Our first child to pass away at Casa was Susie, a 15 years old girl, killed  by her father.  I remember her salvation as though it were yesterday. We were attending services at our church in Chimaltenango. The place was packed and so we set up chairs in the back of the church for our children. All through the service she twisted and turned. When the invitation was given she was moving and swaying. I walked to her and said “Susie, if you want to go forward I will go with you”.

She responded immediately and the pastor led her to Jesus. The following Saturday we celebrated her 15th birthday, quinceanera, and the folioing sunday she as baptized. By the following Sunday she was dead.   I think of her often. Her older sister, Olga, named her first child, Susie, and his Susie lives here with Dottie and me as well as her younger brother Michael.

But what I want to say to you is this “Do not hesitate. If you feel the touch of God in any way–obey immediately”. I remember I did not have doubts at all in 1989 until I arrived at the border of Guatemala. Had I had those doubts in Lake Charles we may never have come to Guatemala.
