UNITED STATES — I am originally from El Salvador and have been listening to you since I was a child. My parents always listened to the program … around 1974. I was raised listening to these wonderful teachings.

Because of the war, I left the country when I was only an adolescent. I have been living in the U.S. for more than 20 years. To my great surprise, one day I was listening to Radio Nueva Vida here in California and heard the program A Través de la Biblia (Thru the Bible in Spanish). It gave me such joy and pleasure.

Even more surprising was when I was working for Los Angeles County in a home for the aged and one of my patients was listening to Radio Nueva Vida at 9 a.m. It was a great surprise for me. There was A Través de la Biblia. I said in my heart, “Glory to God.”

Since that time, I became aware of your email address. A lady gave me a study guide in which I found your address. Now I can write and give thanks to God for this.

A few months ago in my church, I was given the responsibility of teaching the youth, and I really want to teach them. For this reason, I would appreciate your sending me the Bible studies. I would like to receive them by email. …

May God continue to bless you.
