This Made Me Smile!

You may remember that Mateo accepted Christ a couple days before we left for furlough. Then we just left him for 5 months! We had been friends with him for over 2 years, and during that time he was not interested in God at all... but God was interested in him! He had been working in Mateo's heart all along. When Mateo accepted Christ there was a definite change in him. It was a real decision that he had worked over long and hard.

We weren't sure what we would find when we got back. Well Mateo is still different! He has been a huge help this week. He went with Jimmy to SR for the adult Bible study and he has been at our house helping Jimmy get the sets ready for the drama next week.

The part that made me smile though was when we dropped him and Aaron with his costal of corn off in New Horizon Monday night. Aaron is 70 years old and was going to the opposite side of the community as Mateo. As we were driving off I turned around and saw Mateo catch up with Aaron and take the large 50lb+ bag from his back to carry it to his son's house for him!
