I just finished reading your post from today. I want you to know I will be specifically praying for that time coming when you visit your Grandma and give her the Gospel. Just to encourage you, my Grandpa just passed away. He was a hard old Marine. But God softened his heart and as he laid in ICU and could not do anything but listen, God allowed me to share the Gospel. For the first time, I am confident he got saved. His demeanor and body language and even his ability to respond and understand was amazing. Praise God! I am praying He is preparing your Grandma's heart as well as giving you the strength to share as your heart hurts for her. -Erika www.gospeltoitaly.com
By way of an update, I shared the Gospel with my Grandma "Memo" (photo taken Dec 2006), on Saturday night. She listened, but I think she is still set hard in her ways. However, I just thank God that she was alive and coherent to hear. Which means there is still time for her to repent. Thank you, to all of you who have emailed and commented on my blog. Your prayers for Memo mean a lot!
Thank you Erika for sending me this email! I find it interesting that you and your husband are called to be missionaries in Italy. This blessed my soul because my Memo is 100% Italian (and stuck in her ways). So your email really hit the spot. Thank you for encouraging me with your "hard old Marine" Grandpa--I suppose he was Italian too. :-)
