Hey, sweet friends!! I hope your summer is off to a great start. I have been traveling quite a bit and just now getting back on Central Standard Time. I love that ministry takes me all over the world and provides opportunities to invest in the lives of women with the gospel of Jesus Christ!
I am always amazed by the fact that people from unique cultures are really more alike than different!
We all need to be loved and valued.
We all need to be seen and known.
We all need to be part of something bigger than ourselves.
We all need a Savior.
These truths serve as an equalizer in our lives and place us in a position to know God and be known by Him!
If you follow the radio portion of True Vine Ministry called Truth on the Go, you know we regularly feature powerful stories of transformation. Over the last few weeks, we have heard some incredible stories. I strongly urge you to listen to these stories and share them with others.
I can't stress enough the power of our stories. It's in the context of our stories that we are real, vulnerable, and see the tangible outcomes of transformation in the midst of our challenging circumstances. We always need to remember that we serve the God of hope!
Below you will find a quick link to the stories we shared over the last few weeks. Please visit Soundcloud and subscribe, rate, like, and share Truth On The Go Podcast. This small action will only take a minute, and will help us reach more people with the life-changing message of Jesus! I love you so and I am praying for you today!!
