A Drunken Caballero and Un Pobre Forastero

October 13, 2015

I had an amazing experience this week with treating and loving others as Christ would treat them.
On Sunday after church a drunk and his friend came and started talking to us and the members. And it was a little bit funny but mostly really sad.
Actually he was talking and we couldnt understand him so his friend was translating. 

He was asking for money and talking to us about his situation. He doesnt have a home and was wearing the only clothes he has.

So we were all standing there, listening, not rreally knowing what to do. and my companion turns to me for us to leave and she tells this man, "We'll be back in 10 minutes" and I go with her thinking she was just saying that so we could leave! 

But no, we walk to our house and she puts all the fruit we had into a bag, with some other things we had in the house, and then and goes and grabs her winter coat and we went back and she gave it all to him. It was definitely a powerful and humbling moment.

I hope we can all remember Jesus Christ in every moment of our lives. He is the center of it all, the reason for our hope and our happiness. 
"God be thanked for the divine gift of His Divine Son"

I love you all so much!!! 
Thank you for all your prayers and all your love!
