IMG_4028We are nothing without Him. We have no power without Him. Believe that! If and when you start doing it on your own, you will find out real quick, you need the power.

…and Jesus came to them and told his disciples, I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth.”

Satan is NOT in control of me. Jesus Is my Master!

Satan knows your sin, Jesus calls you by name.

Satan knows your sin, Jesus calls you by name.

Yes, he calls you by your sin and you listen to him too. We all hear him. But we need to hear God call us by our name! Satan will beat us down and Jesus will build us up. Satan is there to knock the wind out of you and Jesus is there to breath, the Ruach breath of God into you. When you become confident in Christ you won’t give Satan the time of day. When you know Christ knew you before you were formed in your mothers womb. As a matter of fact He created you! Satan has only tried to destroy you… with drugs, alcohol, the love of money…promiscuity. God has tried to deliver you from evil. And you keep going back and answering the door to the evil one. Then you sign for the package…and Jesus is yelling…NO! NO! NO! I have Life for you! Run for your life! Haven’t you already had enough of your life destroyed by the enemy? You have been delivered…for he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness Col 1:13 When you go back in, it is hard to come out again. But the Bible says that will happen. It say’s, it will come back, then it says, ‘I will return to the person I came from.’ So it returns and finds its former home empty, swept, and in order. Matt 12:44 Tell Satan! You are not in control of me! Jesus Christ is in control of me! I will follow the One who created me! I am a mighty woman (or Man) of God! He is my Savior! My way maker, my healer. He is my Master!

God is drawing them in…reaching them with His love…all in one week

Help me…Save me…

1. This story is amazing, as we were taking backpacks and gifts to the dancers in the adult night clubs, after we had an amazing outreach we were leaving this club for the second time, we brought extras at the request of the DJ for the night girls and we were heading out the door and we heard someone behind us…help me…save me…only her head and her arm reaching toward us was out the door. Our team looked at each other and hurried back inside together with the dancer. We sat on a sofa with her, we listened, i am so lost she said over and over, we prayed with her, we prayed for her and we exchange phone numbers, we are following through to see what is the next thing we can do to help her.

“I can’t do this! Can you help me?”

Story 2. I was on my way to Jail when the call came in. I had just finished working at the store all day. I had two appointments with two girls and then Jail ministry with my partner. Back to the call the woman was very shaken up. She said: “I can’t do this! Can you help me?” I wasn’t sure how urgent her situation was. I asked if she were in any danger? She said “Not at the moment but I could be.” I said “ I actually was on my way somewhere, so I will have to make other arrangements. Give me just a little bit and someone will be there. I worked things out and within the hour I picked her up and dealt with all that was at hand. She needed food so I fed her, she needed a safe place for the night and I can’t put a new woman at our house because she has to be drug tested and be clean. I got her a room at the Best Western (Because it is safe and clean) and in the morning I picked her took her to Second Chance and got her clothes, all she had were the clothes on her back. Since then we have drug tested here, helped her do a resume, partnered with probation on her plan. Housed her. Bought her some things she needed.

I need a way out!

Story 3.  Got a message from my web site: I need a way out! Met with her today… very sad sorry, mother of 8, stepmother of 4 more, addicted to heroin Lots and lots of issues… we have a call in for detox for her, we also helped with some clothes (that were stolen) Baby diapers, wipes, underwear and shoes for one of her children to start school. We have only just begun but we will be aiding her in her sobriety and one year in the One Way Out Program.

These are just the three new girls in the last week, we are also still helping 2 houses full of women and others who don’t live in our homes but are in our one year program.

Sales are down unfortunately at Second Chance…but it’s like that everywhere. We are doing our best and have cut back as much as we could. We could really use some help…

God’s arms are not too short…

I have a friend who makes fun of me because my arms are short…if i drop something she will scoop down and pick it up quickly and then smile because she knows how short my arms are. LOL! I laugh right along with her, she got me one of these little dinosaur’s with short arms and painted it purple…her and her cute self..lol…

Now on more of a serious note, God’s arms are NOT too short. (BTW, I am so glad I am not God) He can reach you right where you are! You will never, be beyond his grasp, or reach. And the word says if you need Him, cry out to him, He will answer!

Surely the arm of the LORD is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear. Isaiah 59:1 NIV

I love that!!! His arm is not to short nor His ear too dull! He can reach me, He can hear me! I am not alone. He’s got me! He’s got you!

Call on Him!

Drink and never thirst again!

Image

Today, I went to a BBQ and brought Snookums with me because it was an outdoor event. It was hot…probably 90 outside, kids were playing in a slip-n-slide so i knew there was fresh water for her to drink. She kinda put her nose in the air and walked away. Pretty soon, i saw her trying to drink one of the kids kool-aid, I said no Snookums, A minute later, I saw her by someone’s beer. A few minutes she came sniffing around my drink.
God says…come drink the water I have for you and you will never thirst again. (John 4)
Snookums is kind of like us. She tried the kool-aid, (like relationships) not good for her, then the beer…well, (like addictions) not good for her, then the other drink, (Like money) not good for her. We try to satisfy our selves with all these other things instead of the big pool of fresh water Jesus has for us. So that we will never thirst again! Drink from what he has for you and leave the rest alone, they are NOT good for you!

