On Easter Sunday afternoon Phillip felt on his heart to do a bunch of calling on people here in Colombia. He called on one house and when the lady opened the door Phillip greeted her and asked her how she was doing. She said just fine...and then burst into tears. She told him that just 2 hours or so before he had arrived, she had decided to take her own life. She was lying in bed with a bottle of pills and was going to take them to end it all. She is the mother of 5 children some of whom are still small and were just outside playing. PRAISE THE LORD, she realized that this was wrong, God sent someone to knock on the door at that moment and she decided against it. She told Phillip that GOD HAD SENT HIM to her!! Phillip prayed with her and for her. She had been living with a man that must be dealing with other powers, for she was seeing and hearing strange things that were scaring her. She asked that man to leave, but told Phillip to please pray that she would be strong if he came back to ask her to live there again. (They have lived together for 17 years!!)
She was in church with 2 of her children a couple Sunday mornings ago and happy to be there. I didn't have our camera so I didn't get a picture of her. But, her name is Christina. If you think of her, please pray for her and her children. Thank you! This world is full of hurting people...may we be HIS HAND extended to them! We are the only "jesus" some people will ever see.
