Five to six years ago I dove into re-learning the Spanish language. After traveling across the globe to places like Spain, Mexico, and Dominican Republic God showed me a mission field here in Birmingham. My bestfriend, at the time roommate, had already begun planting seeds in the lives of kids from mostly Spanish speaking backgrounds. Yesterday we both received an email from a precious young girl we spent alot of time discipling through Bible club and outreach. She lived in a trailer park with over 300+ spanish speaking families. You never know if you'll see fruit from the sewing, or salvation grow from the foundation...but sometimes you do. This is the sweet note we both got yesterday. Be encouraged friends...plant and sew the seeds, you could witness the power of God's word in due time.
Subject: Thank you note! :D
