Thank you to all our amazing leaders! Thank you for all you do to make sure Jesus is shared in practical ways each and every day with your groups.

Linda and Jen Barrick’s interview with James Robison will be airing, Tuesday the 25th. Here is a link to the station guide, with network listings all over the country. http://lifetoday.org/life-today-tv/station-guide/
After Tuesday, you will be able to view the interview at Lifetoday.org
Feel free to pass the link along, and post to social media.
Also, James is giving away copies of Miracle for Jen Book!
Please pray for God to do exceedingly, abundantly more than all we could ask or imagine and that many lives would be transformed and new names would be written in the Lambs Book of Life!
In the middle of the interview, James asked Jen to pray over everyone who was hurting or in pain. James was very emotional as he talked about the pain of loosing his daughter to cancer. When Jen prayed, the Holy Spirit anointed her words and many people in the live audience were weeping as God was speaking healing and hope to their hearts. Everyone in the room could feel God’s presence! Afterwards, the producer told Andy that in 20 years of filming interviews, he had never felt the presence of the Spirit in such a powerful way. We are excited to see what God will do as millions will watch this TV show all over the world. We are praising God in advance for saving souls and healing the broken-hearted.
Thank you for covering us in prayer before, during, and after the interview. Nothing of eternal significance happens apart from prayer!
You are Loved!

3 Things you can do THIS Week to improve your group:
1) Pray for group members by name.
2) Begin and end your group ON TIME. Respect group members by honoring their time. This You can easily pause the evening to say, “Thanks so much for a great discussion. We are going to pause right now to wrap up our group time in prayer but those who would like are welcome to stay afterwards to continue to visit.”
3) Contact members sometime this week by phone, text, or email. The power of a hand-written note is reflected in this business article. How much more meaningful and productive would this be in a discipleship realm?
