Europe Workshop Dec 2021 – Joining hands in-person and through Zoom to pray for God’s power in 2022“Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.” 2 Corinthians 2:14
|At the end of another year, we are grateful and thankful for your partnership in Jesus’ commission to make disciples. Although Covid-19 continues to impact our ministry globally, we are amazed and give God glory for the continuing work and wonderful mission of Jesus, to unveil His love bringing good news to the poor, healing the broken hearted and setting captives free!
Crossing barriers of Covid-19, culture, language, socio economics, politics, churched and unchurched, believers and non-believers, the word of God and the power of the Holy spirit continue transforming women’s lives across the globe. The Butterfly Effect is multiplying through third and fourth generation disciples as women spread their wings to bring the fragrance of Jesus to the abused, the homeless, those in jail, those who are broken hearted and to those held captive by the lies and bondage of the enemy.
One of the great joys in our ministry, is to equip and empower women to reach women in their own countries! 2021 was an answer to 8 years of prayer for Japan as two Japanese butterfly disciples in Orlando and three butterflies in Japan began the difficult process of translating LUV materials into Japanese.
|FRANCE – Transformation happens when our strongholds fall and when we let the truth and the light fill us and guide us. I can tell you because I have been experiencing it! The monarch is a butterfly that flies thousands of kilometers to reproduce and spread the fragrance of life. I want to keep on flying, I want to see butterflies all over Europe because I have been set free and I want to see many women living in freedom. That is why Jesus gave His life! A French butterfly gave me a butterfly world map puzzle. While doing the puzzle, prayed to see the whole world covered by butterflies. It is a powerful picture of what the Holy Spirit can do, reaching the world by reaching women! Marie Carmen, Butterfly Leader.
INDIA – Praise the Lord, for we have victoriously come to end of 2021! We have continued online ministry in lockdown. Though we have seen much brokenness, loss, pain and challenges this year, we have also seen amazing healing, provision, and comfort of our heavenly Father by the word of God and power of Holy Spirit. Martha, Butterfly Leader.
BRAZIL – “I started a new group of 12 women. It was beautiful, with women from many states in Brazil and one Brazilian serving in Lebanon. They are all leaders in their churches. I felt God leading me in my weakness and I left very encouraged. Praise the Lord for LUV and the impact the ministry has in thousands of women. Soon there will be millions!” Marli, Butterfly Leader.
|USA, Butterflies Orlando Workshop – What a mighty moving of the Holy Spirit within each of us individually, but also among us as a group. I am so thankful for the balance of teaching on Spirit and truth. The Spirit was shaking those walls and our hearts, as we dug into truth and let the Word and the Spirit do the work in us. Let us let the Spirit and Truth transform us daily more and more into His image!
My heart is so full of joy, I’m so grateful and humbled. I’ve learned so much. Our teachers did such a great job leading us on our journey to being the beautiful butterflies God has called us to be.
MALTA – this journey has shown me how much I need God in my life. When I joined LUV, God was preparing me for a difficult time. As we studied John 8:31-32, “I realized my husband and I were watering down the word in order to not scare people. But we agreed this is needed to change people. This helped us decide to speak Jesus and the word clearly because this is the truth that changes people. It meant we had to make changes in our ministry, and it brought many attacks. But our butterfly family has made a difference and prayed for me through all the Covid trials and attacks in ministry.
GREECE – God has done many things to change me on this journey. I learned that many women need freedom and God wants to use us, so I joined this group to learn how to help them. I learned to find my identity in Christ first. This year was painful for me, but I am learning to listen to His voice. John 15 tells me we will bear much fruit when we learn to “abide” in Him.
PORTUGAL – When I started LUV 3 years ago, I was so busy. I am learning I don’t have to be so busy. Now I ask, “What kind of fragrance am I?” I learned to work less for God and more with God. Now I start each day with this phrase and make sure I have more time with Jesus.
LITHUANIA – The women are opening like flowers. One woman was so closed and dark but now as she blossoms, God is using her across the whole of Lithuania. I experience joy seeing God working like this in other women. It is clear God is working and it’s not me. I am weak, but this is another experience, it is God’s power bringing the women.
|Equipping women in PARTNER MINISTRIES – Mending the Scarred (Domestic Abuse victims), Beautiful Feet Int (Pregnancy Crisis), Beauty for Ashes (Homeless and Trauma Crisis), Life Works NC (Restoration and Addict recovery), CRU, Agape Europe, Global Church Movement, Local Churches – is a key component of our multiplication.
|“STAND” – LUV Let’s Get Real Event , November 2021 – In a powerful finale, women joined and raised hands around Avalon Church, Orlando to sing “I stand with hands high and hearts abandoned in awe of the ONE who gave it all.”
