FLM Afrikaans “Our Flaws without Judgment” + Slovakian PRAISE

Dear Partners, it has been a few months since being a worker@home and I am enjoying everything about it:) Even the challenges or trials I sometimes face shows me that He is in control.

I know I have maybe said this a thousand times, but I would never have pictured myself here at this moment, saying thank you to each and every one of you for your financial support to make all of this possible.

The Lord works in so many ways through each and every one of you and I know that one of the ways is expanding the ministry here in South Africa.

There have so many attacks from all sides and though we may sometimes feel discouraged, I know that He has wonderful blessings for us just around the corner.

I am ordering a few books every few months or so for women who live in my country but do not always have access to the internet here in my country and recently I have bought a few By the Word of their Testimony.

Wow, so many success stories because of the truth of His Word that is taught here and because women in crisis come here to find their True Love. To experience a fullness they have never felt before because that hole that is meant to be filled by our dearest Lord is empty in their lives.

Here is a Praise Report from someone from South African who is currently busy with her 1st course.

“For your husband is your Maker, whose name is the LORD of hosts; and your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel, who is called the God of all the earth. For the LORD has called you, like a wife forsaken and grieved in spirit, even like a wife of one’s youth when she is rejected, says your God”—Isaiah 54:4-6

This is encouraging to me to know that I can look at Him as my heavenly husband, especially in this time that I have been forsaken by my earthly husband, it is encouraging to know that The Lord will fulfil the loneliness that I feel with his love, I know that there’s no greater Love than his Love, I know that I can run into his arms and he will welcome me with His sweet embrace. I know that he will fill me up with his peace that transcends all human understanding. I am safe knowing that I lack nothing with God in My life, I want to experience his full love and become His Bride.

There’s no better love than the Lord’s Love, He created you and me and he loves us unconditionally. He accepts us with our flaws without judgment.

Sharika came here and her story is heartbreaking, her FH not even contacting his children and her family pushing her to sue him for maintenance and today I saw she has completed an application to become a partner. She has come so far since first we met and I know it is all because He is becoming her First Love.

Another PRAISE “EH will Pay When the Lease is Up!”

I’m taking Course 1 and I want to Praise God for my Financial Situation. It’s taken me too long to just praise the Lord for His goodness.

One month ago my EH walked out of our marriage and as I was totally dependant on him financially or so I thought at the time, I was completely devastated. However, during course 1 I learnt to let go and to trust completely in the Lord so I stopped pursuing or nagging EH for financial needs.

I was told to leave the apartment and with no income was stressed.I gave it all up to God and just yesterday my EH asked me to look for an apartment that he will pay for when the lease is up! I was just floored at the way God works. He totally proved to me He owns all the finances. Am trusting Him for a job or special project to keep me going.

I praise my HH because all I have needed His hand keeps providing. I trust Him for everything and anything that I need and He has kept me afloat. My HH owns everything and I own nothing. I bless your Holy name, Father.

Psalm 27:13-14 KJV “I would have fainted, unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart. Wait, I say, on the Lord!”

~  Ellen in South Africa

Oh, dearest Lord, words will never be enough to tell You what is in my heart. I am so thankful that You opened this door for me. Every time I think of how far You have brought me and this ministry, I am in awe. It is beyond what I have ever imagined. And the best of it, is I know that You are just getting started, You still have so much planned and I am waiting in anticipation. I love you with all my heart:)

2 Timothy 2:20-22. Do you feel that you could never go into ministry because you are not good with encouraging other women or maybe you are not very good with computers or any other thing you can think of that might make you feel incapable of working for Him. Well, I am here to tell You, that He has a space for each and every one of you. When He made His plans, each and every one of us was included. And the best part of it is all you have to do is surrender yourself to Him and trust and obey Him and He will do the rest. Have you ever worked for someone like that? Never? Well, you should try it, it is fantastic!!!

Slovakian PRAISE

Do you remember back in October, when I shared the details of our Slovak ministry and the books they print and publish in Slovakia?  RMI: Translations Ministry. We just heard more praise from that part of the world when Marian sent us an update.

Hello RMI,

A few days ago, we have finally printed My beloved (1000 books). We have tried to improve the original translation, so now we find the text more comprehensible and clear.

Now we offer 4 titles (in the Slovak language):

How God Will Restore Your Marriage for Women

How God Will Restore Your Marriage for Men

Wise Woman

My Beloved

We offer these books on our webpage: www.bookselling.sk. Last year, we sold approximately 400 books! We try to keep these books affordable, so we offer them at price really close to our printing cost. Last year we were in loss (about 2.500 €), but now we have around 2.000 books printed. If there is any profit, we will, of course, send our 10% tithe as agreed.

Be blessed and thank you for all your wonderful work,


Hello Marian,

How good to hear from you again and such news!!! Incredible to see the My Beloved in paperback in addition to the other three tangibles offered on www.bookselling.sk. We know that the Lord is going to honor you for keeping your book cost low for affordability sake and therefore reaching a wider audience who need His word and encouragement!

Do you want me to send it to you in Word (or PDF) – as our previous books?

Yes, please!! We’d love to have the Word/PDF document for My Beloved (the paperback layout and digital ebook format if possible?) Thank you so much!! We are excited to share your encouraging news.
