Mission Trip To Belize December, 2014 - "Building The Sisterhood For Christ"

Friends, greetings in the name of our Lord!

I am truly excited and ecstatic about the mission trip to Belize in December of 2014! This mission has been years in the making, GOD has been preparing me for this and now the time has come to carry it through.

BUILDING THE SISTERHOOD FOR CHRIST 
1 Thessalonians 5:14, "And we urge you, brothers and sisters, warn those who are idle and disruptive, encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone."


Sis. Therese Warrick, "Seeking God's Heart and Purpose"
Belize City
I pray you will support this mission financially or with any other donations such as hygiene and beauty products, backpacks and shoes for school children.  I am looking for a sponsor who can donate adult-sized T-shirts for this mission (Small, Medium, Large, X-Large and XXLarge).  

A group of my sisters-in-Christ and I will be embarking on Belize City and will be ministering to women and teen girls through Revival, Evangelism and Conference.

We are raising money for our Mission Trip to Belize, "BUILDING THE SISTERHOOD FOR CHRIST" in December, 2014. The mission will be to empower women and teen girls through Revival, Evangelism and Conference in Belize City. 

We will also be taking gifts (hygiene and beauty products) for the women and teen girls in Belize.

Sermonette: "Seeking God's Heart And Purpose"

GREETINGS PASTORS, SISTERS-IN-CHRIST AND FRIENDS: 



I BRING YOU GREETINGS FROM LEXINGTON, KY AND FROM MY CHURCH FAMILY AT MT. CALVARY MISSIONARY BAPTIST CHURCH.

I AM SO EXCITED TO BE HERE AND MOST GRATEFUL THAT I AM PRIVILEGED TO GLORIFY AND SERVE GOD IN BELIZE. HALLELUJAH.

WELL, AS YOU MAY OR MAY NOT KNOW, MARCH IS BEING CELEBRATED AS WOMEN’S MONTH WORLDWIDE. SO, HOW FITTING FOR US TO GATHER AS WOMEN ON THIS LAST FRIDAY IN MARCH!

I KNOW YOU ALL ALSO HAD THE 20,000 STRONG EMPOWERMENT RALLY TO TELL MEN, THE GOVERNMENT, THE CHURCH AND THE SCHOOL, “IMAGINE A DAY WITHOUT WOMEN”.  WHILE I AM ALL FOR EMPOWERMENT OF WOMEN, AND I DIDN’T COME ALL THIS WAY TO TALK ABOUT THAT, BUT I AM HERE TO SAY, “IMAGINE A DAY WITHOUT GOD IN OUR LIVES.”

I TURN YOUR ATTENTION TO TWO SISTERS, TWO WIVES THAT HAVE CERTAINLY GOTTEN MY ATTENTION.  I AM TALKING ABOUT A WOMAN CALLED HANNAH AND THE OTHER PENINAH. 

IN THE FIRST BOOK OF SAMUEL, CHAPTER 1, THE BIBLE TELLS US THAT HANNAH WAS MARRIED TO THIS BROTHA, ELKANAH. NOW LADIES, STAY WITH ME AS WE JOURNEY…. BECAUSE ELKANAH WAS QUITE “THE MAN”. YEP, HE WAS NOT ONLY MARRIED TO HANNAH, BUT HE WAS ALSO MARRIED TO PENINAH.  THE BIBLE TELLS US THAT PENINAH HAD THIS BROTHA’S BABIES (MY RESEARCH INDICATED 10 SONS) BUT HANNAH DID NOT.

UH OH, I DEFINITELY SMELL A RAT RIGHT HERE. SO PENINAH NOW THINKING SHE IS ALL THAT, WOULD THROW PHRASE AND PROVOKE HANNAH YEAR AFTER YEAR …NANA NA NA NANA… NANANANANA….. “I GOT HIS BABIES AND YOU HAVE NONE ….NANANANANANA…..”
LADIES, WE ARE GOING TO KEEP IT REAL UP IN HERE. HOW MANY OF YOU IN HERE IS A PENINAH? SHOW OF HANDS ….NO JUST KIDDING….BUT RAISE YOUR HAND INTERNALLY. HAVE YOU THROWN PHRASES AT ANOTHER WOMAN? LET ME TELL YOU ….. AND HEY, IT IS QUITE OKAY IF I AM THE ONLY ONE THAT COULD SAY YEAH, THERE HAS BEEN PENINAH IN ME. BACK IN MY DAY, OH YEA, I WAS NOTHING NICE.  YOU SEE, I HAVE BEEN ON BOTH SIDES OF THE COIN (THE PROVOKING AND THE TAKING). YEP. I HAD A RELATIONSHIP FOR OVER FIVE YEARS WITH A MARRIED MAN AND THEN WHEN I WAS MARRIED MY HUSBAND STEPPED OUT ON ME. BUT THE DEVIL IS A LIAR IN BOTH INSTANCES. GOD DEALT WITH ME SEVERELY AND BROUGHT ME TO MY KNEES.  IT WAS WHEN I REPENTED AND CONFESSED AND SOUGHT HIS HEART AND PURPOSE  THAT HE DELIVERED ME FROM THE HAND OF THE ENEMY.  GLORY.

