We will start by saying God is good. No, check that.... God is Awesome!!!!!! Today was an experience of multiple blessings that I will never forget as long as I live. We began our day on an island called La Calzada. We drove about an hour, then took a 30 minute boat ride to finish the journey.
We broke into small groups to deliver bags of beans, rice, and soup. Lilly, a 19 year old who was called to missions at age 7, and preached in Peru at age 9, escorted the Hudson familia and translated for us. Her love for Jesus and passion for telling others about him is so evident, and we learned so much from this young lady. We had 5 bags to deliver. We really did not know what to expect. This remote island community was filled with homes made of mud and sticks. If you can imagine your living room being your entire house, you might have an idea of the size.
We met a man named Incarnacion in one of the homes. He told us it had been many years since any gringos had come to the island and he was so surprised and happy to see us. The conversation quickly turned to God. He joked that he might believe in Jesus when he was starting to die, as his father had right before his death at age 45. We continued to talk about God, how temporal this world is, and that we never know when we will die. We told him we did not want him to make a decision just because we were there, but only if he truly believed. He accepted Christ at the end of our conversation!!!
