Luis invited us to his 27th birthday party on Thursday. It was a little odd in that adult birthdays are not normally celebrated but we got dressed and went anyway. When we arrived Luis asked Shannon if he was ready to preach. He said that the purpose in him having a party was to share Christ with his family. Luis grew up Catholic and his family was not excited about him accepting Christ 3 years ago. Most of his family is still Catholic although they have accepted him. This party was one of the first times that I have seen a Honduran go out of their way to shared Christ. Normally, God is someone who gives things or provides but Luis was wanting to share God. It is cool to see the growth in him and to watch the slow spiritual maturity taking place. And so, Shannon preached to 48 of Luis’s closest family members. Since he is one of 10 children this was not his extended family but it was his immediate family. How many of us, take time out of our lives to speak to our family about God and risk their ridicule? When was the last time you shared Christ with your non-believing family?
