Iquitos Mototaxis

She was in her second marriage. Her husband was an engineer and a Seventh Day Adventist, who had just recently told her that he no longer wanted to be married to her. He said he was looking for something better. They have twins together and they were seemingly happy for four years until she quit her job as an administrator of an important business in our city.

When she received the news that her husband no longer wanted to be with her, she felt as though her world was coming down on top of her. She loved this man but he simply despised her. She sought help from a number of psychologists, but none of them left her with any sense of peace—her condition only got worse and worse. 

It was in the midst of her desperation that, in the providence of the Lord, she was led to a sister in our church, who invited her to one of our meetings. There, we began to counsel her, teaching her the gospel. In our fourth meeting with her, her condition began to change in a miraculous way. One of the assignments we had given her was to study Philippians 2:1-11 and John 1:1-14; 3:16-17. She said she was beginning to see what real love is and when she was in her home seeing herself in light of the love of God she felt unworthy and hopeless because she didn’t deserve this kind of love. 

She came to the church crying. She was only able to say the words, “What do I need to do to have this love? I want to know Jesus Christ. I want to be a daughter of God.” It was in the context of this question and the conversation that followed that she began believing in Jesus Christ. 

From that point on, there has been a radical change in this sister. She now attends our church regularly and is under the personal discipleship of one of the sisters in the church. She can finally sleep at night again. She is caring for her children and striving to live for the glory of the Lord in every moment.
