Eri managed to find a link to Betty's encampment vision that was posted on the old Embraced By the Light website. Betty has asked me to share this link with you. Here it is: https://web.archive.org/web/20090406235247/http://www.onjinjinkta.com/native/encampment/vision1intro.htm Take a good read through it! The link takes you to seven pages describing her vision. I am sure I once (or twice or so) read through it, but reading it again was a real eye opener! So much more detail than I recalled. Blessings to you all, Erin

My daughter Harmony seems to have fallen I’ll tonight. Cold and achy. She actually came home from a play date with a friend feeling sick— cold and achy. She wore her mask but eventually her friend convinced her to take it off. So I’m guessing her friend and her friend’s family need prayers too as they may be getting sick. Thank you all!!!!!

Friends, I have challenged my workplace ethics. I have challenged their definition of "full time" workload as I am most likely working close to double time hours and being told I am falling short of expectations. Due to falling short of expectations, they have created a Performance Improvement Plan which actually adds more obligations and deadlines to my workload. It will be easy for them to say I have not met expectations and must be terminated. So I wrote to my boss, to the dean of the school, and to the ethics department challenging their definition of a full time workload, and asking them when the amount of work I am given, and the "full time" term put to it, is unethical. I have informed my colleagues that I will not be able to meet the workload and that I am challenging the expectations. I imagine there may be, as Betty mentioned in her Embracing Life session on Sunday, spiritual warfare. Asking for prayers of guidance for me, for my colleagues, for all whom have gotten involved, for universities across and outside the nation (as I have seen this at other universities). Thank you! Sending love and prayers to WAVES. I pray I follow God's will. Amen

I’m really struggling right now. I received a poor review at work. They said they need to see improvement or they need to let me go. I already stay up late working every night and work every weekend, and told them I cannot give more. My health is compromised. But I had a dream about getting this job a few years back, and moved my family across the country to take this job a year and a half ago. Not sure how to take care of my health and improve my work and protect my family right now. Praying for God’s guidance. Thank you, WAVES!

It's been rough at home lately. My husband and I are always arguing. Any more I say I don't want to argue, I make efforts to agree, I just stop talking, but somehow the argument continues for an hour and ends with him threatening to move out and looking online for apartments. Now my daughter has mentioned a few times at school that we argue and it scares her. They have reached out to see if me and my daughter are safe, and I assured them we are and that we tell her we love her and we love each other. Today my husband said he wants the school to hear his side. He always thinks he's the victim. He has been telling me on a daily basis that it's too much and he needs to leave, and yesterday told my parents he needs to leave. He still came home yesterday, but this morning said he needs to schedule a meeting with my daughter Harmony's teacher to hear his side of the story. I really am scared at this point. I'm mostly worried they will feel social services needs to get involved, and will try to remove her from us. Despite arguing daily and him threatening to leave daily, he comes home every day and argues again. And he keeps saying people need to know what's really going on. He thinks he's the target. So he's reaching out to my family and now wants to reach out to the school. I'm so afraid of losing my daughter. Today I told him if he needs to leave he can. I also keep encouraging him to get counseling. But whenever I ask him to do these things, he just tries hard to not do it. So he keeps coming home, and we keep arguing. My daughter asked me today if she can live with grandparents until we are done arguing. I feel like I'm losing my family. I keep praying that warrior angels protect my daughter, that God help us to work through issues, that He bless our home, that he help out my husband, that he guide me. And every day it feels like it's getting a bit worse. And I always justified his feeling targeted and threatening to leave when he was dealing with other struggles in his life. But now he finally has steady employment (this is the first time since we've been together that he has had steady employment), he actually likes his job, he likes the state we live in, and he's ready to settle down. So I don't know why he's still triggered daily and threatening to leave. My daughter is scared and is asking him to leave. But if he's asked, he refuses despite continuing to tell us daily he is going to leave. Ultimately, I keep fighting to keep my family together. My goal is not to divide us. But I'm not sure how to heal this. And my daughter is scared. I really need strong prayers. Thank you all!!!!

Dear friends, asking prayers again for my daughter, Harmony. I am just being a worried mother. With COVID out, with her too young to get a COVID shot (and with her health issues, it may be ill advised), and with Delta variant targeting kids more than previous variants, I just worry about her. I know Betty said those who are dying are generally getting COVID, developing pneumonia, and that is what is getting them. It targets the lungs. She was born 15 weeks premature, with premature lungs. they said she may get pneumonia a lot. I have had her hospitalized for bronchiolitis before, and while she was in the hospital she developed pneumonia, and the doctors were not sure she would make it. Thank God she pulled through. Just praying to God she remain safe from COVID. I have been trying to earn the right to teach remotely from home this year, but so far am losing the fight. I teach college, and feel I probably work with the population who feel newly independent and invincible, but I see their efforts and hear their concerns. If I lose this fight I know I will be constantly praying for added protection. Maybe God is pushing me to have faith no matter my work outcome, and to trust in Him. So I'm working on that, and praying hard for her protection (and trying to put in added protection through herbs, vitamins, etc. as Betty keeps re-emphasizing). Just asking for prayers of protection. On a side note, an update on my husband's situation: He ended up getting a job offer locally! Thank God! He starts in a week. He is home with us, and making plans to settle down as a family in Cleveland as long as possible. Thank the Heavenly Father for keeping us together! We were ready to take on the challenge of being apart, but are so happy and grateful to stay united. My daughter is extra excited about this. Thank you for prayers.

