David Ruiz – Esperanza CDMX Interpreter:
Mexico City is one of the most populated city around the world. People are really sad. People are empty. For that reason I believe that this Festival Esperanza sudada de Mexico comes at the right moment at the right time for the people people is looking for hope. We are obeying God’s will which is the Great Commission to share the gospel in this city.
The father is watching and all of a sudden in the distance, He strains his eyes, he begins to look that’s my son. Runs to his son. He puts his arms around him. He hugs and kisses him. Welcome home.
When he told me the part about the prodigal son, God touched my heart. He was talking about my life. There was a moment where I didn’t even realize I was walking down the aisle. My father was here tonight, waiting for me, with his arms wide open.
God is waiting for us again, with open arms, to clothe us, to forgive us.
I needed to ask God for forgiveness. I forgot about Him. God gave me a second chance.
