They do not attend any church, although they are confirmed and baptized Catholics and are devoted to Guadalupe. They used to live a few streets away from us, but not very long ago, they bought property in a place surrounded by fields and unpaved roads, and they built a house and moved there. Now, instead of a quick walk to their house, we go by bike.

While the kids play, I am either outside with them keeping an eye out to make sure the games don´t get too rough, or if it´s raining, inside but still watching. Abraham chats with the adults for awhile about all kinds of different topics. The father of the family spent several years in the States, as did various other relatives, so sometimes the conversation is about his times there. Eventually, Abraham tells a story from the Bible, and then he and the father discuss the story. Some time after that, we bike back home.
Please join us in praying for the family, that they could have a personal relationship with Jesus. Right now they cling to tradition without knowing much about the Bible or about God. We are thankful that they continue to be welcoming friends and willingly listen to the stories Abraham tells from the Bible.
