Last week my good friend of 23 years died. She was in her 60s. Lourdes and her late husband, as well as their adult son, were/is blind.
Lourdes and Bill were simple people without a lot of money. But they had a ministry that touched so many peoples’ lives. They would attend very small congregations around South Florida. Bill had a glorious voice and Lourdes had a good voice as well. They told me once that they felt that within very small congregations, three additional people could make a difference. And they did!
They encouraged so many young congregational leaders and I just wanted to share with you that wherever you are, you can make a difference. You don’t need special talents or a job in the spotlight. You just need to minister to people where G-d has placed you. Look around you and see what needs there are that you can meet. That is a vital and noble ministry.
For those of you who attended the LoveIsrael.org conference last year, you were introduced to Lourdes and we prayed for her. She has gone to the L-rd now, but I would ask that you please pray for her son and that people would be led to minister to him in the coming years. Thank you!
