The year 2011 is turning out to be a much better year than 2010. We are happy to report that we have been witnesses to another spiritual birth. This past Wednesday, April 27, 2011, after Bible class, Julissa Ordoñez expressed her desire to be baptized for the forgiveness of her sins because she wanted to become a Christian. Upon hearing these good news, those who were still standing around the building enjoying fellowship and conversations immediately assembled toward the front of the building. Francisco Ramos was already talking to Julissa after he was told that she wanted him to baptize her.
Julissa is the second daughter of Carlos and Patricia Ordoñez. Her father first started bringing her and her older sister, Karla, since Julissa was about 2 years old, and even before Patricia became a Christian. Since then, her little sister Paola has been born, and her mother Patricia has become a Christian and has remained actively involved ever since. We are thankful that Carlos and Patricia are putting the Lord first in their family and we pray that all of them will continue to be tools of righteousness in God’s hands.
Keep Julissa in your prayers and she grows in her faith and as she matures into a Christian young lady. Pray, too, for her family, that they might continue faithfully in their walk with the Lord.
For the Master,
