Dear brothers and sisters, as always, it is a great joy to be able to reflect on what God is doing in His work here, seeing what He has taught us as a church about His grace. I hope that this report encourages you to continue praying for us, since we truly are in God’s hands through your prayers. I thank you for taking time to read this report.
For a portion of this month, my wife traveled to a city on the coast in order to be with her parents, and so I was left alone with our children at home. As I devoted myself to taking care of everything that needs to be done in our home, I began to truly value all that my wife does everyday. While it was a blessing to be able to spend more time with my children, three boys, talking much about God and life, it was exhausting to try to fulfill all of my responsibilities. I believe the time with my children was blessed of the Lord, even though humanly speaking it was hard. Thanks to the Lord, I was able to learn a lot about the blessing that my wife is to me and the ministry.
On another note, I am thankful to God for permitting us to continue evangelizing and preaching the Gospel. As always, it is such a joy to share the Gospel and the church has been encouraged to be intentional in this responsibility. In the Sunday services we just finished 1 John, and are beginning the book of James. Each week we have several visitors, and over the past several weeks a lady that had visited us in the past began coming once again to our meetings. Months ago she had come to our services, but then had been pulled into an Adventist church. Please, pray for her, that we would be able to faithfully instruct her in the Gospel. Also, pray for the times of discipleship that we are having individually with many of the members of our church each week.
