Praise Report Time!
I spoke to Daniela this afternoon. She is doing very well, still working as a chef in Cancún. She told me two very exciting things during our conversation!
1) She told me she is working on formally disassociating herself from the Jehovah's Witnesses!
2) She was getting a haircut one day when the hairstylist asked her if she had ever accepted Jesus Christ into her heart as her Savior. The hairstylist took her in another room, laid hands on her and prayed with Daniela to give her life to Christ! It is still sinking in -- I can't even believe what I am typing even though I know it's true! Daniela said when she was praying it was as if a weight was lifted off her shoulders. It's amazing what God can do when we put our trust in Him!!...and in a barber shop of all places!
She sounds so much happier than she was a few months ago when I last posted to this thread. She is feeling more content with herself and has a stronger personal relationship with God than before. She still doesn't belong to a church, even though she knows she should find one (which is difficult anyway because of her 70 hrs/week work schedule), but I have always told her -- and continue to believe -- that if you have a relationship with Christ based on the Word of God, that is more important than any religious org you could ever belong to.
Thank you all for helping me minister to Daniela with your prayers for her and for me, and all the things I have learned since coming to this board!
¡Alabado sea nuestro Señor Jesucristo por los siglos de los siglos! (To our Lord Jesus Christ be the praise forever and ever!)
