Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless HIS HOLY NAME.

Dad and Mom López

In November, my father-in-law, Gregorio López, passed away. He is now with his Lord, whom he loved and served faithfully for about 60 years.

Dad López was a Ch'ol Indian who was saved at the age of 16, and whom God used to help translate the Holy Bible in the Ch'ol dialect. His story is an amazing one, which speaks of the grace of God.

In a future post, I will share with you Dad López's testimony and the blessing that he was to many, including his American daughter-in-law.

Tomorrow, my husband and I and our children are going to visit Mom López in the village where she lives. It is always a blessing to spend time with this sweet Christian lady who was such a faithful helpmeet to Dad López.

In the 8 years I have been married, every single time we have gone to the small Indian village where Mom López lives, we have always had exciting experiences. I ask that you please pray for our safety, both in our travels as well as in our stay there. My prayer is that I would be a blessing and an encouragement to my dear mother-in-law, as she always is to me.
