I love this ministry so much. God originally brought MIP (or MIT as it was) across my path nearly 20 years ago, but for various reasons we did not go forward at that time. But when He brought it back some four years ago, I received an invitation from a local coordinator inviting me to a prayer breakfast, and in all honesty, my first reaction was; "I haven't got time for that!"
Also, when I joined a group, I was also concerned that I would not have time to pray EVERY week; I wondered if it might be a 'deal breaker'! However, not only has the weekly hour become possible, but it has become absolutely vital to me, and I now run my own group of women that the Lord has hand-picked and brought to us. I love how the Lord gives me the attribute each week, and how blessed we are when we find it is always so appropriate. I love encouraging and supporting the other mums, and we rejoice so much in answered prayer and shared testimonies together, as well as carrying one another's burdens. I have learned that it is so much more than my own little corner and this has been especially supported by MIP Switzerland. Meeting Kathrin, Jane and Cathy in England, as well as other mums from across the country and the world, has shown me what a huge vision this is, and how large God's heart is to encompass the burdens of mothers and children throughout the whole world. The beautiful, loving, self-sacrificing hearts of these mums, and their great love for Jesus have blessed me so much. All of this has given me so much joy and I now embrace it fully! I can't wait to see what the Lord is going to do next! Julie, UK
