Merry Christmas sweet friends!
As 2016 comes to a close, I would like to share a few things that God has done with KSM this year!
This past July I had the incredible opportunity to travel to Ecuador to speak and minister with Transformados Guayaquil, a local ministry, as well as do a week of missions with a church team from Colorado. Thank you again to everyone who made this trip possible with their generous donations and faithful prayers!
In February we started the KSM Podcast, where I regularly share teaching, message clips, and whatever the Lord puts on my heart. If you haven’t yet listened or become a subscriber to the podcast, you can find it on iTunes, Soundcloud and Google Play Music. This March we released our first Video Devotional Series, and throughout the year I have been a regular speaker at Saturday Night Supper Club.
This year we have been moving forward with plans and team meetings for the Chrysalis House. Chrysalis House of Colorado empowers women recently released from incarceration to join a home community where they are offered a fresh start. It will be a safe place for the ladies to learn their true identity in Christ, receive healing, ministry, counseling, encouragement, and the life skills to set themselves up for success. The Chrysalis House will be a faith-based Residential 1 to 2 year, 4 Phase program that empowers and encourages these women to become the woman and live the life God created them to live. Our goal is that women who complete the Chrysalis House program will have the necessary tools to be successful in the community and never return to jail.
As we enter 2017 we are believing for this vision to become a reality. It remains a huge undertaking so please continue praying for favor, open doors, wisdom and clarity as we continue to move forward with this project. If you would like to partner with KSM to help make Chrysalis House a reality, you may make a financial contribution to the Chrysalis House Fund on our website, or find out other ways you can help here.
I want to thank ALL of our donors who have contributed to KSM in 2016. You make it possible for us to continue to walk out the vision God has given us for KSM and for The Chrysalis House. I ask you as you make decisions about your end of year giving to please prayerfully consider making a tax deductible donation to KSM and supporting the work God is doing through this ministry. There are several easy ways to get involved and donate to the ministry including electronically through our website. We are incredibly grateful for any amount of financial support and we also covet your prayers as we continue to walk in obedience to the specific call of God for KSM and the Chrysalis House.
Dearest friend, my prayer for you this Christmas is that you begin to see the new beginnings God has for you in 2017. As you transition into your new season, I pray that you hear His voice louder than ever before and you know His heart for you in a deeper way.
Love and Hugs,
