Big Fruit

Tina and I visited the home of church members Miguel and Anna Nieves, a couple who live up in
the mountain town of Aguas Buenas. They invited all of the church to their home for a time of fellowship.

Before lunch, we got a tour of their 5 acre mountain property. I was impressed at the great variety of fruit trees and especially by the great size they were able to grow them.

There were some magnificent papaya trees; one had papayas weighing from 12 to 15 pounds.

We have tried to grow them a couple of times, but without success. In the home of Miguel and Anna, they are springing up all over the place and are producing amazing fruit.

It goes to show you, that planted in the right place, and cared for in the right manner, the ordinary can become extraordinary.

I hope our churches can provide just such a place for believers here in Puerto Rico.

I know our church has been blessed by this family. We are grateful for the spiritual fruit that they have produced in our church that has benefitted so many.
