Malta Ministries ~
Encouraging “Women in Waiting”
to Love Jesus Passionately,
Walk with Him Intimately,
and Trust Him Completely.
“Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart.” Psalm 27:14
Jennifer Walker ~ Cleveland, MS
As found in Acts 27&28, Malta is an island of “rest” after the storm – a place of waiting on God and trusting in God to answer our prayers and to bring about the desires He has placed upon our hearts. In this sense, every believer who has ever “waited on God” has spent time on “Malta”.
This ministry exists to encourage those in “Malta” to love Jesus passionately, walk with Him intimately, and trust Him completely so that He can accomplish His good and glory in and through their lives. Whether I’m speaking on a frequently requested topic, specific assigned theme, or the truth God is presently teaching me, I always seek a fresh Word from God for each event.
At the age of 13, God called me to be a minister’s wife, mother, and encourager of women. Even though I didn’t understand all that call would encompass, Jesus used my Godly parents to teach me to pray for my future family and to walk with the Lord on a more intimate level. In the midst of fulfilling each of these calls, God allowed me to experience some difficult and painful periods of waiting on and with Him. God’s faithfulness during these periods of waiting has been the springboard of His ministry in and through my life. As we all do, I continue to find myself in Malta (God’s waiting room) in one area or another. But as I cling to Him, The Lord is helping me know and love Jesus more passionately, walk with Him more intimately, and trust in Him completely. It is my life-long desire and humble privilege to encourage others “in waiting” to learn to know, love, walk with, trust, and obey Jesus. He will never forsake us!
