Relationships deepen as time goes on. Marieli’s mother has been opening up a bit more each day. She’s recently taken to sharing her morning coffee with me – what a sweet gesture. One day before school, a Christian radio station was playing throughout her little green house. I took the opportunity to ask if she was a believer – she gave me the “no, not yet” response that is typical of this culture, but that she enjoys listening to what the preachers have to say. She asks about my babies almost every morning. She loves her little Marieli fiercely – you can see it in her eyes.
Pray for this lady. Another soul not yet aware of her great need for a Savior.
Pray for me. I want to take advantage of every opportunity I have with her. I want to be wise yet bold – I want to show patience and love yet speak the truth. More than anything, I want her to make the greatest decision she could possibly make this side of heaven – to befriend Jesus and live her life for Him.
