Home Visit and Class Scheduling

This morning Gaspar and I went to visit a patient that saw Lisa in Lemoa last week.  She was diagnosed with breast cancer and is not doing well.  We traveled about 45 minutes to the other side of Quiche.  Agostina's family met us in the road and then we walked to their home.

This is their home in the distance.  We enjoyed the walk.  It was cool and very refreshing!

We spent about an hour with the family.  Agostina was in bed and had difficulty breathing.

Gaspar asked me to share some thoughts with her and that he would translate for me.  I talked about difficulties that we have in this world but if we are followers of Christ or Christians that we have hope that others do not have.  God is faithful and that is a promise we have.

Gaspar talked about us being sure of our salvation. It is not something that we need to doubt.  He asked Miguel, her husband, "Are you sure of your salvation?"  Miguel responded, "Yes."

It is comforting to know that we do not have to wonder day-to-day about it. It is a question that everyone should be comfortable responding to.

When we finished, I visited a friend from the congregation in Quiche.  I talked with her about doing an IVAA/ Pap class, so I now have a meeting with the ladies there on February 24th in the afternoon.

Later, I went to Chichi for an early dinner.  I often see this gentleman reading his Bible.  His vision is so poor that he lays his cheek on the pages to read it. I thought of the following verse. 

Jeremiah 15:16
When your words came, I ate them; they were my joy and my heart's delight, for I bear your name, LORD God Almighty.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if we all had this same desire to know God's Word?
