Dear Friends of The Father’s Love Int’l Ministries,
A couple of years ago, the Lord spoke something to my heart that was very simple but profound. I was asking for His wisdom and guidance for this ministry and He said, “This isn’t a destination you are on with Me, it is a journey, so enjoy the journey. ENJOY THE JOURNEY!” As we abide in the Father, our destination is secure in Christ. Navigating the journey we call “life” is not an easy thing, and we know there are hardships and trials, yet again the Lord reminds us to “Enjoy the journey!”
This week, my husband Jeff and I are celebrating the birth of our first grandchild! Anthony Dean was born by cesarean section on October 21, 2018 and was 8lbs 10oz. Because of the unexpected complications of his birth, our daughter, her husband, and he are staying with us as momma heals. On top of this, the first week of October I had medical treatments performed on many of my joints. I am improving, but still recovering. Jeff travels for work, but he’s been home most of this month, so that is good because he’s really enjoying the new grandbaby. Our son stays with us when he is not driving long-haul from Detroit to Laredo and will be home today for the week. Obviously, there is a lot going on at the Bauman house right now, and yes, we are enjoying the journey!
While my family traverses these life changes, I continually look to the Father for direction for the ministry. It is His and I will only go when, and where He directs me. My prayer is that the two books He commissioned me to write over the past few years will bless those who read them. The encounters I share in Jewels from the River and Jewels from the Harvest are very much like parables. They reveal a lot of what the world and the Church (Ekklesia) is going through NOW! God explained to Habakkuk that he was to write the vision and make it clear, so that the one who reads it could run with the message. This was the directive the Lord gave me. If you have read either or both of the books, I would love to hear from you. If you are interested in receiving signed copies, they can be ordered at the website linked below. The books can also be found at Amazon and Barnes and Noble online, and electronic versions are available.
Until next time, I pray you remain in the Father’s love!
Rev. Judy A Bauman
