"Faith does not operate in the realm of the possible. There is no glory for God in that which is humanly possible. Faith begins where man's power ends." - George Muller
Dear Explicit Movement friends and family,
May God bless you as 2023 comes to a close, and we anticipate the 2024 season!
Like many nonprofits, we typically launch a fundraising campaign during this time of the year. However, we have a different campaign in mind as we bring 2023 to an end.
Will you donate a few minutes of your time today or over several days, weeks, and months to pray for us and the many things God has placed under our stewardship? If you hear something from the Lord, would you share it with us?
In 2022, God made it clear to me that, instead of actively fundraising, He wants us to trust Him more for continued provision. This challenging commitment has increased my faith and my team's faith tremendously. We have seen God's amazing faithfulness in providing this year and know that He will continue to watch over the work He started!
Did you know that one of my greatest inspirations is George Muller? George was a 19th-century evangelist and Director of several orphanages in England. He cared for over 10,000 children in his lifetime and never once fundraised or solicited donations. He contended in prayer, and God provided, even at the last minute. His story is a powerful example of faith and perseverance.
Will you agree and contend in prayer with us into 2024 and beyond? Why not take a screenshot of our prayer list below? Thank you for believing in God with us.
Please pray for:
Financial provisions to help Brave & Beautiful and Brave & Bold reach all of Hawaii, our nation, and beyond to empower teens in life and leadership and to protect lives from sex trafficking victimization. *We are praying for great provisions to allow us to print large orders, therefore lowering the cost significantly to make the pricing more accessible to a larger audience.
God's divine inspiration as we work on completing Brave & Bold for teen boys in 2024.
The girls who are in Brave & Beautiful pilot groups here in Hawaii and the US, including on Native American reservations, to encounter the transforming love and power of Jesus.
Our team to hear the Holy Spirit's guidance as we envision next year. We continue to equip the Body of Christ with God's design for healthy sexuality and bring healing from shame and sexual brokenness.
Divine connections and doors of favor and for helpers to come alongside us as we expand our reach to serve.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. If you have any personal prayer requests, please feel free to respond and our team will pray with you also. Don't forget, if you hear something from the Lord for us, please do share!
Happy New Year!
Michele and Team
