On the contrary, “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him a drink. For in so doing, you will heap burning coals on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Romans 12:20-21
I know in my heart that there is something truly special with the women in Venezuela. I want to share in this praise report that as we were anticipating the arrival of all the donations (we had prepared for the many ladies in Venezuela), RBG and RMI were hit with a blow. The leader of Pearls of Grace, a ministry that branched from RBG, had attacked Vero and RMI with a warning letter that was sent some time ago to the members of RMI. I have to say it was very difficult for Vero but through it all, our HH has shown His heart and His grace.
Although many in Venezuela wanted to take all the donations and give it to what they considered “deserving” families (due to the widespread and desperate needs), I assured Vero that what He wanted was to GIVE to our enemies. What confirmed this was His plan was Erin’s response when we told her what had happened, and the fact that every item was accounted for BY NAME! HE wanted us to live out Romans 12:20-21 in LOVE and bless every woman, no matter the insults and rejection they had for us.
“Most gladly therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may dwell in me. Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ’s sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong” (Phil. 12:9–10)
…For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome, because everyone born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world: our faith. Who then overcomes the world? Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.… 1John 5:3-5
We were able to give away EVERY item sent to the appointed person— and to show His faithfulness two women rose above the rumors and remained faithful to RBG and RMI. The first is Dulce, who started here with RMI and then was introduced to the groups in Venezuela. She now has over 20 women in her group and here is her praise report:
Beloved, our HH is faithful, and He is doing wonders in Venezuela.
I feel very excited to write this PR because, after a great storm that has struck against the Ministry in Venezuela, His love rescued us and gave us hope when we believed that everything was lost.
By asking Him: “Beloved, what do you want me to write? He immediately reminded me of lesson 1 of Wise Woman ‘On the Rock’.”
“Therefore, everyone who hears these words and puts them into practice is like a prudent man who built his house on the rock. The rains fell, the rivers grew, and the winds blew and whipped that house; yet, the house did not collapse because it was laid on the rock “Matthew 7: 24-25.
Only by His grace, we were not devastated, He sustained us with His love and carried us into His arms because if I am completely honest I couldn’t anymore, and only wanted to flee from that which plagued the Ministry.
Another word that He reminded me was that He creates calamity, and in the midst of all that we thought was the enemy; but it was not until in that disastrous situation we realized that His plan was to show us how to bless with a heart full of His love to our enemies, we also learned obedience, and He blessed us much more than we expected.
“I am the Lord, and there is no other. I form the light and create darkness, bring well-being and create calamity; I, the Lord, do all these things.” Distill, heavens, from above! Clouds, rain justice! Let the earth open wide! Let salvation sprout! Let justice grow with it! I, the Lord, have created it “(Isa. 45: 6-7)
Wow, He certainly sprang salvation, it rained justice. We are grateful !! He orchestrated all to fulfill His Will and for His Name to be glorified.
The Good News is that He in His love reserved a remnant to continue growing and expanding in this beautiful country. We are currently ministering to two groups of Women who with willing hearts want to continue their Restoration Journey. For a total of 30!!
Arelis is the only leader from Pearls of Grace that has remained with us! Our beloved was faithful to guide and set her apart! Now there are 20 women in her WhatsApp group and they also meet once a week in a local rural area to share the books— they only have one of each version! Here is her PR:
Glory be to Christ, thanks to Our HH who is faithful who knows our hearts and who never released us from His wonderful hand.
Yesterday in my heart there was a lot of emotion and today more in feeling that our HH is faithful and His mercies are forever… In writing this PR the Lord took me to His word that says if someone attacks you it will not be from Him that anyone who attacks you will fall before you Isaiah 54:15 and no soul will prevail against you. Isaiah 54:17
With His love, He rescued us and did not allow any weapon to prevail against our Ministry of Restored by Grace of Venezuela.
Today I continue to glorify the name of Christ for His wonders and for Blessing these two groups of women that every week we meet to speak of His word, thanks to this Ministry of Restoration to continue with us on this wonderful journey of restoration, as we continue growing and bringing his Word to every woman who has no hope, thank you for believing in this faithful remnant.
THOUSAND BLESSINGS ❤❤❤
Ladies He is faithful and we have grown stronger and with the love of our HH that bursts light into this dark world.
In Him was life, and that life was the light of men. The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. John 1:4-5
to open their eyes, so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those sanctified by faith in Me.’ Acts 26:18
We have OVERCOME with HIS LOVE and I know HE will continue to awe us with His showers of blessings!!
