A free gift
A good gift is never free. I want to thank those who have given, paid the price so that I could be the one to give a gift to those around me.
Salvation itself is not free either. I believe when we promote it as a free gift, we lessen the value of it. When we talk about the price that was paid for our salvation, our converts are more likely to appreciate what they have.
The people know the price of the repellent that I have been handing out, and they have been thankful for it. My prayer is that they learn about another gift that cost much more than a bottle of repellent.

The viral fight
Thankfully, the government has asked help from Argentina and the US. People are dying from this disease. Some have gotten it for the first time, lay in a hospital bed and died, according to the newspaper -which is not completely reliable always. At any rate, We trust that there is a God who is bigger than a viral infection. He is ultimately in control over all diseases, and epidemic diseases. In His time, he will take the disease away. For us, this is an opportunity to serve others, and plant seed to start new works in the furture.