He provided LIVING water so that we would never thirst again. Drink UP!

The Royal Treatment is a ministry designed by God Himself, even the Logo, even the name.

First let me preface this by saying. I don’t think I am smart enough to do all that God did in the beginning of this ministry. He gave me the heart for His…the Crown was about the first Royal Treatment which would be done in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, the red light district September 2007. The crown actually represented the royalty of Europe (But also the Royalty of God. All the curly lines made it more feminine. The cross at the top is God at the Top of all we do. The purple of course represents the forgiveness that Jesus died on a cross for us for.

God put an amazing team together. The most amazing team that has ever been! (As far i can know) Image

On my goodness…I can’t tell you with words how amazing this team was. I was honored to be able to lead this team, but I knew who was leading. The team was (Bottom row R to L) Linda Dorcey, Ligia Barijas, Karen Douglas, Nancy Smith, Julie Faircloth, Gay McDonald, Michelle Meiser, Me, Katy Sheffer-Vicara now Weitzel, Robbie Saffell and last but not least Annette Scheel. This was the LOVE team.

Our Mission was to go to the Amsterdam Red light district and do The Royal Treatment Spa for women in sex industry there. Our Mission statement was to be a bridge of love between the girl and the missionary. We wanted to help build relationships for them. We knew we would be leaving. We took gifts, bought roses, chocolates, spa supplies, decorations, and we brought a plane full of Love.

Image

Every one of those tea cups came from a personal collection from a woman in the United States with a note of love to a woman working in the sex industry in Amsterdam. That was amazing!

Image

As we welcomed the women, things started to roll…tea and chocolate pastries not to mention served with the most gracious of smiles. We had with us many licensed cosmetologists. We did hair, manicures, pedicures, facials and massages. While we were giving their treatments the missionaries were spending time with them too.

The ministry we partnered with for the outreach was with the Cleft a YWAM organization and the missionary pictured below is my friend Edna Vallenilla. We loved partnering with Edna and also YWAM. Our ministry connection was Robby Bradford and Eva Van Wessem and her husband Sebastiaan for doing so much hard work for us ahead of time from Thousand Hills Church in Hilversum. (Fabulous Church by the way.)

Image  Image

Some of the women from the Thousand Hills Church we were blessed to get to know.  It was an amazing time.

One of the things we did not do was preach or talk about Jesus. We we prayed up and asked God to use us as instruments of love.

One of the women was getting her hair washed and she got up an ran out of the room and down the hall. Edna ran to see if she was ok.. she said she had never experienced that before and she asked experienced what? The woman answered …Love. The woman stayed the rest of the day, she received every treatment.

I know for myself, the thing that this trip helped me personally experienced was an amazing new dimension of love.

We have had other Royal Treatment Spa’s, one was even for 12 rescued human trafficked survivors. You might ask, why am I blogging about this today. Because yesterday was September 21 and on September 21 the day we were leaving Amsterdam there was a headline on the News Press there that said, The Mayor was closing 1/3 of the Red Light District it was being shut down. My heart jumped for joy. Progress in the oldest profession in the world that has changed its face.

Article below: http://www.nysun.com/foreign/amsterdam-deal-may-lead-to-fewer-sex-windows/63177/

The Cleft YWAM is now The Lighthouse YWAM Amsterdam and they have changed their vision to help strictly women out of the sex industry, when they used to help more than just that specific targeted group.

Our ministry continues to help women out of the sex industry, including sex trafficking.

Have a nice day!

20130909-153635.jpgThe story goes…Two friends catch a cab together. As they enter the cab, the grumpy driver say’s where to? The address was given and he sped away. He was the worst cab driver possible. Even so the one passenger was very nice to him. The other one was kind of surprised that his friend would be so nice.

When the cab driver slammed on the breaks at the address the two men jumped out and the one man paid and gave him a nice tip…and said you gave a great rideto the man have a great day! His friend looked at him and said… man are you crazy? That was the worst ride ever! Why would you tip and compliment that crazy driver too? The friend said. Obviously he has had a bad day. I didn’t want to add to his bad day. I tipped and complimented him in hope’s of improving his day. I was hoping if I helped improve his day, he would be nicer to the next rider. Possibly he will go home and not take it out on his wife and kids. I feel as if all of us could be a little nicer, especially when others are having a horrible day, that we could all help the world to be a better place.

What do you think?

What does the bible say?                                                                                                              Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. Eph 4:31-32

One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want. Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered.  Prov 11:24-25

And he answered, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.” Luke 10:27
