Letter home

The good news is that the Familia Alzate and the Familia Rincón are with fecha in Agosto and are excited to be baptized, and se we are happy with that. The Lord promises blessings for obedience and for disobedience no blessings. If I am obediente and do everything I can to deserve blessings, I´ll recieve them.

In Ezequiel 20 the ancianos of Israel come to Ezequiel to consult Jehova. In short, God tells them that he´s not going to say them anything because of the idolatries. Then, by Ezequiel he tells them "Cada uno eche de sí las abominaciones de delante de sus ojos, y no os contaminéis con los ídolos de Egipto. Yo soy Jehová vuestro Dios." [Cast ye away every man the abominations of his eyes, and defile not yourselves with the idols of Egypt: I am the Lord your God. Ezekiel 20:7]or if that they would repent and leave their idols, he´d respond them. "Pero ellos se rebelaron contra mí y no quisieron obedecerme; no echó de sí cada uno las abominaciones de delante de sus ojos, ni dejaron los ídolos de Egipto; y dije que derramaría mi ira sobre ellos, para consumar mi enojo contra ellos en medio de la tierra de Egipto." [But they rebelled against me, and would not hearken unto me: they did not every man cast away the abominations of their eyes, neither did they forsake the idols of Egypt: then I said, I will pour out my fury upon them, to accomplish my anger against them in the midst of the land of Egypt.Ezekiel 20:8]or that they brought upon themselves an effectual curse for not wanting to leave their idols. If they would have concentrated themselves in God, they could have received a response. But, as they didn´t want to , they received the promise of destruction.

It´s rough but true. Don´t be destroyed, repent.

Always Great,
