New Names Written in Heaven

As a part of our Widows Basket Program, each month we make a pastoral call to each of our sponsored widows. We bring them a basket of food and take a few minutes to talk with them and to pray with them.

Usually, this is a rather routine visit where the usual prayer requests are for the heat (or for the cold), for the aches and pains of old age, etc. But, this past Saturday God had prepared two very special hearts and when we asked them whether they wanted to ask Jesus into their hearts, they said ‘yes’.

Our local worker, Wenesou, then talked to them about the love of our Father in giving us His Son Jesus, and then Wenesou taught them how to pray. Such love! Such joy! Our God is so good!

Both of these ladies are named Lizetta. They have different family names but share the same first name.

One little Lizetta is not very mobile in that she can barely walk and is nearly blind. We will pass by her house from time to time to see that she is growing in her new faith.

The other little Lizetta is fairly mobile and she has expressed a desire to come to church. We will follow through with her also to see that she is able to get to church and that she is receiving spiritual food as well as natural food.

Please pray for these two new believers and also for the grandchildren that are under their care.

If you have thought about sponsoring a widow, please contact me or Sheltering Wings and we will gladly introduce you to a sweet woman who is in need of some help.
