Four families were blessed with a house and I was able to see how that happened. A team of about 45 people came to bless the needy here in my city of Ensenada. So we divided into four teams and in two days we built them a beautiful house.
The team also wanted to bless each family with groceries, so we took the moms shopping. "What?" they asked as I translated for two of the moms telling them that they could get whatever they wanted in the store. They were surprised and I am sure it was the first time they went to get groceries without a budget. "I don't need much", or "I don't know what to get," they would say as I would put more and more in their cart.
I got to encourage them telling them that God not only wanted their families to have a house but also to have food. And that they needed to seek God too since He was the one providing for them.
I've got to be honest; the thought of, "why can this not happen to me?" came to my mind as they were getting all kinds of groceries. But God spoke to me, "This is my time to give to others and be a bridge to help others! Through your translation others are being blessed and I am blessing you by seeing how I work. I am taking care of you Sarvia. Keep serving others and your time will come."
It was a great weekend of seeing God's hand moving and proving to the needy. It was a time where God reminded me that He is using me and this is just the beginning!!
Thanks for your prayers and support. You are allowing me to experience all this. God bless you all!
