Start Now to Have Now-Faith

Tobias feels God calling him to begin a new work there and I am praying about what Cinderella Released Ministries can do to be part in helping with this new work. As he shared I felt my heart quicken. So, we are praying for God to do a mighty work there. Please join me in prayer for the area of Kabichbich. There is a piece of land with a building, water, and electricity that would be perfect for a church. Please join me in prayer for Kabichbich!

Crackers with Ava…

One of the things I do each morning Monday through Friday is watch Ava while Amy homeschools Jonah and Hudson. She and I usually go outside (so she doesn’t hear her mom’s voice) and spend time walking and looking around. Before school started back we would walk into the heart of activity, and after we just walk around the field or stay within our compound.

Aim to please the LORD…

Roman Roads & Returning Soldiers

One day a wedding, three days later…a dearth. This has been more than an exciting month! I don’t know about you but my plans have been rearranged, turned upside down and am certain I still don’t have enough toilet paper stockpiled.

Fathers, We Need You! You are Soul Care Providers

Face of God

When I was in Asia recently and looking into the faces of my two grandson’s Jonah and Hudson, I encountered total unconditional love and unspeakable joy. I observed how they cling to their mother when they are tired and hungry, but aren’t afraid to explore and be themselves in the presence of their mom and…

What is next, Lord?

In 1985 the Lord came into my office and spoke audibly to me at the moment my one-year-old had stopped breathing and turned completely blue. He spoke three words to me, “Marlene, it is time,” then my knees buckled and I hit the ground in a repentance prayer. Deliverance came from many things I’m not proud nor ashamed to share with others.

Like a Signal in the Sky….The Power of the Cross Never Dies!

I’m looking back a few years ago, when I took this picture.  I had spent a year in Ohio working at a large ministry and the experience and friendships that I made while I was there are not measurable.  There was probably not anything in Ohio that I didn’t love!  I thought I was going…
