As we entered each house and begin sharing with each person, a peace washed over me, settling my nerves and loosening my tongue. God gave me the words to speak, and Nancy and Roxanne filled the gaps of my broken Spanish. Praise God that five people entered the kingdom of heaven that day!
Two verses from the New Testament have been the constant themes of my time in Venezuela: “I can do all things through him who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13) and “He said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me” (2 Corinthians 12:9). Although I feel weak and incapable, God is all-powerful, and his name is being glorified in Venezuela.
