Just a quickie today… Ya’ll are probably wondering if that’s even possible for me with the long-winded posts I always put out.
I really would appreciate if you all could pray for my teacher, Gaby. I’ve had the same teacher the whole time that I’ve been down here, and we’ve become good friends as well as student/teacher. God has really been giving us amazing opportunities to talk together, and we have had several hours of conversation about beliefs/ Christianity/ what it means to really follow God with our whole heart. She is a Catholic, which is very common in Guatemala and is what most people call themselves whether they ever even go to church or not. But she has told me that seeing my faith in God has really made her think and she has seen God through Jan and me. It has challenged me so much, because I know she is really watching my life. That is scary and makes me feel very responsible, but at the same time I know that it’s not me will do anything anyway: it’s only God shining His light through me.
There’s a quote by Osward Chambers that is so good and describes what I want to be:
“The saint who is intimate with Jesus will never leave impressions of himself, but only of Jesus having His unhindered way in his life.”
I feel like Gaby is so close to accepting a real, personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and please pray that God would reveal truth to her heart and show her His love for her… I feel like God may have led me to Guatemala, among other reasons, but to introduce her to Jesus…
Thanks so much for praying!! This is a matter of heaven or hell, and it’s an issue of spiritual warfare in the realm unseen…
