Sin...Satan.....Heavy Heart

Tonight I write you with a heavy heart. It saddens me to see that there are still so many people in the world that are living a life where they are tormented by their sin. It pains me to think that the devil can get a person so low and so beaten down that they think and feel there is no other way but to end life. This week I watched a sad video of a 15 year old girl whose mistake her sin tormented her everyday. Where people showed no compassion but constantly beat her down and told her that she was worthless. It reminds me of the story of the women at the well. You know she was not a "good women". She had had many husbands...many men in her life. But I know she was ever grateful the day that the Lord spoke to her and changed her life forever. I am sure that the Lord was trying to talk to this young girl but she felt she had no-one in this world that she could run to. I can't say whether or not she had trusted Christ as her Savior before she ended her life but without Christ she has no hope. It is a shame that we live in a world that is so cruel and selfish and a world where parents do not care enough to control their children. This is just one story.

Over a month ago we were approached by a friend here in Honduras who has a young co-worker who found out she was pregnant. This young 20 year old women was raped while at the beach with her friend. She decided that she was going to have this baby and give it away. That is where we came in. Our friend told her all about our home and the opportunity that she had by placing her baby ...her little girl in our care. She was 7 months at the time. Due to the fact that this was a situation that the girl did not care to remember she did not want to have anything to do with the girl and was going to sign her into the home for 18 years. We talked back and forth to our friend and the girl wanted to be tested to make sure that her and the baby had no communicable diseases before she was born. Last week we were informed that the mother took some pills to abort the baby. Tonight, we learned that at 8 months and 7 days pregnant that little girl died and went to be with Jesus. It breaks my heart to know that the devil got into this young girls head and made her think that there was no other way. She  was almost full term. This little baby girl almost had a home. However, a life with out Christ....leaves a void that the devil jumps right on into. Now, this poor young girl not only has to live her life everyday with the fact that she was taken advantage of but she has to live her life everyday knowing that she killed her own baby. Friends that is exactly what the devil wants you to do...he wants you to get so low and so weak that you feel you have no hope. I am here to tell you friends that there is HOPE...his name is Jesus. He was born, he died and he suffered so that we could have eternal life. If you are a Christian it is your job to reach out to the the the poor......don't be a by- will have to answer for that one day....all those people who witnessed that poor teenager getting slammed and bullied will have to answer for that. I don't want to think that I had a role in someone taking their own life. How sad it is to think that we live in such a society where there is no remorse. If you are saved.....I challenge you all to do a Pay it forward.....reach out to someone that you would normally never talk might be that little thing that you do that keeps that person from making a mistake that would forever change their life....give HOPE!
