"My wife and I are merchants by trade," says Vincent. "The Lord called us to provide God's Word throughout our village, but we suffered great financial hardship because Bibles are very expensive here in Mexico."
Vincent and Gloria prayed for wisdom and the provision of God's Word. "Eventually we traveled to a Christian bookstore, and pleaded, ‘Why do you charge so much for Bibles?' They answered, ‘Business is business.'" Although hesitant, Vincent and Gloria purchased Bibles from the store for a short time.
"When we could no longer afford Bibles, our hearts filled with sorrow," says Vincent. "We sobbed and embraced each other."
God hears our prayers
Then God intervened! A Christian trained by Bible League International saw the crying couple on the street. "He asked about our trouble," continues Vincent, "and explained that he was on his way to the Bible League office, and he could help meet our need. It was then we knew God heard our prayers!"
Soon, Vincent and Gloria received training, and began leading Bible studies throughout their village—providing God's Word to more people than they ever imagined!
Just as their lives began producing spiritual fruit, Vincent suddenly fell into a coma. Medical specialists gave him little hope for survival, yet Gloria remained by his side in prayer—standing strong in her faith just as she learned from God's Word.
Then a miracle happened. "After three days I fully recovered!" exclaims Vincent. "And today, after many prayers, Gloria is pregnant with our family heir!" Vincent and Gloria are thankful to be servants of God. Their village is being transformed by the power of His Word.
