Finding My Place

Happy Thanksgiving and a Lovely Advent to you!

I am settling in and finding my place in the Central Coast.  As for my part supporting the base, I am serving on four base ministries:

  • Hospitality
  • Fund Raising and Advertising
  • Worship, Intercession, and Spiritual Warfare
  • Outreach 
Each community house has Inreach each week, which is like Outreach, except we invite people INto our homes.  Our Inreach is on Wednesday nights and you can read more about it in my previous post.
So far I am serving on one personal ministry, and that would be Discipleship Training School (DTS).  The students arrive on January 10, so we are busy with preparations for them.  We will be here in the Central Coast for January, February, and March…then we will go overseas.  We as leaders will pray about where we are going, then we will give the students an opportunity to pray as a team.  It is a very exciting process, and I am anxious to see what God has in store.  If you pray and get a sense of anything, let me know!  This is one of my favorite things to see…how God speaks to many people in many ways.
My specific jobs in the DTS will be:
  • Lead a small group
  • Lead one-on-one discipleship times with each person in my small group
  • Student Hospitality
  • Assist with Speaker Hospitality
  • Assist with weekly Debrief time
  • KITCHEN!!!
I’m so excited about serving the DTS Kitchen, and I need your help.   Now, I considered a few loaves and fish, but given the month I have to prepare, I thought a few more recipes might help. So what are your favorite recipes to feed a crowd on a budget?

We have 15-20 people to feed, mostly girls.
I am trying to procure a slow cooker or two and maybe a pressure cooker.
We will need a variety of quick 30 minute meals, slow cooker meals (hopefully), casseroles, simple hot lunches and dinners.



P.S. I can now add 10 people on my blog email list.  If you would like to have the posts emailed to you, please let me know.  ❤

    Butternut-red lentil soupCut & peel butternut squash into 1/2" chunks (I find it easiest to slice into 1/2" slices, then peel, then cube). Put in pot with a bunch of red lentils (maybe a pint of r.l. per average squash?) and cover with water. Slowly bring to a boil while stirring to prevent lentils from sticking, then simmer until everything dissolves, about 20 minutes. No other seasoning is needed, and very nutritious and delicious. But a snip of fresh herbs on top is nice, and some good hearty bread will balance the protein in the lentils.Merry Christmas and God bless you, Beth!
