Have you ever been to Niagara Falls? Oh, there is no place where I feel the sheer, unstoppable power of God like I do standing by the Horseshoe Falls. It roars with such intensity. In fact, the peak flow of water there was recorded at 6,004 cubic meters per second. Girl, we can’t even think that fast!
Yet, I will tell you this … the power of God at the Buffalo Fresh Grounded Faith event was also absolutely amazing!
Sister, the Lord was in that place all weekend. He healed hearts, broke chains, and brought all 1,400 of us closer together in Him as sisters. He even drew 18 women to Him through His grace. We have 18 new sisters in Christ! Yeehaw and hallelujah!
Many thanks to our amazing Local Conference Coordinator, Ashlee Tomaro. Also, we are grateful to our host church, Eastern Hills Church, and our ten co-host churches. My team and I appreciate all the ways you served and made us feel at home!
God’s Word was real and powerful among us. Here are just two examples.
There was a lady at FGF whose son was killed by a drunk driver just last year. Can you imagine her heartbreak? His birthday was on September 30. When she pulled the Compassion packet out of her bag Friday night to pray for that child who needed a sponsor, in her bag was a little boy with the same birthday as her son. God was so personal to give her another boy to love.
Also, listen to this … another dear woman had lost her precious daughter to suicide just months earlier. Her daughter’s favorite movie was Shrek. She and her daughter had come to the U.S. from a southeast Asian island. So, when she opened her bag to pull out the Compassion packet to pray Friday night, guess what she found? A little girl from the same island with the name … wait for it … wait for it … Fiona! You know, like from Shrek? The heartbroken mom just knew God was giving her a gift that weekend.
Sister, those were only two stories of what God did! We are also praising Him for the 141 women who chose to renew their commitments to Christ and all 96 of the children rescued from poverty through Compassion International!
If you were there, share with your peeps what God did! If you’ve never been to a Fresh Grounded Faith, please come. I want you to experience the power of God that is even grander than what flows through Niagara falls! In fact, I was even thinking of you while I was there … watch this video.
