We were able to go to a fellow missionary's home for lunch on Christmas day and spent the day with several families. We had all the traditional trimmings, turkey and all! We had a great time celebrating with other believers!
The day after Christmas, I had the privilege of meeting with Tita again. She continues to be very receptive, which is uncharacteristic for a Spaniard. We talked for over two hours and touched on many important topics like: sin, death, eternal life, Jesus' death and its significance, forgiveness, and our accountability before God. Please continue to pray for her understanding as we continue to meet. She does not like the Bible, because she says that she doesn't understand it and that she always feels worse after she reads it. I was able to give her a very short summary of the story of the Bible and why it's so important for her to understand it. She seemed to be more open to the Bible after that, but is still hesitant. Please pray for wisdom on my part to know what to share with her and how best to explain these important themes of Scripture. It is very obvious that God is working on her heart, but she is still very confused about many key gospel concepts.
Andy's friend (see previous post) has prayed to repent of his sins and place his faith in Jesus Christ for life! From all indications, it appears that this was a genuine decision. He is reading his Bible on a regular basis, and he is open to attending a church that Andy found near his hometown. Please continue to pray for Andy's friend, and rejoice that the Lord is working around the world for His glory.
