EVENT DATE: Mar 09, 2017
Hello, my name is Rebecca Lambes. I am a member of Blessed Hope Baptist Church. I have attended this church off and on for over 16 years during some very turbulent parts of my life. I have gone faithfully since I have given my life once again into Jesus’s hands over the last 5 years. I was saved at the age of 8 in my Grandmother’s home. She had a wonderful testimony and although I strayed from the path, I truly believe I was saved, as every day that I made worldly choices, the Holy Spirit convicted my heart. I had some traumatic things happen to me and I felt that God had turned His back on me. I realized years later, He had not and that I, in fact, had not fully trusted Him. I have since rededicated my life to His service and am trying my hardest to ensure that my children do not have to follow the wide path I did. It truly blesses me to see them walking with God and strengthening their relationship with our Lord and Savior. I am writing to you today, with a plea and two requests. One is simple. It is for prayer. For me, for my family and for the journey I am about to embark upon. Our church had three of our members last year join Medical Missions Outreach in Peru for a medical mission’s trip. I have two aunts and an uncle that surrendered their lives to missions and I have always had a burden for missions. A few days ago, one of the young ladies, who happens to be one of my closest friends and also feels a call to be a missionary to Peru, came and asked if I would like to accompany her next March (March 9-18, 2017) to Peru with the same group. They will be going to Trujillo, Peru in March to hold a free medical clinic for those who need desperate medical attention that they would otherwise not be able to receive. During this time, the gospel is given and everyone who is seen is given the good news. When Angie asked me, I was like, “YES”, this is my chance to give back to God, who has saved me from so much and shown such grace and mercy towards me. Then she told me it would be $2500 for the trip. My balloon began to deflate a little. I have 7 children and 2 grandchildren, not to mention a husband. Could we afford this? I could not sleep as I kept asking God if this was his will. I decided that if I was meant to go, only He could open the doors that would get me there. Here comes the second request. I am trying to raise the money to go. Please pray and ask God, what He would have to do. Any questions, please feel free to call, email, text, snapchat or any other form of technology that can get ahold of me. I am an open book and am just excited to see God’s will.