Friends, As you know, Betty has shared her vision of Encampments. I have had my own visions of living in a community in nature, and feeling safe and protected in that area God had set aside for the community, even if there was turmoil in other areas of the world. Having these visions, I kept thinking, those encampments need to be built! I've had a vision of a community, and it seems in line with the encampment! After being patient, waiting to see them developed, I eventually decided if I want to see it built, I should build one myself. I shared this idea with Betty, she told me to start talking about it, and she would pray. It moved me to work on a nonprofit management degree. While taking classes, I talked about my idea of a spiritual camp, and eventually a classmate told me her church district was building such a camp, and recruited me as a volunteer executive director of the camp. For nine years I worked on creating my vision through that camp, but constantly felt limited by their beliefs. For a while they grew on the idea of not limiting the camp to a specific religion, but declaring it a spiritual camp and welcoming all. At one point we found a mound on the land, and had it verified that it was a Native American mound, most likely a burial mound. We had a minister who was also part Native American and who worked with rural nonprofit organizations as a consultant volunteer to help us in our development. However, over time the group declared it as a Christian camp, said they would welcome in other faiths but would not give permission to allow other faiths to discuss their faith. They discussed limiting certain groups from being invited to camp, such as Wicca groups (groups which declair themselves witches, wizards). They also discussed how the other faiths do not worship the same God, and pointed out the faults in the other faiths. I finally decided to step away. I kept thinking, I would love to build this camp still, but need to think about whose hearts may also feel open to it. I've always felt this would be most successful if the camp board had WAVES members on it. People wanting to challenge their faith and grow, and who know Betty's message and support it. So now I'm taking steps forward. I do not have a camp location. I don't even have a well developed idea yet. But lately I've been feeling moved once again to work on developing a camp. But this time I would like to do so with any WAVES who may be interested in being involved. Ultimately, I think the purpose is to gather WAVES to build a New Tribe. And I think through making this tribe a camp, it will allow others to come, learn, and then return home and apply those ideas. I remember Betty, in her visions, discussed seeing the world in chaos. And when she asked if it had to be that way, she was shown that it could be peaceful, and we could move into tribal communities. I have over the years felt this truth: tribal communities are the direction we will move in as the time for it comes. I think the WAVES group can support Native American tribes, and together set a great example of a New Tribe. If you are interested in getting involved, please feel free to reach out. If you are not interested in getting involved, but really have someone in mind who was not included in this email that you think might like to hear about this idea, please let me know. If you are not interested in getting involved, and have no others in mind, but would love to join in on monthly Zoom meetings just to see WAVES and have some fellowship time, feel free to join us! My first step is to form a board. In this case my thought is to form possibly an international board, and we will meet via Zoom. After a board is formed, I/we will work on the 501.c.3 nonprofit paperwork to get approved by the government to be a nonprofit organization. After that God knows. Any way, thank you for your love, thoughts, prayers, feedback, and thank you for being you. I love you all. I am so proud to know you all. You all bless all of creation. Thank you. My love, Erin (Fly) Oselu Daughter of Jim Fly P.S. I have shared this idea with Betty and she gave me permission to share my thoughts and message here. Thank you, Betty.

WAVES, my daughter is in the hospital. She’s had a tummy ache and x-rays revealed what looks like a small metallic ring in her small intestine. They think she swallowed something. They want to keep her in the hospital, on an IV, and off foods until she passes it. If she doesn’t pass it they want to surgically remove it. Shes unhappy being here and being hungry. Asking for prayers please. Thank you WAVES!

Asking for prayers please. My husband got a job offer in Valencia, CA. The salary they are offering, with cost of living, probably ends up matching or being less than my salary here. We really need prayers. Back in March I heard God whisper it’s time to follow my husband. I told my husband as much and he started applying and interviewing for jobs across the country. All doors remained closed. Now he got a job offer and has accepted the offer. He is telling me he’s leaving. We did not discuss the job and create a plan to move forward before he accepted the offer. Instead he did it without my knowing. His plan right now is to leave in a couple weeks. If it looks like the best place to move the family we will follow. Asking for lots and lots of prayers.

