Victories & Tragedy at the Ranch

Juana, a new believer in our ranch church, suffered a terrible tragedy recently. However, God is using it for the good of the people there, and for His glory!

When we arrived to lead the Bible study at La Polvora ranch a couple of months ago, we were saddened to learn that Juana, a new believer, had lost her husband the day before in a truck accident. She had just asked our group to pray for him the week before, as he was not a Christian.

We had the opportunity to go to Juana’s home, in front of more than 50 people, and pay our condolences. We were welcomed into the fenced area, and Phil had the opportunity to pray for the family and the community. Since then, we’ve been able to take some food and clothing needs to Juana and her two little daughters, and we invited to a family celebration!

God has used this tragedy to bring more of the people in that community to our Bible study, and weekly church services. Recently, two men have been coming and asking questions!

Please pray that God will use this to touch the hard hearts of the people in this ranch community, and that more of them will welcome us into their home to share the gospel and more of God’s Word.
