We had a surprise when we got to the market last Thursday.
Sonia was putting away all of her fruit and cleaning up as fast as she could. And she told us she wanted to go visit her boyfriend at work at talk to him.
Apparently, one of the first times we went to visit her at the market, she told us she wanted us to go visit Pedro, and we had just never gotten around to it.
And on Thursday, she said, "If not now, when?"
So off we went. We went to the factory his family owns where he also works, and sat down in the office and started to chat. We got to know him a bit, and then we shared the story of the prodigal son. He was moved, and Ester continued to share about the love of Christ, and asked if he wanted to accept Jesus Christ into his heart. He said yes, so we prayed with him.
When we finished, Ester asked him how he felt, and he said, "Wow."
What a perfect expression, "wow."
Jesus Christ has come to live inside your heart. Wow!! Shouldn't we explode with love and joy and grace? It's big! It's exciting! It's awesome! Is there a better gift in the whole world? Let's act like it!!
So we are now doing discipleship at Sonia's house with her family on Wednesdays, and on Saturdays we will be doing discipleship with Pedro. Plus we are visiting Sonia to disciple her at the market every Thursday. This is the life!!
