Once we are inducted into God’s army, we have learned that our Commander is our All-in-All. We have received His care, His love, His gifts, and now His marching orders. We put to use the weapons of our spiritual warfare as He taught us, and move forward with the commands He gives each of us. Once He has trained us, He moves us where we can best work for His Kingdom. Where has He called you to carry out your orders? Listen for His Voice in your life and advance.

Making A Difference in the Global Battle
Partners International began in 1943 and pioneered the partnership concept among missions around the world. Now, with six affiliate offices facilitating ministry, Partners International covers the globe with the hope of Jesus, and practical help.
Visit Partners International: www.partnersintl.org
Mission Statement: Connecting the global Christian community to bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to the least reached, least resourced nations on earth.
Take a look at the videos in the link below and ask God if this might be where you could “plug in” to bring the gospel of Jesus to people in need.
Still at Partners International, here is another way to help:
Sponsor A Child: If there is a place to make a difference in this world – this is it! As the coordinator of this program at Partners International, I have a view that most people don’t see. Often a question asked is, “aren’t these programs scams just to get money?” I would have to say emphatically NO! While there are always those who will take advantage, most sponsorship programs truly do change the lives of children and their families. Take a look at the article in CHRISTIANITY TODAY (June 2013) about sponsorship. It is posted on the Sponsor A Child Facebook page below.
Sponsorship at Partners International works within a ministry partner’s mission as one of the projects they use to work in their countries. For some, it is the first generation to be educated and given the hope of eternity and a better life on earth. I hear stories from the field all the time about real children in real hard circumstances.
For only $35 a month (lower than most others), sponsors are most definitely making a difference in the lives of children and their families. If sponsoring a child tugs at your heart, children in some of the hard places of the world are waiting for you.

If I can be of service to you, please contact me at Partners International: email@example.com. I would love to talk to you.
Another Global Opportunity
Building global momentum to help complete the Great Commission
Perspectives helps believers from all walks of life see how they can get threaded into God’s story of redeeming people from every tribe, tongue, and nation to Himself. From Genesis to the prophets, Jesus Christ to the early church, and Constantine to today, you will see how God has been moving, how the global Church has responded, and what the greatest needs in world evangelization remain today. It isn’t just a class about missions, but a course on how every believer can be intimately woven into the story of God using His people to be a blessing to all the peoples of the earth.

For Writers in Making a Difference
Inside every writer is a story that must be told; lessons learned that must be shared; and encouragement that must be given. If that story isn’t told, then something is missing in our world.
Attending writers conferences is the best way to not only learn the craft and business of writing, but to make connections. Friendships are formed, and there is nothing like writing buddies to keep you encouraged to go the distance and finish those projects.
Join a writers group. I have found not only a critique group, but life long friendships. My writers group, called The Scribettes, started as a journaling group. We attended conferences together. We shared information. We critiqued each other’s work. We have shared each other’s lives and prayed together. We now have several published authors, in several venues including blogs, articles, books and more. Check this out: we started a blog together in October 2015 called “The Scribette Snippets” at http://scribettesnippets.com/
DO look for a writers group to join. It will make a difference in your writing life!
Need help in managing a website?
Gretchen Louise teaches writers about media, creates and manages websites and more.
When my website had to be moved to a different host, upgraded and maintained in ways that I could not do, I called Gretchen and she was gracious to work with me in my situation. I may be able to change content, but I am not techno savvy enough to keep up the ‘back end’ of the pages and I depend on Gretchen to keep my site running smoothly. She does a fabulous job. She responds quickly and my website is always working well.
Gretchen has also taught me and guided me through using social media, learning how to put newsletters together and send them as well as sprucing up my blog so it looks good. I’m grateful for all the tools she has given to me so that I may go further in using my writing gifts. I recommend Gretchen to anyone who wants to learn social media and needs an online presence to promote what they are doing with class.

Making A Difference in your life
We all need encouragement to face the battles of our days. It’s available. Our God has promised to never leave us nor forsake us and all we have to do is trust Him for all He has for us. His plan is bigger than we can guess.
