Hilda and Gordan

Jill and I had the opportunity to visit one of the hospitals in Arequipa last week.  Here is our experience in Jill’s words.  …”One of our 40/40’s (college age missionaries), Nohemy went in for surgery on her foot.  I went to visit her and toured the hospital and the pediatric department.  As we visited one of the children and his mother, I saw a deep look of despair on her face.   The next day, I woke up for my early morning prayer and felt the Lord speaking me to go back and talk again with the mother and ask her how I could pray with her. 
When Robin and I visited with her and asked how we could pray-her eyes began to tear up as she shared how she had recently lost two brothers, and now her sister was in the hospital across town and her son, Gordan was there on the pediatric floor recovering from cleft palate surgery.”
Gordan is pictured in the photos and has several other medical problems, including still being unable to walk at the age of 18 months old.  Jill shared the plan of salvation using the EvangeCube, Hilda listened intently.  We prayed with her and Jill asked if she would be open to a home visit from some of the 40/40 missionaries.  She responded positively and stated that she doesn’t have many family members nearby.
Jill, Mapi and Henerietta have since visited Hilda in her very modest home.  She is very open to learning more about God and the Bible.  She is eager for her husband to attend church with her.  She is now meeting weekly with the 40/40’s and finishing her lessons out before the next week.  PLEASE say a pray for Hilda, Gordan and her family as you read this.  She is one of many whose lives are being touched by God via your support and PRAYERS.
Serving Him with you,
The Watters
