Not Just a Stack of Papers

Look at this picture...
 
What do you see?

It looks like a stack of papers in file folders. 
Oh, but it is so much more than that. 

Those papers represent 210 women that are coming to Bloom 2011: Beauty For Ashes. It is the annual women's retreat here in Panama hosted by Crossroads Bible Church. It represents 210 lives that are going to join together this weekend. These are people who come from all backgrounds - both followers of Christ and those who do not know Him. They represent languages, cultures, religions, countries, hurts, joys, woundedness, healing, hope, and despair. 

Would you pray for these women that are going to assemble this weekend in Gamboa? Would you pray for a moving of the Holy Spirit through Nancy Holcomb as she shares her story? Would you pray for lives to be changed, chains to be broken,  salvation to be seized, freedom to be found? 

This is more than a stack of papers; it is a stack of possibilities for the Kingdom.
