A new day...

This morning I checked to see how many ladies have pre-registered for Spa Night.

Drum roll, please...

176 ladies!

And again I say, "WoW!"

Tomorrow night, we will be handing out pamphlets to each lady in attendance, and atleast 176 women will receive this message:

Dear ladies,

Welcome to the second annual Women of Worth Spa Night! We are so glad you’re here.

At last year’s event, several women asked me, “Chelsea, why are you doing this?” The answer is simple: you’re worth it. As women of worth, the value we place on ourselves is nothing compared to the value placed on us by our Creator. I truly believe that each and every one of you is a woman of worth in God’s eyes.

I want you to know that tonight’s event is only made possible through the donations of Christians all over the country. The people and businesses who have so generously donated their time, money, and services for tonight have done so because they too believe that you are wonderfully made and that you are precious in God’s sight.

Tonight, we are here to celebrate you. We are here to embrace and preserve the wonderful gift of womanhood that has been bestowed upon us, and we hope that you thoroughly enjoy yourselves. Thank you for coming...you are totally worth it!

Embracing and Preserving Our Womanhood,

Chelsea

I cannot tell you how excited I am!

I don't know if I'll have time to write before tomorrow night, so I want to take the time now to thank you for your prayers and support and to ask you for your continued prayers.

In these last hours, please pray for the following:

1) Praise God for creating us in His image
2) Praise our Heavenly Father that we are able to find out worth in Him!
3) Praise God for taking care of our every need
4) Pray for safety in travel
5) Pray for the women in attendance
6) Pray that God will allow for opportunities for our volunteers to speak truth to these women
7) Pray for the women not in attendance. Pray that God will soften their hearts and that they, too, will realize that they are women of worth.
8) After yesterday's poster fiasco, we have legitmate concerns about the safety of the young women participating in tomorrow's events. Pray that the Lord will protect all the women involved and will keep us safe.
9) Continue to pray for the future of Women of Worth. Pray that the Lord will rise up women to lead this organization in the coming years.
10)Pray that the Lord will allow the Spa Night to run smoothly, and pray that we will never take our eyes off of Him. Pray that all glory and honor will be given to Him.

What an exciting month it has been for us! I am so glad to have been able to share this journey with you all. I cannot wait to tell you all about it!

Embracing and Preserving Our Womanhood,

Chelsea
