To wrap all this up…Juan called our landlord to find out that the painter REALLY was going to come this Monday…and to our surprise, he really did arrive. The landlord did say that perhaps he’d have something that Juan could do for him so he took Juan’s number. That’s probably just being nice more than actually having any projects in mind for Juan, but one never knows.
Beth’s mom suggested that we could have Juan paint our guest room and that would provide Juan with some work. That sounds like a good idea.
Finally, you could join us in helping Juan and Carmen in a way that they’ll really appreciate and will definitely help them out:
Pray for them that God will continue to provide for their needs and that through these trials, they will will be purified and found continually true in their faith.
Pray that God will provide a good job for Juan and that the day-care will continue to grow and be a help to their family’s income.
Pray the Christian and Nayeli will grow and see how God is taking care of their family through these trials. They have been two of the strongest teenagers in the church and these experiences could cement their faith and teach them valuable lessons on trusting God through tough times and faith-trials.
I hope that all of us will learn and grow through our own trials just like Juan, Carmen, Christian, and Nayeli are learning through theirs.
Thanks for praying!
