The rains have slowed down now that we are near the end of the rainy season. It was a very intense rainy season this year. Thankfully, the brothers from the church are able to start working in the fields again, which means that soon there will be more food for everyone. The economic situation in our country is very difficult, and in the jungle it’s especially bad. But our Lord Jesus Christ always provides for His children. God provided for His people in the wilderness, and He will certainly continue providing for us today in the jungle.
In our home we have been receiving a lot of visits from brothers and sisters in need of counseling and help. We’re also taking advantage of the opportunities we have to go to their homes and share the gospel with family members. On the days that we don’t have any church meetings, a group from the church is going out to the surrounding towns to evangelize and at least once a week we visit the sick.
This month we had a service in the town of La Libertad, where an aunt of mine invited all of her family members and we preached the gospel. Afterwards, she invited us all to stay and share a dinner with everyone who attended. Sadly, a niece of mine passed away this month. She was a believer and her mom invited us to come and do a service in her home. A lot of people came, both family and neighbors, and we worshiped the Lord and preached the Word of God. Afterwards, we stayed and shared a meal together and returned home at two in the morning.
Present that evening was a cousin of mine who is a doctor. He is very well-known and he’s asked me to come in June and he is going to get many people together to have a service. Our God continues to open doors for the preaching of the gospel in these idolatrous towns. He is kind toward us, and we see how he is using our ministry here in the nearby towns. We are being given a lot of opportunities to preach at birthday celebrations, weddings, anniversary celebrations, and funerals. The Lord has also opened up opportunities to counsel and share the gospel with government officials who come and ask for advice.
