Hello all!

Hi Pals!

I just wanted to greet you all and thank you for your continued prayer for my family. Please pray especially for my grandparents: they are not saved, but my grandfather has started going to church with us. The church service is in English, which he does not understand, but I translate a bit, and show him the verses in his Spanish Bible. On the other hand, my uncle who is a Jehovah's Witness has given them a NWT "bible" and I am a bit concerned that he may attempt to confuse them , or discourage my grandpa from going to church with us. Thank you for your prayers!

Grace be to you and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;
Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.
And whether we be afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: or whether we be comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation.
And our hope of you is stedfast, knowing, that as ye are partakers of the sufferings, so shall ye be also of the consolation.

-2 Corinthians 1:2-7

God bless you all!

Oh Little Pilgrim Pal!
I was wondering how your grandparents are and it is so good to know that your grampa is going to church with you, and I didn't even know that he is Spanish. I will send you some of the texts that Mr. Tries makes that are in Spanish.
Of course the devil will try to discourage these blessed events with you grampa, so we will pray especially more for him and for you uncle too Little Pilgrim pal.....Love Mrs. Shirkie

Amrita is right Little Pilgrim pal...Keep witnessing and YOU are the bible that both your grandparents and your uncle are reading![in ANY language!]

Robin.. I love your profile picture!
