"Spanish Mary Books" Distributed South-of-the-Border! - (Continued)
It was about 170 miles from Hermosillo to Nogales. We reached Nogales sometime past midnight of course. We grabbed the cheapest motel in town and prepared for bed. It did not take us long to find out that we were just across the street from the police station and the fire station, as we heard the first fire truck and its siren squealing down the street. "There could not have been a worse time for it to be so busy," we thought as we heard one siren afer another. The fire station had to sound their piercing, scary alarm several times as well. We tried to get some sleep amid all of that.
"The next morning after breakfast we set off to distribute whatever literature we had left. Bill, Sherry and Sarah went on ahead of us and winged out the rest of the literature they had and then headed on and crossed the border, hoping to make some headway onto San Diego before Sabbath. Our family decided to go downtown and distribute some of the literature. After that, we did some more residential areas with whatever else we had left. As we climbed up the dirt road hills of Nogales with the little literature we had left, we were wishing we had more. We were already thinking about returning back there and distributing more at a future date. We noticed that there were more of those Virgin Mary shrines in that town than in all the other towns. We crossed the border back into the U.S. after we ran out of literature. We were hoping to make headway going back before Sabbath but that did not happen. We made it just past the border, which is Nogales, Arizona. We grabbed a motel in town and spent Friday night there. We also distributed all that was left of the English-Spanish Earth's Final Warning from Eternal Gospel Church in that town. Most of the people there were Spanish-speaking as well.
Sabbath morning, after breakfast, we went to a lake, which was a couple of miles away from where we stayed. There we had a restful and quiet Sabbath for relaxation and study. By the quiet and beautiful lake, we sat down and rested and praised the Lord for the privilege and opportunity that was given us to go to Mexico and share the message to those who have never heard the truth. Joy filled our hearts with the thought that about 11,000 people in Mexico now have the opportunity to know and receive God's last message of warning to the world. We recounted the blessings received throughout the whole trip, and how our 1978 Dodge van, old as it is with almost 200,000 miles on the engine, did not give us any problems at all. We recalled how we were saved from sickness, though some of the kids did get a touch of a stomach flu or something like that, but, praise the Lord for charcoal and the knowledge of natural remedies, as the plague was stayed. Of course, we cannot forget how we were saved from accident and maybe even death. We can't help but praise the Lord all the day long especially for letting us enjoy His creation on that nice Sabbath day wherein to recount all the evidences of His love for us.
Brothers and sisters, we all have a part to act in reaching out to a dying world. Time is running out and things are not looking good now, with all the political unrest, calamities, wickedness teeming everywhere, all telling us that what we have to do, we have to do now! Let us all work together in hastening the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. This world is getting old and we are not getting any younger either. Let us all do the work of getting our lives in order and in reaching out to a dying world before many more dear souls will die without a knowledge of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour.
"Christ is waiting with longing desire for the manifestation of Himself in His church. When the character of Christ shall be perfectly reproduced in His people, then He will come to claim then as His own. It is the privilege of every Christian not only to look for but to hasten the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Were all who profess His name bearing fruit to His glory, how quickly the whole world would be sown with the seed of the gospel. Quickly the last great harvest would be ripened, and Christ would come to gather the precious grain." Christ's Object Lessons, p. 69
"And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come." Matthew 24:14
