Just returned to the Hotel and wanted to write before I went up to bed for the evening.
What a special night! I am guessing there were about 30 women tonight,(see the above photo) more are expected tomorrow from not only the church but the community. It was as if I stepped right into the Philippines. All of these lovely ladies are from there and have been in the states for many years, some 6 and others as many as 26. Tonight was a time of having a meal together and then I was asked to share my testimony as to how I came to know the Lord. What fun! I love to relive those early days when I was in that first love with the Lord. I am always reminded of how He sought me, I was not in a place where I was looking for Him at all, but His precious loving kindess led me to repentance, true repentance! Not I am sorry I got caught but Father forgive me, I need You with all my heart! There were many tears of joy and tears of sadness yet His faithfulness to redeem and rebuild was clearly shared and they were so encouraged! I ended the night by singing "My Life is in Your Hands" and once again I find myself in a different place, divinely drawn by the Lord because He knows I am unashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and proud to speak of Him every chance I get!
Thanks for the prayers and the e-mails with kind words.
Up early in the morn and off to a day of teaching, talk with you afterward.
I love you all, Cindy
