Savior was to tell me they needed to get married (instead of just living together).

And they did! The next week, after a lesson on baptism, they said, “We want to be
baptized this Sunday.” So we did! Everything the Holy Spirit deals with them in
their hearts, they are willing to do. They honestly know “next to nothing” about
the Bible but have such a hunger to know God and His Word that
they are reading five chapters or more per day and spending time
together in prayer.

Almost daily, I receive a text message from Adrian with a word of encouragement
that they are praying for me and the ministry of our church. Adrian and Erika
are so excited about their new life in Christ and are in church for every service or
activity. After going with us to a one-day Bible conference at a Spanish church in
South Carolina, Adrian told me he was willing to accept the challenge from one
of the messages for young men to accept the call to ministry and to preach God’s
Word. “Wow!” I am honestly overwhelmed by what I am witnessing God do in
the hearts of this young couple. Thanks be unto God for his unspeakable gift (2
Corinthians 9:15).

Will you please lift up this young
couple in prayer as God continues
to do a mighty work in their hearts
and pray that the Lord will receive
all the honor and glory for this
unspeakable gift? They continue
to battle with their past, having
only been saved for a few months,
and are receiving persecution
from some family members. Pray
for God to give us wisdom as we
disciple them and guide them in
God’s Word.
