A True Story

My mother-in-law just wrote about Alfonso, a believer in the church here in San Juan del Rio, who died last night.  His testimony is a real-life example of the effectiveness of the World Cup tracts.  He came to the Lord through one and then led his drinking buddy to the Lord (both of them were alcoholics).

Alfonso came to our Jornada office several years ago holding a World Cup tract. He said, I found this on the ground and want to know more. He was hard to understand when he talked and we found out later that we was basically an alcoholic who had lost his family because of his habit. We asked Dan Kendal to study the Bible with him, he accepted the Lord and his life was turned around, but of course he suffered a lot of physical problems because of his drinking. One of his drinking buddies, Felipe, became a Christian because of Alfonso’s testimony to him and he’s part of our church.

    You never know, do you? Blessing as you settle into the routine again. I'd love to see/hear more sometime about the Dan Kendal's funeral.
