So, hear hear!
We're having amazing experiences here in Zacatecas. Do you remember I told you about the new study Chris found for me? Well I didn't know the whole story behind it.
That day after Chris knocked on her door, her mother came out and when asked if someone in the house spoke English, she quickly said no. So Chris obviously thanked her and left, walking towards the next house. In those few seconds the daughter, with her mouth full as she was eating, ran outside the door thinking that Chris needed help. Anyway, all this to tell you that had it been a fraction of a second more or a decibel less (if Chris had spoken with a lower voice, she wouldn't have heard him), we would have lost her.
AND HEAR HEAR...
...she's making an amazing progress already. We haven't even finished chapter one yet and she already changed her schedule completely to come to the meetings in English on Sundays (and that costs her all her saturdays evening). And now that she knows about the Memorial, she has already organized to attend both the Memorial and the Sunday meeting. And you should see how ready and prepared she is when I go for the study.
Now the thing is...as I said before her family is catholic right? When we first started the study the mother was really nice to us, but eventually it came out from the daughter that she was kind of opposing her.
Then, one day, the daughter decided to show her what she had learned that morning studying with us and she showed her Exodus 20:4,5 about idols from her Catholic Bible. The mother's jaw dropped. She couldn't believe it. She had never seen that scripture in the Bible. Well after talking for long with the daughter, finally the mother decided to start the study in Spanish with the brothers who were visiting her bringing the magazines.
Can you believe it?
Then, again, one day the daughter shared with her mother God's name as she had learned it that morning. Now the mother calls God only Jehovah and prays using his name AND....
... AND... she got rid of a baby Jesus which was on the table where we used to study and today she told us that she wants to give it away because she doesn't believe in idols any more. And she also told us that she's grateful to Jehovah that she can see the truth now.
Only problem is that the husband now doesn't want her to study so the only way she can learn is by listening to the daughter explaining what she study with us.
Soooo... yeeeaaahhh.... cool huh?
And, last Sunday we had 8 interested ones at the KH and it seems that they're all regular. One of them found our service overseer and his wife in Starbucks and heard them talking about the Bible, so he walked up to them and told them that he thinks he should have a study with them. Never missed one ever since and he's coming to all the meetings. Another one, wrote to the Organization and asked for some books in English so when our COBE went to deliver the package it came out that he used to study a lot and that he had a rough life but he talks of Jehovah like a close friend and father. Never missed the study or the meeting ever since.
Well well well... Jehovah is blessing Zac that's for sure!
So if you're wondering where to go and want to ask any info, go ahead!
