May 6, 2013
We really had an interesting week and Satan was fighting hard against us. In one day we had really good plans and had confirmed all our plans and it was crazy to see how Satan worked against us. We showed up to one of our first appointments and as we get there to begin teaching a Pastor from another church and a couple of the members of the other church all show up to visit this guys wife. It was a little awkward but luckily our investigator speaks English so he told me that it was a little weird so it would be better to go back a different day. We left that appointment to go to another appointment and we get there and the door was wide open to this guys house. As we come to find out the firemen (which are right in front of this guys house) had just barely left - he had a fire there in the roof of his house and so he was in the process of cleaning up all the mess so we helped a few minutes and he decided it was better for us to go back the next day. It was weird - me and my companion left laughing a little bit from all the things that had happened and not thinking anything else could go wrong. Well we thought wrong. We got to our last appointment of the day and it was weird - for the first time ALL the family was there. We get there, sit down and we are talking for like 5 minutes and the power went out so me and my companion had to leave to go to our house. It was ridiculous. Satan has really worked hard against us this week to stop us from doing good things. We ended the week in a fast and really the Lord is blessing us. I started my fast pleading that we could baptize a family this month and if the Lord could send a family to church the next day. As we showed up to the church we saw coming up the street a member and her husband who isn't a member. It really was an answer to our fasting that the Lord wants us to baptize this month. When they got to the church the sister told us that she wanted us to start visiting her husband so that he can get baptized and they can get married. We have really seen a lot of miracles this week and we know that we have a great week to come. The power of fasting and prayer is real. Pray for Melkis and the Ruiz family so that they can get baptized this month.
