Returning to the Past – 37th Part
After the children returned I focused more intensely on the work of God.
I remember that at the time, the Bishop responsible for California was doing a purpose with the Pastors on the Altar. They went to sleep in the church.
At that time, I had learned so many things about God and my faith, because of the pain that I had gone through and I also remember that at that time, I was a bit angry with some things in relation to the Work of God. I really wanted to be more used by God and I did not know what to do at this point.
Then came this purpose with the Pastors sleeping on the Altar of the Church to intercede for the people of God. I remember that I included myself in that purpose, even if the wives were not invited, but my faith invited me, and pushed me to do something.
It’s interesting how our faith never leaves us conformed. It always leads us to have strength, determination and above all definition.
I did not ask any wife if they were going to be there or not. I needed to be there. The fire burned inside of me so much so that I had to be there.
We took some covers and we were all sleeping on the Altar. I was next to Julio and the Pastors were each in their corner on the altar and every 3 hours we would wake up to intercede to God.
I remember that this church was a very old theater. There were many rats. They were so big that they looked like a cat, that’s what people said, but that did not stop me from going to Altar decided in what I needed to battle with God.
And so, during that night we woke up about 2 to 3 times to intercede.
This marked my life. There I saw that my faith had to be independent. There I discovered the strength that faith gives us.
