What If This Was You?

I have mentioned different times about our dear friend Baudilio who was saved in January. He is so faithful to church and Bible studies. He is 65 years old and has never learned to read and write. He was so excited today as our friend Nidia taught him his vowels. He did so good. Can you imagine not knowing how to read and write? What would life be like? He said when he uses the buses and travels about the city, he travels by memory. But of course there are certain areas where he has to guess. He can't read street signs. Pray for Baudilio that he will learn to read, so he can enjoy God's written Word. It is not an easy task at his age. We are hoping to start reading classes, there are many maids and workers in this area who have very little education. Nidia is studying to be a teacher, so she really enjoys getting experience. I would like to take advantage of these classes to share God's Word and see these contacts start attending our church. Help us pray about this idea.

Hooray for Baudilio...
He is such a nice man, and I'm so happy for him. I know he can learn this, because he is so good at memoriizing things...and what a wonderful teacher. Nadia is just perfect for the job.. what a sweet lady. I'm happy for both..
Congratulations....
