Faith!


 Rom 4:18  Who without reason for hope, in faith went on hoping, so that he became the father of a number of nations, as it had been said, So will your seed be.

19 And not being feeble in faith though his body seemed to him little better than dead (he being about a hundred years old) and Sarah was no longer able to have children:

20  Still, he did not give up faith in the undertaking of God, but was made strong by faith, giving glory to God,

21  And being certain that God was able to keep his word.

This is Dennis. He is twelve. Dennis was born with hydrocephalus. This is a medical condition in which there is an abnormal buildup of cerebrospinal fluid in the brain.

Dennis is incapacitated, his head the size of a watermelon.

Most of the time he is not conscious, but still senses the pain.  I’ve seen him  wince.

Dennis and his mom live in Nicaragua. We have visited them twice. They dwell in poverty and are helpless to obtain required medical attention

But was impresses me is the faith of his mom. I believe her name is Isabel.

For twelve years Isabel has knocked relentlessly on heavens doors appealing God for a miracle.

Her faith has not weakened. Her gratefulness to God astounds me.

The love for a son that cannot respond back such a long time can only be that of God’s.

I post these photos not just for you the reader, but in hope that someone who has the means will be moved to help Isabel and Dennis.

Shalom!

What Made My Day Today?


This photo has thrilled my heart. It was sent today by my friend Rafael Rodriguez in Nicaragua.

On our last trip there, one rainy and muddy day, we visited one of the grimmest places I’ve been to.

It was the little hut of a blind mother, one blind daughter, and second normally seeing one. Enclosed within this tiny dirt floor shanty was a miniature room with a broken bed and a rotting mattress.

On the bed slept the seeing sister with her four kids and on the mattress the blind one with her three.

It thrills me that with funds that have come in, this beautiful home is being built for them.

This is the beauty of missions!

This is why I say that every Christian should do at least one missionary trip somewhere, no exceptions, and no excuses! It will radicalize your life forever.

Two Important Prayer Requests From My Missions Trip


Would you join me in praying for these urgent situations?

Many thanks,

Jose

A family has touched me is Pastor Mario’s. Mario and his wife are lovely people of God. They are extremely poor. Two of his daughters eight years ago, became sick and are now in wheel chairs. His third daughter, Diana, who took care of her invalid sisters fell into a fire and severely burned her body.
My prayer request is for the healing of these three beautiful girls. Diana is in desperate need of surgery if God does not miraculously heal her. Mario is struggling to make payments on a truck which he purchased so that he can transport his daughters in their wheel chairs. He needs two beds that I believe the money came in for. This is Mario’s wife.

Little Dennis was born with hydrocephalus eleven years ago. His mom is an amazing woman of faith. She has stood, and still stands in anticipation, of God restoring her son to him. Would you join us in our prayer network for Dennis’s healing?
