On Sunday, after church, our friends, Trina and Ede who were visiting from the United States, and Maurice and Anna and their children from church and also Travis and his girls from the Finca went to pray for a nearby family to the Finca. The little girl in the picture with Ritch is Crystal. She is 6 years old and was injured at birth, so that she has to use a walker to get around. She also does not speak very well, but her spirit is amazing. We were able to get her up and take several steps without her walker! Praise Jesus. Her face lit up when she was able to do that. We also prayed for the Grandma who has diabetes and is losing sight in one eye and finding it very difficult to walk.
Even though we did not see a 100% healing, it is not about the healing, it is about obeying God and praying. When we are obedient, He will come through. We will continue to visit this family and pray. People need to see you care. Just love the one in front of you.
Prayer is so powerful. It should be our first weapon, but sadly, it is usually our last. We try everything else, then we go to God in prayer. We say, “Well now all I can do is pray”. No, start by praying. Ask God what He wants to do in this situation and then “Do it”. Praise is also very important. God inhabits our praise. So, give thanks. Fill your mouth with praise at all times, in all things.
This is Holy Week. Spend time reflecting on all the good God has given you. And remember the same resurrection power that raised Jesus from the grave dwells in you.
May you be blessed this week and fall deeper in love with God each day.
