Acts 20:24 24 But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God.
At the moment of salvation
we become Ambassadors of Christ, endowed with the incalculable, priceless 'Message of Reconciliation' ~ to share what has
been shared with us to a lost and hurting world!
SERVING ON OUR e3 ORAL STRATEGY TEAM - Telling God's Story to change Their Story!Sharing TRUTH the way Jesus did - through stories!
Jesus met people where they were and related to them through stories: the woman at the well, the possessed man living in a graveyard cutting himself; the bleeding woman, Nicodemus, the crippled man carried by his friends, the adulterous woman and so many others. Jesus shared TRUTH touching hearts and changing lives through stories.
I have the incredible privilege of serving as hands and feet for Jesus on our Orality Team. Through our e3 Oral Strategy we take the TRUTH of Jesus to the nations, including ours, through story-telling the Bible; and we train our national partners and ministry leaders across the world and our nation to do the same, to accurately story the Bible in their language for their people group.
Orality reaches unreached people groups, and the oral-based cultures that prefer 'stories' such as the Middle East,
Jewish and American cultures. Yes - America is definitely a story-based culture. We prefer stories as showcased by our ever
expanding movie and media industry; and in God's power our I am Second 'story-based' Ministry has expanded to a movement of its own with its own branding.
2015 e3 Orality Initiatives include USA projects to train church and ministry leaders in orality methods to accurately story the Bible, and serving in defined initiatives across the world training our national leaders and partners in oral strategies and helping them develop Bible Story Sets for their culture and language to share stories from God's Word – and modeling it to lost souls - telling God's Story to change their story!
MY STORY - Seeking a difference, finding a Savior!In November 2005 I walked into church for the first time in 39 years. Desperate for impact, depressed from shattered dreams, and empty with life, I hoped there was more to life than this! In that visit I heard about a Medical Mission Trip leaving in April 2006 to the Amazon and I signed to go!
You are never too old, too dirty, or too damaged for Jesus Christ! Come as you are - cry out where you are - to Jesus! Ask Him to be your Lord and Savior! He will answer you - and your life will never be the same!
I was determined to make a difference if it killed me ..... and it did!
That began the 'death of my old life to self;' ... and the 'rebirth of my new life in Christ' to make a difference for others.
Before knowing Jesus I sought fulfillment through Stuff, Others and Self! It was a true 'SOS' life that left me feeling empty, lost and inadequate. Stuff did not satisfy, no matter how much. Others left disappointment and broken bonds in the reality of imperfect relationships. Self-reliance and gratification proved to reveal it was not enough and there was still an empty hole inside.
I AM ALL ABOUT MISSIONS BECAUSE I KNOW THEY WORK!
God used an Amazon Medical Mission to open my heart to Him and a meaningful life for something greater than myself.
Despair, depression and
emptiness turned to joy, fulfillment and purpose. Now I proclaim the 'Truth' of God's love, mercy and grace,
and eternal salvation awaits with a new life in Jesus Christ
If you think accepting Jesus will take the 'FUN' out your
life – rest assured it’s the complete opposite! Jesus is the author of everything, including FUN!
Called to 'GO' ~ in the Name of Jesus Christ
I heard the Lord asking, “Whom should I send as a messenger to this people? Who
will go for us?” I said, “Here I am.
Send me.” Isaiah 6:8 (NLT)
Since that April day when I returned from the Amazon and made a decision to change my mind and direction about God and accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior, my life
has never been the same. I like to say that 'Jesus has given me the world,
' pairing my love of adventure with a desire to share His transforming gift with others ~ here, there and everywhere across the world.
Over 6 years ago God opened the door to e3 Partners Ministry and I am privileged to serve alongside amazing brothers and sisters in Christ.e3 Orality - Storying the Bible.
In 2013 God called me to serve full-time as a Missionary (originally I started in an HR leadership role
), and in the course of that time revealed to me it would be on our e3 Oral Strategy Team. e3 Orality serves in combined efforts with other e3 Strategies, including e3 Medical, Community Transformation, and our Priceless Initiative, while implementing our ST4T (Story Training-for-Trainers
) Model in the field.Our e3 Medical initiatives
take medical professionals across the world to share the love of Jesus in a physical way to sick and hurting people while sharing the eternal gift of healing that can only be found in the power of Jesus.
Our Priceless Initiative
educates people about the real and growing danger human trafficking imposes on adults and children who are imprisoned and forced into a horrific world of abuse and slavery for sex and profit.Our I am Second Ministry
takes Jesus to unexpected places and reaches across the world and across the street.
Sharing Christ Jesus, planting churches and 'making disciples that make disciples
' to the 4th generation and beyond is our foremost goal, because no matter how healthy someone is we all die; no matter how great our vision is, if we miss Jesus we've missed seeing the most important thing. Eternity is only a breath away - we just don't know which breath! Make an impact with me!
From the USA to South America, Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East, I am 'called' to GO and share the message of 'Truth' ....until the whole world hears!
I am blessed with prayer and financial partners who undergird by ministry and enable me to go in the name of Jesus. Come join my team
... and together we can change lives eternally! ABOUT YOUR MONTHLY FINANCIAL SUPPORT
