Here’s another story from Josue in Venezuela.
Members of the Texasa team met a 25-year-old man who is in the National Guard. His name is
Luis Alfredo Azabache. He was working at a plaza when he was approached by Mateo Rendon, who gave him an invitation and an evangelistic pamphlet. He started reading the pamphlet when David Tamez came and called him by his name (as it appears in his name tag).
He was very receptive and had questions about God. David answered his questions and presented the gospel to Alfredo. One of the questions that Alfredo asked David is “How do I know that God has forgiven me?” David read the Scripture to him from 1 John 1:7-9. David told him that Christ paid for our sins and that He is faithful to his Word. Alfredo broke down and asked Christ into his life in a very emotional moment.
At the end, Alfredo took off his military hat and gave it to David in a plastic bag and told him that it was in appreciation for having come all the way from Texas to share the gospel with a Venezuelan soldier.
David and Alfredo exchanged email addresses so that they can keep in touch. We are happy to be the Lord’s instruments along our Venezuelan brothers and sisters in sharing the message of Christ with the people in Caracas. Please keep us in prayer as we continue to invite and share the good news with people here in preparation for the evangelistic crusade Thursday through Sunday.
