Although it has been a year since I have posted a blog, that doesn't mean we have been quiet.
Last year was a challenging year. My mom passed and I was finishing a dissertation about the Women of Destiny program. I was very busy with the activities and our businesses. I also made a trip to Italy with my two daughters in June. The day I got home, my mother passed. She was 97 and is now with Jesus. She lived a blessed full life.
The others in the ministry remained involved in activites. Mary, the international missionary returned home in May and is now working and living in Fresno, CA.
We are looking forward to all the Lord has for us in 2018. We recently started prayer twice a month in the city and we are hoping to re launch healing prayer ministry. We are building the team now and looking for the location the Lord would have us. We like to be outside traditional church walls and in the marketplace. As the Fresno chapter of Hollywood prayer network, we continue to pray for the entertainment industry and support the faith based movies (and redcarpet events) that are held in Fresno. We remain involved in prayer conference calls, prayer walking and cooperate citywide gatherings. We enjoy partnering with other ministries and come along side them in a variety of ways.
As many know, I am a volunteer urban minister and am multi-vocational. I am blessed to do the work I do with HR ministry because of my husband support and our businesses. I own and operate few social enterprises that have helped fund some of these ministry endeavors. One of these is Escarcege Enterprise which is our hospitality and rental business *see Airbnb website. My husband and I also started another new business-A& M Ranch, where we are raising alpalcas and preparing to build on our 40 acre ranch. We are currently growing oat hay there and raising alpacas at our current home base.I also dream of having a big white tent for ministry events out there! Check out our new website (a work in progress), www.aandmeranch.com.
We are anticipating a lot of NEW this year and looking forward to experience the goodness of God in new ways!
Hope Reformation vision remains the same, to encourage intimacy with God for transformation in all spheres of influence. It is about transforming lives and transforming communities.
