Brock's message about that scripture "whatever you do for the least of these, you do for me" has wrecked me. I'm finally beginning to see what it's all about. As one of the pastors said one week, "Instead of trying to be Jesus to everyone else, see them as Jesus and then they will naturally see Jesus in you." I've been more aware of people around me recently and trying to really listen to the Holy Spirit.

The first morning that we went to the camp, I was drawn to a security guard at the venue. Her name is Rosa. Everyday, I would see her and talk with her. She doesn't speak perfect English, but we were still able to communicate. On Wednesday, as we were leaving Brock said, "There's your friend." I hadn't seen her yet that day, so I went to speak with her.

Let me set this up for you. I was very tired and a little discouraged on this particular day. It was just one of those days. Almost immediately in our conversation, Rosa, with tears in her eyes said, "You and your husband are warriors for my Lord. Thank you for speaking to these kids. Keep following your heart and always listen to His voice." Rosa, in her broken English, ministered to me more than I've been ministered to in a long time. In fact, I've never felt that way before. That day Rosa was Jesus to me. I literally felt as if Jesus Himself were speaking to me and looking at me. I thought that the Holy Spirit was drawing me to Rosa so that I could help her in some way, but that wasn't the case. Rosa was sent there to encourage me!

I am so thankful that Rosa was obedient to our Lord and thus ministered to you. I pray for you and Brock every day, but do not often take the time to say, "Good job! Keep on doing God's work." I am truly glad that Rosa was there for you and have thanked Him for her. It sounds like Rosa is one of God's Angels! I truly believe that there are angels among us and that when we need one God sends them our way.

God Bless!
Love ya,
