Dear Friends and Supporters of NGM:
Yes I am back in Canada and yes I did make a meal consisting of hamburgers and potato salad on the condition that I would be able to have a word with them after the meal. The reason being that I had become aware of the fact that three of the girls were living with their boy friends. So after the meal they gave me their careful attention.
I shared with them that my theme was “heaven” and I do not want anyone to miss it. That is why God called me to bring the Word of God to the public schools, and now my concern was for them because some of them were living a life unpleasing to God. So I asked the eldest girl to read 1 Cor. 6:9, 10 which has a list of ungodly acts that will deprive people of heaven if they live in them.
Then I asked them to give me their understanding of some of the labels that are mentioned as acts of unrighteousness in God’s Word such as: Immoral, adulterers, thieves, drunkards, greedy etc. Their understanding seemed to be clear. So I explained to them that if they practiced any of these acts they were danger of going to Hell if they should suddenly die or get killed bearing any one of those labels.
The eldest girl confessed she was living in sin and committed herself to getting married. The next one had tears in her eyes, and the third one was not home at the time. The eldest brother has been concerned about this for some time, so he was very happy to have me share this with them.
I felt humbled to see the brokenness and repentance that seemed to come forward from them. They thanked me for sharing this with them, and the younger one who was living with her boy friend gave me a card that she had made before I got there expressing her love and God’s blessing for me. They also expressed their appreciation for being able to call me their grandfather.
Although this is not the (normal) function of NGM it still is a very important function of the Body of Christ. Some of you have expressed much encouragement re: my contact with the Estevez family, and may the Lord richly bless you for your support by prayer and finances.
Gus, on behalf of NGM.
