Tonight I used up a calling card and a half talking to our Precious Little Latin Lupe Lu! She had called the other day when I wasn’t home, so I decided that this evening would be a good time to catch up. What a splendid time we had. She says that she and her husband are doing good. She is six months pregnant and doing very well in her pregnancy. I was so pleased to see this picture of her. There was a time, a few months back, when she was so sick and so dehydrated that she weighed all of 78 pounds.
Guatemala is a land of deep spiritual darkness, and our “almost a daughter” is in the middle of an extended family that is steeped in superstition and even witchcraft. She confesses with her mouth the Lord Jesus, claims the power and blood of our Lord Jesus, and sings in the darkest nights, but things are often hard for her and many times confusing. Please pray for her. She is there without anybody in her family, and she is so vulnerable. Pray especially for a safe delivery and a healthy, happy baby. The area where she has come under the most pressure has been in the superstitions surrounding pregnancy. She has steadfastly refused to be party to the darkness, and I feel an urgency to pray for protection for both her and her unborn child.
Once again tonight, I choose to believe that the Loving Hands of our Heavenly Father can reach where mine cannot, and that this love I have for her is minute compared to His.
“The Lord bless you, and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you,
be gracious unto you;
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
