A Redemption Story

We have a friend named Eduardo.  For many years his life was a train wreck.  He was into drugs and who knows what else.  He beat his mom.  And rumors in this little town, say he murdered someone.  I do not know if that is true or not.  I do not know what he did and what he did not do, but everyone knew he was bad news. 

Many tried to help him. 

And, when all things seemed hopeless, our preacher, Jorge, took Eduardo under his wing and helped him find new life.  New life in Jesus.  For several months, Eduardo has been a leader in our church, leading the song worship and prayers.  Recently, he was offered a scholarship to attend one of the Bible colleges that prepares men to be preachers.  He accepted and left immediately.

We will help Eduardo and Xinia with a wedding sometime this year. 

I know Eduardo has a story to tell and that God will use him in mighty ways.  I heard Xinia the other night in class.  She will make a wonderful preacher's wife and helper.

I just love to tell stories like this.  Praise be to God.