THE BIBLE GOES ON TO TELL US THAT ELKANAH WOULD HAVE HANNAH DOUBLE PORTION BUT GOODNESS THAT ONLY MADE PENINAH MORE JEALOUS.  HAHAAHHAA …. I AM LAUGHING BECAUSE I REMEMBER GROWING UP AND MY SISTER WOULD HAVE TO SHARE ¼ POUND OF CHEESE BETWEEN THE SEVEN OF US!!! AND EACH OF US WAS LOOKING TO MAKE SURE THE OTHER DID NOT GET A BIGGER PIECE.  MY SISTER ELEANOR THE OLDEST DID HER BEST TO DIVIDE THAT CHEESE IN EQUAL SHARES! 

SEE, I HEAR PENINAH SINGING THE LADY SAW SONG, “I’VE GOT YOUR MAN AND THERE’S NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT.” I HEAR PENINAH TELLING HANNAH, I HAVE HIS BABIES AND YOU DON’T HAVE ANY FOR HIM; I HEAR PENINAH TELLING HANNAH YOUR WOMB IS CLOSED AND MINE IS OPEN. I HEAR PENINAH TELLING HANNAH HE DOESN'T WANT WANT YOU ….YOU CAN’T EVEN BEAR A CHILD FOR HIM. I HEAR PENINAH TELLING HANNAH YOU ARE GOOD FOR NOTHING AND WORTHLESS.

LADIES, HOW MANY TIMES HAVE WE HEARD THOSE WORDS OR WE ARE THE PENINAH, GUILTY OF SPEAKING THOSE WORDS TO ANOTHER WOMAN? YOU SEE, INSTEAD OF LETTING MEN IMAGINE A DAY WITHOUT WOMEN, WHY DON’T WE AS WOMEN IMAGINE A DAY WHEN WE SUPPORT AND ENCOURAGE, INSPIRE AND UPLIFT EACH OTHER?

NOW, I AM NOT LETTING ELKANAH OFF THE HOOK THAT EASY. THAT BROTHER IS IN THE MIDDLE …..URGGHHHH…. HE JUST PISSED ME RIGHT OFF BUT HEY, WHAT DO YOU EXPECT FROM A MAN WHEN HE HAS TWO WIVES? 

LADIES, WHAT ARE WE TO EXPECT FROM OUR MEN WHEN WE KNOW HE HAS US AND BEKA ACROSS TOWN? LADIES, WE MUST ENCOURAGE EACH OTHER BECAUSE IN THESE CIRCUMSTANCES, THE MAN’S MOUTH IS MUM. 

THE BIBLE DOES TELL US THAT ELKANAH LOVED HANNAH MORE. HE FAVORED HER MORE BUT THE MOST DISTURBING IS THAT HE NEVER PRAYED FOR HIS WIFE. HE DIDN’T PUT PENINAH IN CHECK (GUESS HE WANTED TO MAKE SURE HE HAD SOMEWHERE TO SLEEP AND GET HIS WAY).  ELKANAH JUST RUBS ME THE WRONG WAY AND THEN I REALLY GOT PISSED WHEN HE ASKED HANNAH IF HE DOESN’T MEAN MORE TO HER THAN TEN SONS.  SO INSENSITIVE. UH, I TELL YOU WHAT …. I WOULD HAVE …… HAHAHAAHA ….. LET ME LEAVE THAT ALONE ….. YOU ALL KNOW WHAT I WOULD HAVE DONE!!!  GLORY TO GOD FOR MY SALVATION.
 
HANNAH IS SUCH A CLASS ACT. THIS SISTER’S ACTION RIGHT HERE IS THE EXAMPLE OF HOW WE SHOULD BEHAVE AS LADIES.  SEE, THROUGHOUT THE SCRIPTURE THERE IS NO RECORDING OF HANNAH COPPING ANY ATTITUDE WITH PENINAH.  IN FACT, HANNAH DID THE MOST ADMIRABLE THING. SHE SAID ENOUGH IS ENOUGH AND TURNED TO GOD.   HANNAH WENT TO SEEK GOD’S HEART AND PURPOSE FOR HER LIFE,  GLORY, HANNAH REALIZED THAT ONE, HER HUSBAND HAS NO IDEA AND NO BACKBONE; AND TWO, THAT SHE WILL SHUT DOWN PENINAH AND CONCENTRATE ON HER PURPOSE WITH GOD.

