God is at work in Harrisburg. God is at work in Hershey. God is at work in Mechanicsburg. And God is on the move!

Beth Moore is coming to
Hershey PA this spring, Fri-Sat May 2-3.

Who wants to go with me? I even have an extended-early-bird discount code good for $10 off, bringing tickets to $59. I will be placing my final order on that discount code this Thurs, Jan 30. Please contact me ASAP if you want in on that order!

This is Beth's one event on the entire East Coast this year.

I have gone through three of her video series: Esther, Daniel, and Deuteronomy. Each has hit me exactly where God's Spirit has needed me to grow and go, which needless to say is not Beth's doing but God's. Fortunately, God has seen fit to honor her thorough study, powerful preaching, and intimate style. She is the only person I know who can take an auditorium of thousands viewing live, broadcast through a video series into classrooms and small groups across the nation, and still make it feel as though she invited you to sit down in her kitchen for cup of tea. That happens only through prayer for the preaching and teaching and prayer for the hearts to receive.

To that end, CLA hosted a dessert rally on a cold (but thankfully not snowy) January evening to call together the prayer warriors to pray for God to impact our community through us. Nearly 200 ladies gathered to join in the vision to pray, prepare, and invite.

The city coordinator, Wendy Walters, passed along to us a scripture from Beth to pray over Living Proof Live: Hershey.

Psalm 20

May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble!
May the name of the God of Jacob protect you!
May he send you help from the sanctuary
and give you support from Zion!
May he remember all your offerings
and regard with favor your burnt sacrifices! Selah

May he grant you your heart’s desire
and fulfill all your plans!
May we shout for joy over your salvation,
and in the name of our God set up our banners!
May the Lord fulfill all your petitions!

Now I know that the Lord saves his anointed;
he will answer him from his holy heaven
with the saving might of his right hand.
Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.
They collapse and fall, but we rise and stand upright.
O Lord , save the king!
May he answer us when we call.

We also got to hear from Beth via video. She recognized that many of us have done her studies before, some many studies. Her encouragement to us was that Bible study reunion nice but what about those who have not yet come? and urged us to focus on outreach. God provided new manna, "fresh baked bread" as Beth put it, not only in the past in the wilderness, but here and now as well.

That being said, Beth is only here for a weekend. The event is good but after the event what have we built? Please pray for the churches in the community and all up and down the coast to be able to minister effectively to meet the ever-increasing need.
There also were rally awards:
Farthest was the trio of ladies who drove in from Medford NJ.
Biggest group - two groups tied for 6, including US! Each of us received a two-disc set-your-head of Beth Moore 10min devotionals, perfect for Automobile University. Plus, our fearless leader received The Resolution for Women, the companion book to the movie Courageous AND an event ticket to be able to bless someone!!

The Giant Center has 7,000 seats on the floor and first level.
But in a prayer walk thru the building, there was such need perceived in the upper section. 2,000 women far from the LORD.
So the goal is to fill Giant Center to the rafters - 9,000 seats! That's 4500 women of God each bringing a friend along. Who can you invite?

103 days to the event. 6300 seats are open. Pray for those filling each and every seat.

UPDATE: as of the 1/24 LPLHershey newsletter, 3052 seats have been sold!
