Florencia´s story

IMG_0855This is the story of Florencia. She is a 25 years old lady who participated in the Catholic Church. However, years ago and after her grandmother died, she stopped going to church because she could not understand the will of God. After a while, she started dating a young Lutheran guy and also begins to participate with him in church activities. Then, after a few months she began to show interest to know more about the church and what it teaches about God. So, one member of the evangelism team started to teach her about the gospel, and after this, she expressed her will about making a confession of faith. The pastor of the congregation invited Florencia to do the course “Towards a new life” for her to understand and appreciate the love of God. So, if it is God’s will, in November she will make confession of faith in the Lutheran Church. Florencia today manifests the joy of being here, and says that although God does not allow her to continue the relationship with her boyfriend, however she will continue participating in the Church.
