The past 3 weeks have been very difficult ones, however, they have also been filled with God's grace as it continually flows through Christ to all who live by the Spirit (John 1:16,17; Romans 8:9,10,11). Without going into detail, I will say that I am very thankful to God for all the saints who are praying for my family and for the church I attend. I have also been learning Spanish much better than before, and can understand it pretty comfortably when hearing it spoken. I can even converse in Spanglish with Latin Americans in Philadelphia when witnessing on the streets. I have met many people, one man from Ivory Coast spoke French, and we were able to find him a Bible to read in his language. Another time, I talked to a young man from the "Hebrew Israelites" and just exhorted him with love to read Romans and stop following those who distort the truth. He reasoned with me for a few minutes out of the Bible, then walked away mad. May the Lord grant him and those with him a humble heart of repentance and genuine faith in Christ.
Thank you and may the Lord bless all who lay their hands to the plow with joy, and don't look back!
