This week was hard..... I don´t think I´ve ever been rejected by so many people. There were countless times this week when I felt that I would make a better use of my time laying in bed. But even with all of the rejection and discouragement we saw the hand of God helping and guiding us.

After a day of much discouragement we finally found a woman who let us sit down to share a 5 minute message with her and her family. She had a little girl who is 7 years old named Elain. This little girl has so much faith! When we finished the lesson she asked if she could pray and she prayed the most heart felt, sweetest prayer for us. Her prayer was exactly what we needed to lift our spirits!
Sandra´s Miracle 20 YEARS later
Another day this week all of our lessons fell through and we didn´t know where to go. We said a prayer that we could find those we needed us. We found this woman Sandra who was baptized over 20 years ago but shortly after fell inactive. She said she had the desire to return to church but didn´t know how or when it was because she had moved to a different island. We invited her to church and she said she would go. On Sunday she showed up to church and she sat next to the man who taught and baptized her more than 20 years ago! And guess where this man is from? Utah. He happened to be in Cape Verde this week for HEFY. WOW!
God is truly aware of his children. Never doubt that God is there and listening to your prayers! I´m so grateful for the opportunity I have to be here in Cabo Verde serving the Lord and my brothers and sisters here!
Thank you for your support and love!
