Today I’m in North Carolina…..Please pray for Geneva, Sherry and I as we meet with our NC Butterflies.
I’m also here to speak at a Life Works Conference – LW is a ministry to women in poverty and abuse in NC. Samantha, Founder & Director of LW is also a LUV leader using LUV teaching to help many women experience freedom and restoration in Haywood County, NC. This area has the highest rate of drug addiction in the US. That results in deep rooted problems with broken families, poverty and abuse. Pray the Holy Spirit will move the hearts of those coming from local churches to the conference, to give financially and be willing to help mentor and disciple women and men, needing spiritual healing and restoration.
God is continuing to work following our Avalon Women’s Retreat….

Last Sunday our Pastor invited women to share their experience at the retreat, and showed the video. He then gave a powerful message on freedom from secret sins, wounds and bondages. The altars were full of men and women at both services, responding to his invitation to come forward for healing and freedom!
Over 30 women signed up to join 2 new Love UnVeiled weekly groups. As a result, we have 6 weekly LUV groups meeting in East Orlando this fall.
The Avalon Women’s Retreat helps women in France!
Less than 5% are evangelical believers in France. There very few resources, devotions and materials in French to help French women grow in the Lord, or to equip and empower women.
Marie Carmen and Anne Hoffman, LUV Butterflies and CCC leaders in France, are hosting a national conference – “With ZEAL” – to mobilize 200 women in November. They need help with resources and materials for their conference. Our Avalon Women’s Ministry Leader took up an offering at the Retreat for our French Butterflies. The offering was to help fund translation of Love UnVeiled materials into French.
- Praise God – 1,200 was collected -to translate our Transformation Story Book, and LUV Workbook One Manual.
- Praise God again – hearing about the offering for France, our pastor and Avalon Church offered a matching gift of $1,200 to help with printing LUV Materials in France
God is SO good. His purposes are always deeper and wider than we can imagine! And when He begins a transforming work in our lives – it has far reaching influence…
Praying for women in France!
After our last Workshop in July, Marie Carmen told me “coming to Orlando for Butterfly training is like coming up for air. I take a big gulp of air, breathe it in and hold onto it as I go back into the heaviness and oppression in France!”
Last July – 17 women from 5 different churches in East Orlando came together to pray for Marie Carmen and Anne on the last day of our July Workshop. Our French butterflies were overwhelmed by the love and support they received during our very sweet and powerful prayer time. It was a privilege for us to minister to them on behalf of all those who have suffered such great pain in France recently. They told us that they feel so alone in France and don’t have this kind of support there.
Please continue to pray for the Women’s Conference in France in November called “With Zeal.” Pray for Marie Carmen’s vision for 200 women believers to come from all over France, to receive fresh vision, to be revived in spirit, to be transformed, equipped and empowered to minister to other women in France!! It is a desperate need in France!
Prayer Needs this Week:
- North Carolina 4 days meetings and conferences to encourage our NC Butterflies and God to ignite a fire in the hearts of the believers here.
- Pray for all the women who will join new LUV groups in East Orlando next week and those continuing with the next levels of discipleship. Pray for renewed zeal and passion!
Pray God will provide a place of healing and freedom for men in our churches too.
- Pray the Holy Spirit will draw 200 women in France to the conference in November. Pray God will protect and strengthen and encourage Marie Carmen and Anne.
- Pray the Holy Spirit will anoint the translation of our LUV materials into French for His glory among women!!
Praising God for His mighty power! Thank you again for your prayers and support! I love you!!
