Well, as you can see from today's photo, my prayer group ABSOLUTELY. ROCKS.
One friend sent us lasagna pasta, because she read on the blog that we can't get it here. Real Lasagna!! Can you believe it!?! And another friend sent candy, and socks, and mac-n-cheese. We were so blessed. And it all arrived in time for my birthday too. Although I know it wasn't just for me. (Though I like to think it was.)
So, now that the socks and pasta are out of the way, you're probably wondering what the Prince was doing at jail. Well, lemme see here...
The Prince was talking with a Deaf prisoner there last week, a man who was convicted (and truly guilty) of his crime. The man knows several of the Deaf men in our church, and had heard the Gospel before. My hubby, the Prince, shared the Gospel again last week. But, being a firm believer in letting the Holy Spirit work, didn't press him for a decision. (Love that about my man)
This week when he went back, the man's heart was SOFTENED, READY and HE RECEIVED CHRIST!!!!
Someone say AMEN one time!
Or just shout and give God some glory!
His whole eternity is changed. Not just his future when he gets out of jail. His eternity. Isn't that something? And I prayed for him. And so did a bunch of my friends at home. Though they didn't know his name, or the specifics of what the Prince had been doing, they were praying God would use us. And He did!
Blows my mind.
I am just so humbled by the things I have seen God do since we've been here. The people truly have a desire to learn. There are so many opportunities that we could be ministering outside our home 7 days a week. But we can't do that. God hasn't called us to wear ourselves out by trying to do everything, just those things He calls us to do.
Would you pray that God would send more laborers? Seems the fields are whitening faster than we can pick 'em.
Got a basket you could bring and visit? We sure could use some help.
