To have a NEW thing, you must let go of the OLD thing!

Editor's Heart for February 2024

[Thus says the Lord,] "Do not remember the former things, Nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert." ~ Isaiah 43:18-19 (NKJV)

Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. ~Philippians 3:13-14 (NKJV)
Recently, I heard a Pastor say, "God is in the business of doing NEW things!" Our Almighty God is always fresh, always relevant, always moving! As His children and His ambassadors in this world, it's vital that we stay in touch with what He's doing in us, to us, through us, and around us. But we can't grab hold of the new things He's doing if our hands and hearts are still full of what he did last week or last year or (for some of us seasoned saints) even 20 years ago. There's not a thing wrong with having cherished memories and looking fondly back at "the good old days". The Israelites built an altar to God using stones of remembrance (Joshua 4:1-8) at Joshua's instruction. These stones were to commemorate God's love and faithfulness throughout the 40-year journed through the desert. But the Israelites didn't stay in the desert... they moved forward into the new thing, the new land God was giving them.

Are you holding on to a season that is finished? Are your hands and heart full of the old? Do you need to release your grip on what was so you can take hold of what is and is to come? Be encouraged! Make it a declaration today: "Lord, I'm letting go of these things so I can take hold of Your NOW!"

Repentance Call New York/Maryland

The Repentance Call Mission Trip to New York and Maryland will launch on March 31, 2024, and return victoriously on April 7, 2024. Plenty of time to storm those streets! It's never to early to begin praying and sowing into this essential outreach. Various sources, including articles in the New York times, boast of the spiritual diversity available in New York and talk openly about spiritualism and mediums operating there. Maryland is known as "The Birthplace of Religious Freedom" and was established as a refuge from religious persecution. Baltimore is the birthplace of the Ouija board; and it's reported that spiritualism and the growth of West African religions are currently on the rise there.

Pray for the churches/ministries in the host city:
• For laborers to be sent into the harvest. (Matt 8:38)
• To return to their first love and have the fire of God rekindled.
• To have God’s heart for the lost.
• Renewed desire to proclaim the gospel in their own city.
• To not be ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Pray for the RC Team:
• All boldness and clarity to speak the Word of God. (Acts 4:29)
• Health and safety of the team.
• Spiritual preparation for the mission.
• Gentleness, patience, and humility to correct those who are in error. (2 Tim. 2:24-26)
• An open door for the Word to be preached. (Col. 4:2-4)
• To operate in unity and one accord as a team.
• For the world to see the love of God through their love for each other.
• For all financial needs for the mission trip to be met.

Pray for the lost in the host city:
• To receive salvation, deliverance, baptism in the Holy Spirit, healing. These things are the will of God, therefore we can ask with boldness.
• To break the spiritual blindness that stops them from seeing and receiving the light of the glory of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. (2 Cor. 4:4)
• Spiritual thirst. (John 4:13-15)
• Ears to hear and hearts to receive. (Luke 8:11-15)
• To receive the truth of God’s impending judgment and to realize that His goodness is drawing them to repentance. (Romans 2:4)

Things that are needed for every mission trip include hotel/motel rooms for team members, transportation costs (rental vehicle and/or gas), food, gospel tracts, other handouts, etc.

Please pray and consider sowing a financial seed toward mission trips.

You'll definitely want to save these dates! This is just the preliminary announcement. More information will be released as the dates approach. Due to the overwhelming response to our Breathe, Mothers gathering last year, we are honoring mothers again this year. This gathering is ONLY for mothers (or mothers-to-be). We will be hosting some truly inspiring mothers who will speak on varied challenges of motherhood. If you are undecided, just ask someone who attended last year! You DON'T want to miss it!
Also, HOPE Louisiana will be hosting our very first Workshop, which will be focused on victims of Domestic Violence and other forms of interpersonal violence. The location is still to be determined, but the date/time is 07/27/2024 at 10 AM. And without giving away too much information just yet... the workshop will include and experiential enactment of DV scenarios!

Both of these encounters will be RSVP for space and preparation purposes. The links for reservations will be available on social media and ticketing venues as the dates approach!

There is ALWAYS a need...


We are ALWAYS assembling care packs to have available at all times for giving as led and able. All sorts of items are needed: wash cloth, wipes, soap, shampoo, conditioner, razors, deodorant, tooth paste, tooth brushes, socks, sunscreen, bug spray, dental floss, hair brushes, combs, lotion, grooming products like nail clippers and files, maxi pads, tampons etc etc etc… and Gospel tracts. Not only do these care packs distribute essential personal items to those in need, they open a door for talking about Jesus.

I'd also like to mention that as needs are brought to us, we post on social media to give all an opportunity to meet those needs. If YOU or someone you know has an immediate need, please reach out by any of the means mentioned in this newsletter. We thank those who have sown in the past. May the Lord bless you all for your generosity!
