Five years ago right now, Natanya was born! What a blessing she has been in our lives! What a precious gift from God. We are so thankful for our beautiful daughter, and that God has given her five years of life. Please pray with us that the Holy Spirit will convince her of her need of a Savior.
I vividly remember that night in the hospital five years ago. I remember the uncertainty of what would happen with our little girl. I remember rushing to the hospital, being put to sleep about 30 minutes later, and waking up to a beautiful little girl. I remember finding out later how serious the situation really was, and that had we arrived much later, my husband could have walked out of the hospital alone. This reminds me of how fleeting life is. It is even a vapor, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. This evening at church, we had our fifth "connection point" class. As I studied Acts 3 with the teenage girls, I reminded them to see people as souls. With 21 million people here in Mexico, we pass thousands of people on a daily basis. Souls can get lost in the crowd. We sometimes ignore them, but must see each person as a life that is headed to heaven or hell. I am thankful that I am on my way to heaven, but I want to see people and help them with their spiritual need. Life is so short. We must tell others of their need of a Savior! What are you doing with your life?
The beginning of 2016 could not have been better. God is again and again showing His grace and protection. As we look forward to this year, we do have several prayer requests that we would ask you to pray for.
Thank you for your love and interest in missions. I will keep you posted on how God answers these requests.
