La Problema no es de Ti
Tonight was Wednesday night bible study. The past few weeks we have been studying prayer. It has been awesome for me because I understand more and more of what is being said each week, but it has also been a while since I’ve been in a bible study…actually opening the bible to study. Tonight we read from Hebrews 11:6. “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek him” I believe that we are ernestly seeking Him with the water system in Cuesta Arena. I believe that it is only because of Him that we have gotten as far as we have. Later on we read from 1 Peter 1:15 which says “But just as He who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do.” Regardless of what happends with the water system in Cuesta Arena, we are called to be holy in all we do. We will continue to praise God for the many changes in the hearts of the people and the continuous blessings He has shown us.
Tonight we talked about prayer and our attitudes when we pray. So many times we pray for the change in the circumstances when we really need to pray for a change in ourselves. During the pastor’s closing prayer, she said “La Problema no es de Ti” which means “The problem is not God.” We know it is not God’s doing that the water isn’t up and running but we must have faith and continue to be holy in all we do.
It is a struggle for me to be here another year with the medical team going to Cuesta Arena. Last year, I struggled translating for the doctors as they told person after person that the reason for their illness is lack of clean water. Here we had a system sitting unusable with people ill from the water they were using. I was hopeful for a new year where they had had clean water and the doctors could see a change in the health of the people. I know that God will provide, but we must be faithful and holy along the way.
As more and more research is being done on the water samples brought back from Cuesta Arena it is looking more and more like the $12,500 quote is the best way to go. If we can get 25 churches to pledge $500, we would have it easily. I know that at least 25 churches are involved in this project. Please let me know if your church would be willing to committ.
