As our time in the town where we work was coming to an end, Barry and I were trying to visit some people to see where they were at spiritually. I sat and spoke with Irlei (ear-Lay), Moise and Delfina’s oldest daughter.
I wrote a little about her asking for prayer earlier. Irlei has had a rough last 2 years. Some rebellion towards her folks, then a softening and this cycle has repeated itself a few times.
Irlei was one of those that wanted to share her testimony of salvation last month Lindy and Carol said, but when she stood to share she got so nervous she wasn’t able to speak and after a little while she sat down without saying anything. She has heard the gospel claims many, many times. She is having some major and bitter confrontations with her folks and is in a kind of dead lock for control of her life.
She was able to express herself very well, but it was sad as she said that since that time of almost publically expressing her faith till now she has changed her mind and does not want to trust Christ for salvation anymore.
She says the desire has left her to be saved — that it doesn’t bother her that she will go to hell like it used to any more. Satan has blinded her mind!
We share this to get you to pray for her soul — that the conviction would return, the desire to trust Christ to save her and make her his own would return and she would get saved soon!
2 Cor. 4:3, 4 NTL “If the Good News we preach is veiled from anyone, it is a sign that they are perishing. Satan, the god of this evil world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe, so they are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News that is shining upon them. They don’t understand the message we preach about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.”
