Anna, Levi, and Kianna (Kenny's daughter).
In my last post over two weeks ago now, I asked for prayer for a couple who have been coming to La Roca church. We faced a difficult topic with them of living together before they were married. We are pleased by their response of let God be God. After our conversation they went home and discussed what they should do. The made a commitment to not be sexually intimate until they were "properly married" before God. Now comes the test. That night they started making the changes they felt were necessary to get them right standing with God. Alonzo has three kids ages 8, 10, and 13, I believe and Kenny has one daughter age 3. So that night, Alonzo started sleeping in the bedroom with his kids and Kenny in a different room with her daughter. In the last two weeks, Alonzo started to sleep at his mom and dad's house, while Kenny stays with the kids. When they made this decision, they did not take it lightly. Alonzo, has been separated from his wife for over five years (who was unfaithful to him). He had tried to divorce her several times but was unable to come to any agreement with money and a house they owned together. After Kenny and Alonzo decided to start making the steps towards living pure in the eyes of the Lord, Alonzo's wife came to Autlan, to discuss the kids. After their conversation, Alonzo's wife, is now going to live in Autlan, which is amazing as she was living in a different state of Mexico for the pass 5 years. Just from what we have seen so far, it seems that things are lining up for Alonzo and Kenny. To actually accomplish a divorce here takes lots of paperwork and time. With Alonzo's wife being here, the process will be much shorter. We are amazed at what God is doing in their lives. As a side note, to give you an idea of where Alonzo is at, with the Lord. When they came over the other day to tells us some of the latest news, Alonzo was worried about the future. Jessie shared with him the scripture about not worrying about tomorrow and how if we are obedient to what God tells us to do, it will all work for God's glory. He responded "it actually says that in the bible? That I am not suppose to worry about tomorrow? Is this true (looking at Kenny)?" She said yes it does. "Well, then that is what I am going to do." He takes the truth and just receives it. It is cool see this happen. Some of the next steps him are to discuss baptism what it means as a follower of Christ. We are so blessed!
