My Hero and Partner
by Carlos Ingles
To share the gospel you need to speak without fear, which is what Margarita does. I have been blessed recently with the company of this sister, who is 82 years old but whose evangelistic spirit is young. She is very active, eloquent, and sharp-minded, and a true hero of the faith. She comes to Impact to serve every Monday and Tuesday to fill bags of food for people in need, sometimes even paying for an Uber ride to get here! We have also recently been visiting people who have needs, like taking food to elderly shut-ins.
Lately Margarita has been going on Tuesday morning to visit different families to share the gospel with them. She has made relationships with two of her neighbors, who we have now visited in order to preach the gospel. Because she lives in an apartment complex, many people know her. In fact, starting in May we are planning to start a Bible study group in the house of one Margarita’s neighbors. Margarita is very good at inviting people but also knows the Bible very well and enjoys participating in the Bible studies.
Margarita is a dear friend of mine and my family loves her, my son Caleb even calls her “Grandma.” My spiritual connection with Margarita is great also, we love each other and we share a passion for sharing the good news of Jesus. We currently are studying with two ladies, one of them being Thelma, a cancer patient. I thank God that with her help I have been able to initiate new bible studies, and feel very blessed to have such a partner. Please pray for our efforts!