SISTERS ,THE BIBLE TELLS US THAT HANNAH SOUGHT THE LORD AND MADE A VOW WITH HIM.  YES, THAT SISTER SOUGHT GOD’S PURPOSE AND SHE PRAYED.

SHE WAS PRAYING IN HER HEART AND HER LIPS WERE MOVING BUT HER VOICE WAS NOT HEART.  ELI THE PRIEST WAS SITTING ON HIS CHAIR BY THE DOORPOST OF THE LORD’S HOUSE. HE THOUGHT SHE WAS DRUNK. HE DIDN’T KNOW THAT THIS SISTER CAME TO THE LORD’S HOUSE TO SEEK GOD’S HEART AND PURPOISE, SO WHAT HE WILL ASK HER ….HOW LONG ARE YOU GOING TO STAY DRUNK? THE PRIEST ELI WENT FURTHER AND TOLD HER TO PUT AWAY HER WINE.   I LOVE HANNAH’S RESPONSE THGOUGH …. SHE SAID, NOT SO. SHE SAID BOLDLY AND NOT ASHAMED, “I AM A WOMAN WHO IS DEEPLY TROUBLED. I HAVE NOT BEEN DRINKING WINE OR BEER BUT I WAS POURING OUT MY SOUL TO THE LORD.  SHE SAID, DO NOT TAKE YOUR SERVANT FOR A WICKED WOMAN. I HAVE BEEN PRAYING HERE OUT OF MY GREAT ANGUISH AND GRIEF, 

MY BELIZEAN FRIENDS, AS WE LOOK AROUND WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THIS COUNTRY, WE ARE KILLING EACH OTHER. THE BELIZE MEDIA DOES NOT REPORT ON THIS KILLING OF WOMEN AGAINST WOMEN, THEY ONLY REPORT ON OUR YOUTH KILLING EACH OTHER AND NOW THEY ARE TAKEN UP WITH THE LGBT AGENDA. THERE IS MUCH MORE THAN US WANTING MEN TO “IMAGINE A DAY WITHOUT WOMEN”. 

THIS IS THE TIME FOR US TO SEEK GOD’S HEART AND PURPOSE FOR OUR LIVES. HANNAH SOUGHT GOD’S HEART AND PURPOSE BECAUSE SHE REALIZED HER HUSBAND CANNOT SOLVE HER PROBLEMS AND DEFINITELY THE OTHER WOMAN DOES NOT CARE WHAT PROBLEMS SHE HAS.  HANNAH TURNED TO THE LORD IN PRAYER AND HE HEARD HER CRY. AND HE BLESSED HER WITH CHILDREN, THE FIRST BEING SAMUEL.

SISTERS, WE ARE KILLING EACH OTHER DAILY WITH OUR PENINAH ATTITUDES.

JAMES, THE BROTHER OF JESUS AND BONDSERVANT OF JESUS CHRIST, TELLS US THAT THE TONGUE IS THE SMALLEST MEMBER OF OUR BEING BUT IT IS THE MOST POWERFUL AND IT IS SET ON FIRE BY HELL.  JAMES’ EPISTLE TELLS US THAT ONLY GOD CAN TAME OUR TONGUES. 

LET US SEEK GOD’S HEART AND PURPOSE FOR OUR LIVES. I CAN TELL YOU IT WAS THE BEST DECISION I COULD HAVE MADE FOR MY LIFE.  I KNOW WHAT IT IS LIKE TO BE HURTING, PHYSICALLY, EMOTIONALLY, FINANCIALLY … I KNOW.  SEEKING GOD’S HEART AND PURPOSE LIKE HANNAH DID, WAS THE BEST THING I COULD HAVE DONE FOR MYSELF AS A WOMAN.  YOU SEE, WHEN WE SEEK GOD’S HEART AND PURPOSE, HE DIRECTS US, HE COVERS US, HE SHIELDS US, HE CLOSES THE MOUTHS OF THE PENINAHS.

ARE YOU TIRED OF STRUGGLING WITH LIFE’S UPS AND DOWNS?
NEED A NEW BEGINNING?
WELL, YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE BECAUSE IT IS TIME FOR YOU TO SEEK GOD’S HEART AND PURPOSE.  

YOU SEE, FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON THAT WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE. AMEN. HALLELUJAH. GLORY TO GOD.

JESUS CHRIST WAS CRUCIFIED FOR OUR SINS, HE WAS BURIED IN A BORROWED TOMB, BUT GLORY HALLELUJAH ON THE THIRD DAY HE AROSE FROM THE GRAVE AND IS NOW SEATED AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD, INTERCEDING ON OUR BEHALF, 


GOD IS WAITING FOR US TO SEEK HIM.  FRIENDS, JESUS IS COMING BACK, HE IS COMING BACK, HE IS COMING BACK LIKE A THIEF IN THE NIGHT. WILL YOU BE READY?
