Family and Friends!! Its been another good week here in Zamacola with la Hermana Waldron! For the past 2 months we have been trying to visit Hermana Berenize. She is such an incredible woman. She is 30 years old and has 3 young and beautiful daughters the age of 5, 3 and 1 years old. Her life has been pretty difficult the past 3 months because she had fully committed to seperating from her husband. He had been really bad to her and didnt allow her to leave the house for anything, not even to visit her family or friends. She use to go to church about 4 years ago but then he stopped permitting her to go to church. She told us that she would escape and go to church if he didnt come home because he was out drunk somewhere. She always looked at the church as a refuge from the world. About 3 months ago she got the strength and courage to leave her husband. She knew that it would be really hard for her and her family since she doesnt have a job, and she would be seperating her family. But she prayed a lot about the situation and knew it was what she needed to do in order for her children to grow in the church. This past week was the first time that we have been able to teach her in her house. Right now she is living with her mom and her younger sister in their home. She is a very humble lady and has expressed her desires to us about getting baptized but when the time is right. We know that she is going to be such an amazing member and will help many others in the church. She is such a brave woman and has such great desires to do what is right. We hope that she will find great comfort within the church. My favorite thing that she told us was that nothing in life matters if you arent spiritually strong. You can have it all but none of that matters if you arent with the Lord. Remember that this is true. Nothing matters if we arent doing what is right in the sight of the Lord. I love you all! Have a great week! Love always, Hermana Flora
