the cross in Uruguay!!Home > Updates > the cross in Uruguay!!
What an awesome and glorious day! With God’s help, I was able to carry the cross nearly 12 miles throughout the capital city of Montevideo! The cross is literally being held together w/ wood glue, chewing gum, duct tape, cardboard and prayer! It rained most of the day. I’m only praying it doesn’t “melt” my repairs. Ha! The cross is still in need of major repairs, but it held together well enough to walk!
The rain didn’t seem to stop people from coming to the cross, though! Many were still wanting to stop and talk and pray! I had the privilege of sharing and praying with many, many precious people!
It’s always more challenging to share in another language! I get by in Spanish, but the accent here is very different so it’s a little challenging to understand well. I feel that I do more talking than listening. I don’t like that as much. I want to be able to hear the hearts of the people, then speak to those needs, not just preach to them! I’m so thankful that the Holy Spirit already knows their heart and that ultimately it is He who speaks to their heart! What a privilege to have to totally depend on God! May Jesus increase and I decrease; may He be glorified in every way! May every person who comes to the cross know that they are precious and loved!!
