This report comes to us from team leader Nancy with our team in Gaithersburg, MD:
Doug and I ventured out last Saturday. One of the things that I love about SPSE and that Doug manifests so well is the relational aspect of SPSE – to listen, befriend, proclaim and invite. The picture below exhibits Doug’s beautiful gift of getting right down with the people at their level and getting to know them. Robert lost his son Dante last July to an accident on his job. Robert was really grieving and Doug was able to share his pain with him and pray with him. Doug also prayed with Cynthia who lost her 36 year old brother recently in Africa. Please pray that God would console and strengthen them.
A beautiful young woman from Ghana was with her mom and walking with a walker. As I asked her if I could pray with her – she said that the doctors did not really know why she had so much swelling and pain in her legs and were running tests. As I prayed over her for healing, she and her mom felt consoled that God was with them and that He was hearing their prayer. Please pray that in the mighty Name of Jesus that all the swelling and pain would be gone and that God would give wisdom to the doctors. A Muslim woman also wanted prayers for her upcoming surgery and was given information about the good news. Please pray it will be successful and God would draw her to Himself. Also pray for Brownlee, Jeff and Fernando who are not baptized into any particular faith and were very eager to hear about the good news of the gospel, that the seed planted would bear much fruit. May God continue to bless and protect our little Chapter and that Our Lady would guide us.
Praised be Jesus Christ!
