Don’t Let Your Guard Down
November 19, 2021
Let’s get the word out to not let our guard down. When things are tough we stay alert, but when things seem to be okay that’s when the enemy slips up on us and hits us when we aren’t looking. Pastor Jada spoke to me after our crusade last night about me staying alert. It got me to thinking along this line.
I want to share a testimony that happened last Sunday. It happened to Nahum and I am going to let him say it in his own words:
(Nahum speaking -- Sunday, Nov. 14)
“I was traveling to la Ceiba from Tela to go give our Sunday service. I wanted to leave the hotel at 6 am but my wife suggested we leave at 7 so we left at 7 am. As we were on the way we found two young ladies that had fallen from a motorcycle. We pulled over to put them in the back of our truck and took them to the near by clinic. We left them there and went on to go do our service since we only had one hour left to get to la Ceiba. We had a great service and as we were going back to Tela I stopped in the clinic to see how the girls were doing and pray for them. Only one of the girls was there with her husband so I was able to speak with the couple about salvation and they both recieved Jesus as there Lord and Savior. It was good to see that they did it as a couple and then we went back to Tela for the evening service.”
This is the kind of situation that we have been running into on a daily basis. Every church service, or restaurant, or story has desperate people who seem like they are waiting in line for us to pass by them with a word of encouragement. We can’t afford to let our guard down for even one moment.
We pray to You, Father, that You help us to say focused so that we can complete our mission while we are here in Honduras. Even when the devil is throwing obstacles in our way You have delivered us. We depend on Your help. In Jesus's name, Amen.
Blessings on the journey, and remember the best is yet to come.