My husband did not get the job in Utah. He is still unemployed. This also means I will stay at my job as a professor. I thank God for His perfect plan and trust that He will give me what I can handle. Moving forward in faith. This next year will be tough as my workload doubles, teaching twice as many classes, some of which I have not taught before, which may mean many hours of preparation and little sleep. This is what triggers my epilepsy. So asking for prayers. Asking prayers for my husband as well. For his employment as God wills, for his faith and patience in staying here and finding a job. Asking prayers for my daughter as well. She will be repeating kindergarten this year. I had kind of hoped that my husband would get a job, we would move, and her second year of kindergarten would be at a different school. Her school is great. But as she stays in kindergarten and her friends all move to first grade I pray for her self-esteem and self-image. She will still see them all at school. I’m sure they’ll ask why she is still in kindergarten. Especially at that age when they don’t understand. So asking for prayers. Thank you all and God bless you.

I think I may be a bit of a broken record. So I will continue to pray and reflect on these issues as well. My husband has had some job interviews and some rejections. Even during summer break when I have lot of time to rest my epilepsy is still acting up. So continuing to ask for prayers for him to find a job and for me to be able to rest and heal. Not all doors have closed yet. We are still waiting some answers from some interviews. My dream is he find a job so he finally stop questioning himsekf. And I hope to have time to start to create a camp. I would love to do so. Ideally I would love for WAVES to be able to gather at the camp. So I will keep praying and holding faith! Thank you for your support!!!!! ❤️

My husband Alex has been complaining of back pain for six years now. This past year he has consistently been complaining of dizziness that he thinks may be related to possibly being hit in the back of the head (I think he thinks he fell on the back of his head once when lying down or something). He also has been complaining of pain at his waist. He keeps saying, “It’s not my spine or my muscles. It’s something inside. Like a blood clot, or broken bone, or air bubble or something.” Quite honestly I’ve been dismissing it as back pain from physical labor and from sitting at a desk bent over books studying. But yesterday he showed me he can move the pain in his waist. He put his hands to the center of his waist where the pain was and pushed to the side of his waist. He said “the pain is on the side of my waist now.” That concerned me. I think it may be more than just the typical back issue? He Thinks he has some sort of lump inside, and that lump is putting pressure on other areas, and that is causing the pain. Prayers please. I just don’t know right now what the lump is. Maybe a tumor? Or muscle? Or kidney stone? And I don’t know what type of lump is moveable. And I’m starting to wonder if his dizziness may be related. Hopefully all of it is treatable. Without extensive medical bills as I am still the only one currently employed. Thank you for prayers and thoughts. Sending you all blessings. My love.

As many of you may know and be experiencing right now, the government says the COVID crisis has ended and is stopping unemployment checks. My husband is still unemployed. My paycheck doesn’t quite cover us. Asking for prayers. And praying for all sharing these feelings right now. On top of that today we received my daughter’s cardiology bill. Just for her regular appointment. With insurance the bill is still $600. And in a month she is scheduled for a CT scan for her heart. Heart health care is expensive. Asking for prayers both for our finances and for my precious daughter’s heart. Thank you WAVES. Sending my love and blessings.

I feel I ask for lots of prayers for my marriage. Thank you for praying! We have lasted 7 years so far, and I want to keep fighting to stay together and continue to move forward. My husband has seemed angry lately and has been blaming me a lot. I think it started when I spoke with my daughter's school teachers and together (me and her teachers) decided she will repeat kindergarten. My husband and I are both in favor of her repeating a grade, but in Kenya when he was a kid children were assessed by their physical growth at second grade, and if they had not grown enough physically they repeated second grade, which he had to do. So he keeps fighting for her to repeat second or first grade. He states none of the basics are taught in kindergarten, which was true when he and I were kids, but now all the kids in kindergarten are reading, writing, and doing math! Wow! But her teachers say the protocol is to repeat kindergarten, and give good reason. Regardless, he has been angry a lot lately. Any way, he denies he is upset about the decision to repeat her in kindergarten. He says it's all the little stuff that's getting to him, and all our arguments lately have been about really little stuff. So I'm asking for prayers. I'm trying more and more to stop arguing, but he starts just talking to himself about it all if I won't talk back. Our daughter tried to get him to stop this morning, and he directed the lecture toward her. We really need prayers right now. I know Betty says right now the devil is trying his hardest to break up families. I REALLY feel it. I'm determined not to let it happen. I need strong prayers right now. The other day I heard God whisper that the next two years will be tough. I believe it. I want to keep up the fight to keep my family together. Prayers for peace for my husband, for unity for us as a family, for healing, for love. We can really use prayers right now. Thank you all! I'm praying for all your families right now too!!!! I believe Betty when she says families are being attacked. Praying for you all!!!

WAVE Eri has asked for prayers for her husband John. He has been experiencing severe pain in various areas of his body which seem unrelated. She has been really concerned. To add to this, this morning he fell which has extremely heightened his pain! Asking we surround him in prayers! God, may you comfort John. Ease his pain. Help him in healing from this recent fall. Give him guidance in understanding the source of the pain. We know you give us challenges to help us grow. As you will, comfort and heal him at this time. Bless their whole family. And help Eri with her sleep as she struggles with this. And help their young daughter who struggles with allergies to many things which challenges her eating. Praying for them all!! Thank you, God!!!! Thank you all, WAVES!!! Sending love!
