Hello Brides!! This is the first PR of our #LALBride Tour that will be posted on Fridays. Yes, Tara and I (Sara) will be posting about everything that He does and everywhere that He leads us—so you can read more about the abundant life that we are living with Him in a hope that you too will pursue the life that He died to give to us!!
“Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us…”
I am so excited that there are already many things to share. To tell you the truth I believe that He had the LALTour planned before I’ve come to be part of this Ministry.
Let’s start from the beginning. In 2008, I was preparing to leave my home country (Brazil) and move to Russia (where I lived for almost three years). While taking care of the process to move to another country, I decided to have lunch with a dear friend. I don’t remember how, but we found ourselves in a prayer group!!!
I didn’t know some of the people in the group, it was the first and last time that I saw them. After the prayer, one person from the group looked at me and said, “The Lord will turn your life upside down, but with that He will lead you to many nations to preach His Word.” At the time, I thought that the “upside down” part was moving to Russia, but soon I forgot about this promise and moved away from Him.
Many things happened in the years after this, especially the last one, my whole life changed and turned upside down. But it was only after receiving an email from the Ministry Team telling me that my HH was about to bless me that I remembered this promise. It came so clear in my mind and I could finally understand that the Lord was fulfilling a promise that He made 10 years ago!! He already knew all the things that would happen in my life to bring me to do what He had planned!
After the email, He brought me to work with Tara as a team \o/\o/ preparing us for the next months that we will spend together! I am so grateful that He is bringing her to Turkey, and amazed at how He is speaking to both our hearts, like leading us to both “fast for favor” in preparation for what has to come!! (Learn more about this and other types of fasting on Day 10 of Course 3.)
Let me share what happened recently, I hope that Tara doesn’t mind 😉 She sent a message telling me that her flight was delayed six hours, but that He was in control of everything and she was waiting for her DOUBLE blessing—and indeed she received it! The first blessing was that He gave her an entire row on the airplane, and also she will be able to rest a night (and shower) in a hotel in London before coming to Turkey!! He is just the perfect HH:)
I was planning to buy my ticket to meet with her, but I felt led to wait. So Nehir (you’ll read about her soon 4/13) who is also excited to meet Tara asked what I was planning to do. When I told her about Tara’s message she just smiled and said: “Canım (honey), you don´t need to buy a ticket because on Friday I’ll go to Antalya to apply for my daughter’s visa and I’ll drop you.”
The ways of the Lord are always higher and better than ours!!! (Jeremiah 29:11)
The last thing that I want to share is what happened while Tara was in the airport. I had finished reading my Bible and it was the time to talk with Him, but I heard a strange sound coming from my phone, it was near the window and on silent mode. When I took my phone, I saw that my phone was calling Tara!!! I wasn’t touching anything, when she answered I was so shocked with the behavior of my phone that instead of saying “Hi” I immediately asked, “Did I call you or did you called me?!” LOL, She was so sweet that she laughed and told me that maybe the Lord called so we may speak. It was so unreal what happened that I believe that indeed was Him!! It was a special moment, Thank you, Beloved!
If you live in Turkey or any part of Europe send us an email so that we can see if He is leading us to meet and fellowship together. We’ve already heard from women who live near Paris! We also heard from a former, dear sweet minister who wants to meet in Vienna!
If you are new here and want to know more about the abundant life, please check our courses and books in the Restoration Fellowship link.
Until next Friday!
“…And who knows whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” Esther 4:14
“but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.” Isaiah 40:31
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8-9
“For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. That is why it is through him that we utter our Amen to God for his glory. ” 2 Corinthians 1:20 ESV
“Instead of your shame you will have a DOUBLE portion, and instead of humiliation they will shout for joy over their portion Therefore they will possess a DOUBLE portion in their land, Everlasting joy will be theirs. For I, the LORD, love justice, I hate robbery . . . And I will faithfully give them their recompense And make an everlasting covenant with them.”
From there He’s shown them local tours to take, which we’ve asked them to share more about, before beginning their official tour of traveling when the head to Athens, Greece.
After Greece, they fly up to Dublin, Ireland taking the train north to Belfast, Ireland before crossing the Irish Sea to Glasgow and Edinburgh, Scotland.
Then Sara & Tara will take the train down to London, England before heading to the European continent to see where He leads them next! It appears He’s orchestrated meeting two brides in Paris, France and also another bride (and former minister) in Vienna, Austria.
Be sure to FOLLOW His brides:
If you’re one of His brides too— consider meeting to fellowship with them along their Abundant Life Journey throughout Europe.
If you are serious about meeting, please email:
We can let you know the dates and locations of where they will be and forward your email on to them.
