Thank You For Praying (video clip added)

Thank you very much for praying yesterday over the Quinceañera. We went there excited and with great expectation that God would speak to not only the family, but the guests as well. I was overwhelmed with joy as I received numerous emails from many of you for prayer support over this. I believe that God is still working in the hearts of those who heard His Word. For the most part everyone was attentive and listening. I do not know what God has done or is still doing in their hearts as there were not many comments made after the message. One comment came from one of the former candidates for the Presidential Seat of the County we’re in as he gave the traditional Toast making reference to the message as he spoke. It will be interesting to see the fruit that comes from this, my prayer is that the Lord is still working in the hearts of the family especially; they were very appreciative at the end. The door has been opened, we went in, came out, and they left the door open…Praise God!

Congratulations and Happy Birthday to América Ruby Águila Costilla; she looked great!
Here she is walking in as her Grandfather receives her.

The Word.

The traditional Bals/Dance. Escorted by her "Chambelanes"--three brothers and a friend.

The cake!

There is a short video clip of the traditional tossing of the barbie doll where all the girls under 15 dance around her and at the count of three, she tosses her "past" behind her and gives her childhood "toys" away.

Thanks again for your prayers and please keep praying that the Lord would draw this family back to Him.
