I sent out a text message to the members of our church and asked them to send me the names of their family members who were not saved so that I could pray with them for their salvation. Here are a few of the people that have been saved since I sent out that text.
Fabiola was brought to our church by her neighbor and faithful church member Aracely. My wife started discipling both of them in our home, even though Fabiola was not saved. After a year of discipleship classes and praying for her salvation, Fabiola still had not received Christ as her Saviour. Finally, during the invitation one Sunday morning, Fabiola grabbed my wife’s arm and told her that she wanted to be saved. She then asked me to pray for her husband to get saved also. One Sunday night after church, I went to their house; and Christian, her husband, also received Christ as his Saviour.
Rosita asked me to pray for her married adult son Carlos to get saved. He had already prayed with an altar worker during a recent service, but she felt he did not understand. I went to talk to him, and he told me that he did not really understand when he prayed, because his mind was preoccupied in other things. I was able to explain it again to him, and he told me that he was not saved and that he wanted to get saved. We both knelt down in front of his couch while he prayed for the Lord to save him. His mom rejoiced to know that her son was saved.
Aracely, another faithful lady in our church, asked that I pray for her mom to get saved. I had witnessed to her several times without any success. One night before going out on visitation, Aracely called me and asked if I could visit her mom, who lives with her. She told me that her mom wanted to get saved. I went to her house and had the joy of leading her mom to the Lord. I am thankful that the Lord is still in the business of saving the lost. “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” (II Peter 3:9)
Please pray for a young couple in our church, Hector Pivaral and Gaby López, who will be getting married this June. Gaby grew up in our church, while Hector come to work with us a year and a half ago. Hector will be starting a church in Santa Rosa shortly after they are married. I am very pleased for both of them as they start this new journey in life together.
I am very excited to have Bro. Darrell Moore preach our missions conference this year. The dates are June 21-25. Please pray that our missions giving will increase and that we will be able to support more missionaries.
His for souls,
Daniel and Misty Wilder, Lydia, Charity, Emily, Hannah, and Serenity
