This weekend two of my friends, Terri and Mrs. Ann, and myself stepped out in faith and hosted our first IF:Local. As of two months ago I had never even heard of an IF:Local. Somehow I was led to the IF:Gathering website and my heart meshed with their hope to equip women for Christ. God has been moving my heart in this area for the past two years. Actually that is exactly the heart of this site: living that Christ life. We prayed about hosting an IF:Local, God confirmed it three times and so we obeyed. 50 women registered. Women gathered one day all for one man..... Jesus! Women from 13 different churches coming together and hungry for more of Him.
This picture above is a picture of community! This is a picture of His Kingdom on earth as it is in Heaven. We prayed and believed that each would receive a fresh new personal word from the Lord, that each woman would taste and see the goodness of Him. This happened. God showed up and met these women personally. We felt His strong arms wrap around us and His sweet presence in the room. We laughed, we cried, we received!
Thank you, Jennie Allen, and all the wonderful speakers who made our IF:Local a God-breathed gathering.

Who am I? Galatians 2:20 does a great job of summing up who I am. My life is His, the One who loves me and gave Himself for me . In return, I want to be all He wants me to be and do all He wants me to do on this side of Heaven.
