Heartbroken

Today when teaching the ladies in the compound they told me that about 2-3 days after we(me, Zach, and Megan) visited an old man in the compound he died. Evidently, he had a candle lit and when he got up he knocked it over and then fell in the fire. I am so heartbroken! So glad we could pray for him and give him some food which would have lasted his last couple of days but beating myself up for not witnessing to him that day. We never know how much time someone has left! Sure hoping he was a believer!

But before people can ask the Lord for help, they must believe in him; and before they can believe in him, they must hear about him; and for them to hear about the Lord, someone must tell them.  Romans 10:14 

Lord, help me to be more faithful with sharing my faith with the hurting and lost people you bring into my life.  Helping them and doing good things for them are important but without giving them a chance to receive You and have the hope of eternal life it is all in vain.
