inside #4/06 - April 2006
During the last week, after the remodeling of our two door garage, the Brunner family finally moved into our house in Buda. Now we can stay all together as a team and this
makes things a lot easier for us. We are grateful for the Lords provision and we look forward to all the exciting things that he
has prepared for us.
Still we can only stay a certain amount of time in this place. For shure we can be here until August, maybe longer. Please keep praying that we will find a permanet place to stay.
Alexander (approx. 45 years of age, name changed) is living for many years as a homeless in Austin.
He is however not a typical homeless person. He takes care of himself and he always wears clean clothes.
This is because has many friends who allow him to spend some nights at their houses. He is a friendly and sensitive man.
We already had a couple of convrsations with him earlier but this time I talked to him straight about Jesus and asked him wheather he
is christian or not. He said that he still has problems believing the gospel. We ended up having a very long and good talk about Jesus. I was
able to answer him a lot of questions and he was very interestet to hear the story of how I met the Lord. Then
I asked him if he would like to give his life to Jesus and his answer was yes. We prayed together and he gave his life to Jesus!
It is really not complicated at all. Jesus makes it so easy for us, because his saving hands are already
stretched out towards us.
As we reported in the last edition of our newsletter "Inside" we made preparations to take in Bobby,
a man who served a nine months sentence and who was about to be released. On the day of his dismissal
our office room was converted into a small nice guest room. As the prison gate was opened we meet a obviously relieved Bobby.
He was very excited
and quite nervous. Hardly in the car he told us of his new plans. He now wanted to go and visit his daughter in
Waco instead of coming with us and living in our house. Further on he wanted to move on to Oklahoma. In addition he also said that he longs
to have a little time particularly for himself since he spent the last nine months with 54 other men in one room.
Although we had great understanding for his situation we had to fight some disappointment. Despite our effort to talk to him he wouldn't
change his intentions. We spent all day long to buy new clothes and shoes for him and take care of some bussines.
We had a very good time. Before we went apart we prayed for him and Bobby insured us that he would call us right on the next day.
But unfortunately he didn't and we didn't hear anythings from him ever since. We pray that God continues to change his heart and that
He would watch over him. We really believe that Bobby accepted Jesus into his heart and that he loves Him.
But he must allow the power of the cross to fully break through in his life.
Update mobile home
Through an e-mail with a special prayer request, a couple weeks ago, we asked you for your prayers for a mobile home. Until now we
haven't heard anything from that dealer. But we will keep on praying and ask God for a miracle in that case.
Thank you for all your prayers and encouragement.
