So, I haven't written in a few days... mostly because all of the thoughts swirling in my head aren't to be made public yet ;)
But, I have been thinking about how its be pretty awesome to watch God work-- in lives, through lives, through little (nothing special) me.
Every once in a while God puts someone on my heart. Sometimes that person needs nothing but prayer, sometimes there is a physical need that maybe I can help meet, and sometimes just being there to talk with, someone to listen, someone to give a hug.
Sometimes those people turn out to be great friends, some now come to our little church here in Ixtapaluca, and some are no longer really in my life (just here for a season type thing).
Anyways, over the last few weeks there is this guy on my street (He actually reminds me a lot of my dad) has broken my heart. I have observed him and his family basically since I have moved in. They have always been nice, said hi, keep to themselves, never have loud parties and we pet each others dogs!
But, recently I have noticed he goes into the city every Monday (i know this because i have ridden the combi back from the city at the same time and have seen him get off the la paz combi a couple other Mondays) and comes back with a giant bandage on his arm. Now i am assuming he is going to some sort of hospital and receiving some sort of treatment.
So recently, I have been praying for him and his sons that live with him. I don't know their needs but I pray.
But yesterday, this man got off the combi as i was walking my dog and he stopped by a building, fell to the ground and starting uncontrollably vomiting.
In about 2 seconds i had the following reactions: I don't do well with puke, i need to help that man, and will he be embarrassed if i walk over there.
But the "need to help" reaction won--- Maggie and I ran over to the Man. Instantly maggie laid down beside him and was just there, it was cute! Anyways, I helped the man up. He assured me he didn't need any more help and off he went.
Anyways, the breaking of my heart for this man, for whatever reason God has allowed it.
I ask you to pray with me for him and his sons! I ask you for an opportunity to talk to them, to show them the Love of God, and if there is a need that I can meet or can help me- that it is made known to me!
Thanks for praying!
