A Message from the WLD

SET FREE.. sounds so good, feels so great!  In a world where so many issues threaten to discourage us &  Satan tells us “you can’t”, reminds us of all the times we have failed, and tries to steal our joy & diminish our power – His grace SETs us FREE (AMAZING GRACE).   The mind is the battlefield and the Lord gives us the armor, empowers us to overcome and be set free from fears, negative thoughts, guilt and temptations.We cherish  your prayers for this E-124 weekend as we know many carry heavy loads, & JESUS is the answer!  Greater is He that is within us, we will praise the hurt away!  
We pray that as we emphasize this theme in teaming, the weekend, and the FOURTH DAY  there will be NO FEAR of heavy issues, no need for those matters to fill our minds with negative thoughts or steal our joy and love for God and others.  He gives us the tools we need.  Thank you, Jesus!  
He created the awesome BEE who ergonomically should NOT be able to fly.. our burdens are often so heavy that the world would say you can’t go on.. but with His grace we are SET FREE and we fly high like the bees..  Please join us as we SOAR with His power!

BEE JOYFUL ALWAYS – I love you so,

Mary Ann Krauss
