengthened to continue the work God had called them to do.

Thank you! Your prayers for our Workshops are being answered!

God is moving in very real and intimate ways to heal and transform women’s hearts at the deepest level.

The Transforming Power of God’s Love

Dear friend,

I am always challenged to find ways to communicate with you the incredible things that IMG_4272 (2)God does in women’s lives during our 4 day workshops.  I can only describe as miraculous what happens as women are transformed and set free to be the women God created them to be, understanding they are more than their role, they have an identity created by God, ​for a purpose.

Often women don’t know why they are coming. They come just following a prompting from the Lord, or wanting tools and materials to minister to women. As they receive healing in God’s word and experience freedom from the lies and bondage of the enemy, their past, their culture, and even religion, women are changed by God’s love for them. Empowered to fulfill their purpose they become courageous women of passion and faith who boldly become His ministers and witnesses wherever God calls them to multiply.

The Yoke Destroyed!

And the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil! Isaiah 10:27.

These words hidden in Isaiah 10 (NKJV) captured my IMG_4589heart with their power and promise of hope and freedom.  I praise God today that He has broken the yoke in my own life and in the lives of so many women under the yoke of bondage to the enemy’s lies. Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom! 2 Corinthians 3:17.

I’ve tried everything, every program, every tool, nothing works. I’m ready to try Jesus!”  This desperate young woman arrived at the door of our partner ministry, Life Works a year ago.  Ricki Lynn our Butterfly leader opened the door leading her to freedom in Jesus and discipling her for a year in God’s word through the Butterfly teaching.

Flying Free for the First Time

Dear friend,

God is doing SO much among our Butterflies world wide, it’s hard to know what to share.  But I’ll start by saying THANK YOU for praying for our Workshop last weekend!

Once again the Holy Spirit worked powerfully IMG_4177-6 (2)bringing transformation, healing and freedom in the lives of women who joined us for the first time from Lithuania and around the USA. They came to be equipped to reach other women, but found that God wanted to work in their own lives.  We experienced several unexpected interruptions, but God used all of it to bring us to a place of greater transparency and freedom.

These are some of the precious testimonies women shared: 

I haven’t felt this spiritually free in a long time.  No, I haven’t EVER been this free! Thank you, LORD! “

Freedom at Easter in a S. Florida Jail

Remember the prisoners as if chained with them… Hebrews 13:3   Dear friend, Two weeks ago I had an opportunity to visit the fourth group of women inmates Tanya is leading through our  LUV Transformation Discipleship in a S. Florida Jail.  I was anxious to meet the women and hear what God is doing in
