However, we have an enemy of our souls who does NOT like people to grow in Jesus and he has been fighting! While we were gone to help our church in Cartagena a HORRIBLE thing happened. A girl who had attended the Christian school here and had attended our church for years...hung herself in her own home!!! My heart is BROKEN! The stupid devil fools people into thinking that suicide is an easy way out...when nearly all suicides are a defiant act in the face of God. Unless one is mentally not responsible...they are commiting a SIN and breaking God's commandment in Exodus 20 that says, "Do Not Kill!"
A man had a friend who commited suicide, later that man commited suicide, then his daughter, then the girl from our church (Who had been friends with that daughter!) Suicide DOES NOT bring peace...there is no peace in Hell. Now, this girl's brother has been having dreams urging him to commit suicide too. That is the devil!!! Please pray for him, his name is Jose. He is the only one of his family that has really been faithful to church and seeking after God.
We covet your prayers for our people here in Colombia! These are the little "plants" that God has planted and we are praying and trusting HIM to help them to grow and to go to Heaven someday. Thank you for your prayers!
