Stories from the Field: Natalia

Uruguay Encounters Ministries

God is my everything. My Friend, my Father, my unconditional Helper—my Strength. He is the source of unending love in my life.

I have experienced His love in many ways. The first time I recall is when my newborn daughter was being transferred to an intensive care unit at a hospital in another country. The outcome did not look good. But my husband and I felt like God was with us, even though we were separated from her. I didn’t doubt for a second that she would recover. God was in the middle of that situation.

In the past, whenever I have seen people do wrong things, I have had trouble seeing them through God’s eyes of love. Especially people who hurt others, or who have hurt me. I have learned to forgive them and rid myself of a victim mentality—to love and forgive them and let go of the pain. It’s been a process. But seeing people who demonstrate Christ’s love is what has changed me the most.

We live in quite a secular country, and it is not easy to be a Christian here. Religion is looked upon as a weakness, considered unintelligent. My hope is that other women will have the opportunity to have a personal relationship with God and experience something as wonderful as I have.

Pray for Alliance workers in Uruguay. They have created Encounters Ministries, designed to create gospel access for women in Uruguay. One Encounter retreat can be as effective as a whole year of meetings.

We welcome your financial support of this project. Giving instructions can be found here.
