Subject: Happy Birthday Nelson
Message:
 

Today Jose (a man that works with us) told Mark that today is Nelson's birthday.  We did not write down the date from last year, so I didn't remember.  Faith and Hannah whipped up some cupcakes and we put together some presents.  We had everyone come in and hide to surprise Nelson when he came in.  I think he was shocked!   Nelson has worked for us since early spring last year.  He is an extremely mature young man that needed work to help his family.  He had needed to quit school to help financially.  A local pastor, Pastor Francisco came and asked if we had work for him.  He worked this past year, and then when it was time for school, a family sponsored him so he can go to collegio.  He now comes and works on Saturdays.  This week he is working during the week because school is out for the Day of the Student.  He is such a happy, grateful, and humble young man.  His heart is so kind and he loves the Lord with all his heart.  We are thankful to know such a young man. One of the boys asked him if he would be celebrating in his home this evening.  He shared that they only celebrate the younger children in the family's birthday.  I would believe that this is because of finances.  Please pray with us that Nelson will know the overwhelming love of God, and will know that he has such value and worth. Blessings, Paula
