Seeking to Impact People for Christ

As we look over our last few months here in Portugal, we are more and more cognizant of how beautifully God orchestrates our lives to suit His purposes. It has been amazing to see His sovereignty in how He weaves things together for His glory and our good.

We have been actively praying to build relationships with those around us. We would like to "introduce" you to a few people with whom we are interacting; we are praying for the time we can share Christ on a more personal level with each of the individuals below. We covet your prayers for them, and for us.

As always, we THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH for your continued prayers on our behalf. May God continue to bless you richly for them.

D. - a 32-year-old unemployed chemical engineer

D. knocked on our door a few days before she moved into our building.  After a short conversation, it   became clear that she was looking for the building manager, who lives in 12D - we live in 2D.  She apologized for her error, we laughed, and I answered her questions.  Over the next few weeks, Susan would just "happen" to see D. outside. We met her mom and her in-laws on Easter as they were leaving our apartment building.  Two days later, D. knocked on our door, in her pajamas, crying.  She said, "I have been in the hospital, I was 3 months pregnant but I lost the baby, and I've locked myself out of my apartment."  Over the next 4 hours, Susan chatted with D. as they waited for the locksmith to arrive.  During this conversation, D. said, "There is a reason I heard 2D instead of 12D.  God doesn't make mistakes, He knew I would need you.  You are my guardian angel."  There have been other conversations about faith, life, culture and family.  She is not a believer.  

Please pray with us that God will let Susan have a continuing impact in D.'s life, and for wisdom for Susan in this relationship.

L. - a 73-year-old woman with "interesting" views about Christ

L. cleans the elevators and halls in our apartment building.  Susan has been chatting with her over the months as their paths cross.  This week, L. gave Susan a 30-minute speech about her "religious" views.  L. is very faithful to the Catholic church but has a few interesting twists in her faith.  She believes that Jesus "abandoned" us because He died on the cross, and that, as women, we are made in the image of Mary.  There was little that Susan could interject because L. did not want to listen.  

Please pray for opportunities to interact with L. and that God will open her heart to the real truths of His Word.
