Proverbs 11:30 says, “The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.” I pray you are doing well when you receive this prayer letter. My family and I are doing well, and we greatly appreciate your prayers.
I thank God for divine appointments. Recently while out with my son Luis, we visited one of our faithful church regulars who had just returned from her daughter’s funeral. I spent some time trying to comfort her; then when I was about to leave, I asked to pray with her. She said “Yes” but wanted to go and get her neighbor. Her neighbor had told her that whenever I came by to please ask me if I would pray for her. Her neighbor came over, and I did pray for her. After praying with her, I asked her if she would like to be saved, and in a short moment, she was praying the sinner’s prayer and was sweetly saved.
Throughout the summer I have been encouraged that our attendance has been up. Souls have been saved and baptized. An 11-year-old boy by the name of John was saved and baptized and will be returning to Florida in September. Please pray that I can find him a good church to attend. John really loves the Lord.
Recently on a Wednesday night, I was teaching on sharing the Gospel and making sure people are saved. My son Jose came to me after the service and told me that he was not sure he was saved. I thank God my son Jose got the assurance of his salvation. My daughter Carolina also spoke to my wife about not being sure she was saved, and my daughter also got the assurance of her salvation. I was able to baptize both of them.
Please pray for the health of my wife. She is getting some tests and an MRI done. Please pray for them to come back negative.
