Seven Came and heard

What a busy yet exciting past few days! Daniel and the boys got home on Saturday afternoon from camp where they had a great time together. Lourdes, a lady in our church who we saw saved and baptized a couple of years ago, brought her daughter Katia to camp. Saturday evening, Katia put her faith and trust in Jesus as her Savior!
Today, we loaded up the van once more to go out to Jesus Maria. This time, they were ready and waiting for us to arrive...4 men and 3 ladies came and listened to Daniel share the gospel again. Afterwards, the men again gathered around Daniel for about an hour asking questions. One of the men got pretty upset and began yelling curses and hitting Daniel with a hymn book. Daniel continued to patiently share verses from God's Word and the children and I and Brother Macario silently prayed. It was getting late and Daniel said we had to get going, but if they wanted, he would come back next week. And they all said yes...they wanted us to return. While we were driving home, we saw the roads that lead in to the other villages on that side of the desert. We were talking about going to another one on a different day of the week and wondering if we'd have an open door there as well.
Rebekah asked me, "Mommy, was that man mocking Daddy?" I told her, "No Rebekah, he's mocking Jesus. But Jesus still loves him so very much and we will just keep praying for him." His name is Antonio. Will you all please pray for him too? He has a wife and a 6 year old boy and everyone told us that he spends all their money on alcohol. Oh, how he needs the Savior!
On our way back home, suddenly Daniel began having a hard time keeping the van on the road. We pulled off and.....a flat very flat tire! We did have a spare, but no jack. So again, we all waited in the desert for someone to come along who could help. Daniel said, "The devil sure wants to discourage us". Finally, a pickup came in sight and when they saw us, they pulled off as well. The driver's name was Guadalupe and he was happy to help us. As we talked, we found out that Guadalupe was born and raised in one of the other villages we had just been talking about. Daniel asked him about the possibility of preaching there, and he said to please come!
On the way home, Daniel said, "The first time we broke down and coudln't get out to Jesus Maria to preah...that was the Devil. This time, it was the Lord....He wanted us to meet Guadalupe and I believe we have an open door to go in and preach there as well."

2 Peter 3:9
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

The little boy is Anotnio's son Juan Israel. He and Isaiah had so much fun together playing with the animals. They have turkeys, chickens, cows, and goats there on the ranch.

  1. How neat to see the Lord at work like that! Praying for your family and for those that you touch while serving the Lord in Mexico!

  2. Sounds to me like God gave you a wonderful time of R and R back in the States so you could be ready to tackle all of the new work He has planned for you to do now! You must be so excited to see these new doors opening for you! And I love seeing pics of the way He is also using your young children to make people more receptive to hear the truth you are bringing to them. Will continue to pray for your work in these new villages. Thanks for the update!

  3. Praying and praising! God bless the wonderful things your family is doing.

  4. What a wonderful story!! I love to see the way God directs our day to day lives!

  5. What a blessing! Praise the Lord!

  6. Sounds like a very challenging but worthwhile time. Praying for your family, Antonio, and all of the new people you will reach!

  7. Jaynee~ Wow~ I love reading the kids your updates and showing them all the great photos. Your breakdowns to the "village" have been a good reminder to us to see God in all the places we go.

  8. I have been following your story since another blog I read asked for prayer for your husband this spring. I am just another sister in Christ who prays for the people in these villages who need Jesus. Such an opportunity to teach my own 2 daughters about missions, the world, and another family serving. Thanks for sharing.
