As much as I LOVE LOVE LOVE writing and publishing Gospel tracts, devotionals and books and doing Video Devotionals and streets ministry with and without my handicapped streets ministry doggies and one-on-one ministry, I have been tied up the past few days with trying to help lay the foundation for what will by God’s grace be the 3rd in-house mini print shop in a beautiful co-laborer’s home in a different part of the country. There is now one in the northeast, one in the southeast, and one in the Midwest. My, how the Lord has grown this ministry! And how exceedingly thankful I am to Him for my precious co-laborers around the country!
I used to have tons of rescued dogs and one printer, paper cutter, and stapler which I would use to prepare little booklets to bring to a homeless breakfast and church service once a week. And I would print my main Finding the Light Gospel tract. When the Lord sent me out on the road full-time with my beloved special needs ministry doggies, I shipped my equipment to my first destination and set up shop in a hotel room!
Just over three years later, the Lord has blessed me with 6 main co-laborers helping with all this and more I believe on the way. My Good News Daily goes out worldwide online via email and Facebook, I don’t have the printing equipment anymore as the Lord leads me from place to place for streets ministry and writing and Video Devotionals, and my pocket-sized themed devotionals and Lara Love’s Good News Daily go out nationwide to over 20 states so far to prisons, jails, homeless shelters, rescue missions, street preachers, to myself to distribute, and to anywhere and anyone the Lord desires.
The Lord is rapidly growing the ministry locally, nationally, and internationally, and it’s in all honesty pretty daunting and scary sometimes as I wonder how I will keep up with it all. That’s when the Lord reminds me HE leads, guides, and provides for me and this ministry. And I am to put my faith, trust, hope, and confidence IN HIM!
The past few days, the devil has come at me exceedingly hard to try to get me to quit. He has tried different tactics all to no avail. The Lord also showed me I had fallen back into the flesh in a significant area ministry-related, and thankfully He brought me to swift repentance and beautiful freedom again.
I am in ENORMOUS NEED of PRAYER, PEOPLE SUPPORT ONLINE AND LOCALLY IN SC, VA, and TEXAS, and a BIG INCREASE IN DONATIONS BOTH MONTHLY AND AS THE LORD LEADS OVER TIME!
I am pretty wiped out right now from all the growth, from how hard I tend to work, from my usual not sleeping well, and from the attacks from the devil. But I am so incredibly excited for as soon as the Lord gives me the green light and I have gotten enough rest to press on in my writing, Video Devotionals, and streets ministry.
Thank you in advance for your love, encouragement, prayers, and financial sowing into this ministry!
love & blessings,
