Returning to the Past – 53th Part
Spain was a place of learning and also a place where I shed many tears.
Every place we learn a lot in, we learn to love it a lot too.
Every time the church was growing, the media attacked us. Obviously there is a reason behind it all. These daily struggles helped us learn how to express our faith and mature internally. And because of these difficulties, we learned things we would have never learned if they did not happen.
It was in Spain that I started doing things I had never done before: expressing my faith in a challenging way. I did not accept to only bear the title of a Pastor’s wife with out taking action. I really wanted to win souls. But how could I win souls? How?
I began to observe the situation around me, and began to invest in where I saw a weakness. I saw this in many areas, but I focused on bringing into existence results through the work I was doing:
I did meetings with the assistants and the Pastor’s wives, I evangelized on the streets, and I worked in some of the church meetings.
But even after expressing my faith, there were still satisfactory results. Why? There were certainly improvements, but not a revolution.
Of course, a revolution does not occur from night to day. However, this was not the results I expected, I wanted to see the multiplication in our work.
How so? By doing a quality job with someone, and that person with someone else and so on. That is what I expected. For that reason I began working intensely, in my point of view, in the meetings, but nothing I expected or rather wanted happened. There had to be something more.
In the next post I will talk about what I did to provoke change.
