Hello, Brothers and sisters and Heartdwellers family. I am so excited to share this vision and our first Heartdwellers event with you.
This vision was given to me more than three years ago in prayer. We had organized a pro-life event outside at a park. There were many attendees and activities going on. The main attraction was the Healing Room which was a prayer tent. I saw women entering the tent who had had abortions, lost their child, or had a miscarriage. Then they were led by our prayer team into using their sanctified imagination to enter into the memory of their pain and actually meet with Jesus and see their child. I saw many women breaking down, crying and receiving so much freedom from the guilt and shame they carried. Then they were taken to the second part of the healing room where there was a prayer team ready, consisting of one adult and one child in each row.
I saw all my siblings and my nieces and nephews there as well. When the women would come up to receive prayer the child would have their hands open to receive them first and say, “You are forgiven and hug them”. I saw many women breaking down, in tears on this alone as they were hugged by the children and the adult who would pray over the women. It was such an amazing vision that I tucked away in my heart.
I decided recently to make a Rhema card out of it and put it in deck of cards knowing that when I pulled the card out it would be the proper time for me to do this event. I pulled it the card at the end of December when I thought I was going to Ghana. I was so flabbergasted because I thought, Lord I am leaving and how is this to happen? I assumed in the vision that I had years ago, I was in Texas because all my family and nieces and nephews were there as well.
We discerned and the Lord made it clear that he wants us to do this event in Taos. I was even more blown away wondering how this is going to happen. However, when the Lord gives a vision and says to move forward with it, he brings all the pieces together—and he has. And I have my family on board to be a part of this. Blessed Mother gave us the name of the event which is called “Life from Light”, from
James 1:17 “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.“
It is a free family-friendly and fun event to celebrate the gift of life that begins in the womb, and we desire for it to become an annual celebration. This event is an opportunity to bring mothers and parents together from all walks of life and lavish God’s love on them. We want to touch mothers and fathers in Taos and the surrounding areas who carry the pain and guilt of aborting a child, losing a child, or having a miscarriage, experience God’s freedom through the Healing Room.
We will provide free food and have a cotton candy and popcorn maker. Bounce house for the children. There will be powerful speakers who will share their stories. Activities consisting of music, poetry/spoken word performers, we’re looking into getting a children’s choir to preform, intercession, face painting, and a balloon release where we will write a name on the balloon in remembrance of a lost child or aborted baby to let them know they are not nameless or faceless as we release the balloons to heaven. This event will help bring the reality of how precious life is and how children truly are a gift from the Lord to give expecting mothers much hope for the future. We will also provide goodie bags for every attendee and free t-shirts.
The Goal and objective of this event is to bring healing to women and men who carry guilt, shame, fear, and pain from the act of abortion. To bring awareness of the sanctity and value of life. For all women to see the honor and value in being a mother. To have all attendees encounter the tangible presence of God’s love.
Why are we sharing it with you Heartdwellers? Because we are inviting each of you out to join us for this event. Many have desired to visit the refuge or even meet Mother Clare and the family. There will be no trips to the mountain this time. However, we would love to have all of you save the date and make this a family trip to come out and join us in this event. Also we need you! We are so in need of helping hands, volunteers to be a part of the prayer team with your children and we know this family is gifted with talents. Do you write poetry or even have your own story to share? And you can relate to these mothers? Then become one of the speakers at the event. Do you have some products or resources that would be really valuable for those who attend? Then become a vendor and we can provide you a free vendor table for this event.
We are going to try to work out a deal with one of the local hotels so all Heartdwellers guests can stay in the same place. So once we have the details we will let you know, and we will be posting another message once the event gets closer. If you think you just can’t make but would like to help with the event you can donate!
We have to put 300 goodie bags together for the event and provide bags of loves for expecting Mothers. You can donate gently used children clothes, and new infant items. We also have a surprise raffle at the event where we want to provide paintings done by Heartdwellers to give to the attendees, The theme of the painting should bring them joy about being a parent or bring healing to their hearts so be creative, all Heartdwellers artists. If it’s not too much to ask we will take sketch, paintings canvas or just paper, it doesn’t have to be framed. Or you can send in your artwork digitally by email and we will print it out, just make sure the pixels are high resolution. And of course you can always donate to help us cover the cost.
