Saul Restored

One of our volunteers sharing with Saul
While our worship team was playing at the Maria Hernandez Park in Brooklyn, a Hispanic man named Saul approached one of our volunteers and asked for prayer. Up until few weeks prior to this, Saul was actively involved in his Church, but some changes in the Church led him to feel betrayed by his pastor. His hurt turned to anger - first toward the Church and then toward God. One bad decision led to another and he ended up on the streets filled with guilt that he had “stabbed Jesus in the back”. We reassured Saul that he could not “out sin” God’s grace. We shared with him the story of Peter and how he betrayed Jesus three times and yet Jesus still went to the cross to pay for his sins. God’s grace began to overwhelm him and he sat there weeping as he confessed his sins. Saul wanted to change and start over again.

Thankfully, we were able to get him into a Spanish Church that would disciple him and give him food with a place to stay until he was able to get back up on his feet. Saul has been in there for several weeks now and is doing great! He's actively involved with the Church and is beginning to find work around town. It is so exciting to see the way Saul has been restored. Praise God for His love and His faithfulness that never ends!
