We focused on prayer this month. We met each night for a week to pray. We prayed as a church in our home groups with our families and also with the sick and the lonely. We keep praying and asking the Lord to bless us this year, so that we could honor Him and testify about Him in a more efficient way.

I visited several churches this month to preach. I was glad to meet new people and to develop new relationships. I also made pastoral visits and did personal evangelism. I was glad to see God answering our prayers and doing great and wonderful things.

There is a man that I’ve been visiting him for several years. He is an educated man who used to work in Peles Museum. He always has a nice story to tell. He has met many important people and had many interesting experiences. But, in spite of this, he doesn’t have a wife and his only child doesn’t visit him too often. He hasn’t had a good relationship with his neighbors and doesn’t have many friends. I wondered many times why people don’t like him and I finally understood. He is a very critical person. He is proud, stingy, arrogant and most of all critical. I talked to him from the Scripture many times. He knows the Bible and believes it partially. We prayed together several times and he was glad to see God answering his prayers. But although he has come to church several times, he hasn’t made a decision for the Lord. He was very sick last year when he underwent three colon surgeries and endured an eye infection, which just wouldn’t heal. I visited him today and he was perfectly well. I listened to him as usual very carefully and I was surprised to see he didn’t speak badly about anyone. He spoke to me about nice things and I felt a warmth in his heart.

He told me there was a cat that had been coming into his house and he really loved it. This cat is the first living being that I have found in his courtyard and which enjoys his love. Could there be a connection between kindness and health? Psychotherapists say that 70% of our health issues are due to psycho-emotional disorders. Proverbs 3.7-8 says: “Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones.” This change that has taken place in his life encourages me to keep praying for him and tell him about God’s love shown through His Son.
