“Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, Or the captives of the righteous be delivered? But thus says the LORD: “Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, And the prey of the terrible be delivered; For I will contend with him who contends with you, And I will save your children” Isaiah 49:24, 25
On Saturday September 21st, the Kennewick Spanish church rejoiced in the Lord. Indeed, we heard the voice of the Lord saying “Enter into the joy of your Lord” Matthew 25:21 hence many church members joined in prayer for a youth who was away from his home. The lad’s mom is a new member of our church, and she requested prayer for her son. This sister was so sad because her son was out of home and sick. However, the wonderful thing was that this youth came back home and the Lord healed him, so he could come to the evangelistic meeting and on Friday night, at the end of the service, he approached me and asked to be baptized! In fact, it was a double joy for our sister, the Lord not only brought the youth back home “safe and sound” but also the youth got baptized testifying of the power of the Lord to heal and to redeem.
Our sister could say, “For this child I prayed, and the Lord has granted me my petition which I asked of Him” (1 Samuel 1:27), thus, the promise of Isaiah 49:24, 25 was fulfilled in favor of this sister, praise the lord! In addition to that, two other people were added to the church.
