When we first moved here to Argentina we arrived at night.
Early the next morning we started hearing the LOUDEST screams, yelling, and carrying-on outside our window. I began to PRAY for I didn't know WHAT IN THE WORLD was going on. I seriously thought there was a RIOT and Prayed for God's protection!
Well, we soon learned that there was a DRUG BAR FOR YOUNG PEOPLE just a few doors down from our house. =(
The young people would go there and stay ALL NIGHT and then around 5:00 AM the young people VERY HIGH ON DRUGS would come out and have RIOTS in the streets, screaming, yelling, banging drums, BREAKING GLASS in the nearby store windows, racing cars and motorcycles up and down the main street, etc.
Each morning it made my heart SO SAD!
So, I told my family that I was going To PRAY THAT JESUS WOULD CLOSE THAT BAR DOWN (and save the owner and those young people.)
It was such a SAD thing to hear those YOUNG people (ages 15 or so and up), wasting their lives by doing DRUGS and being so high they acted like animals! What if it were MY Kimberly out there?
Those young people never DREAMED that there was a concerned American Mommy inside a house nearby PRAYING for their souls!
My family then joined me in praying for the closing of this bar!
Well, Just this week I thought to myself,
"Hey! I haven't been hearing those young people screaming in the mornings lately."
I kept meaning to ask Phillip about it, when he brought up the subject.
TONIGHT... Phillip had asked someone who works in the store next to the bar about the bar, and he said that ....
THAT BAR CLOSED DOWN...
PRAISE THE LORD!!!
I'm not for sure if the owner and young people got saved yet or not, but God has answered PRAYER and closed down that HORRIBLE BAR!
THANK YOU, DEAR JESUS!!!
I have no idea where those young people are, but God does and can still save their souls. Will you join me in praying for them as they cross your mind?! Thanks!
