Welcome Mari Carmen!

Hello All,

Tonight, I had the priviledge of seeing the Lord add a daughter to his family. Her name is Mari Carmen. She is wheelchair bound, but has been a true inspiration with regard to how boundless she seems. It is not rare to see her wheeling through town with a lovely smile on her face. Yet, for all outward appearance, she had never received the Lord before. One of the first times I met her, I had spoken on the basis for the doctrine of Justification by faith. Other times, Pastor Carlos has shared similar messages that she took in quite regularly. While the Lord has been using us, the most obvious tool of the Lord's have been Juan Carlos and Claudia, who attend to her and are exceptionally dedicated Christians.

Tonight, she made that confession with her lips that she would take Jesus Christ as her Savior! It was truly exciting and makes sense of the last two difficult days that we have had here in Jerez personally.

Pray for Mari Carmen, that she would show signs of genuine conversion and bear fruits of repentance. But more than anything, that the joy of life that she has naturally would now blossom into real beauty, as the source becomes the transforming power of the Holy Spirit, and not simple predisposition. I would ask you to pray that she would shine the love of Jesus in a wonderful, miraculous way.

Of course, at the same time, we ask that you would pray that the enemy would not be able to steal away what the Lord has planted in her heart. The appeal of tradition and familial pressure is very intense here.

What a joy to see and be part of it! Praise the Lord!

Blessings To The Friends Of Spain,
Frank Sanchez
