She Needed Comfort & Truth

A few days ago, we got a call from a lady who we’ll call Rosa. Rosa lives in Reno and recently she had to cancel her cable TV to save money. As she was scanning her local over-the-air channels to see what was available for free she providentially stumbled upon Vida Mejor TV! 

Rosa told us that she has been watching for three months now and the station has been a big blessing to her. You see, Rosa has had a difficult life. Fourteen years ago she lost her husband. Four years ago she lost her son. And about a year ago one of her daughters was killed. Rosa said that as she began watching Vida Mejor TV it seemed like many of the programs were talking about the comfort that God brings to our life and the hope of seeing our loved ones again at the resurrection. This was very comforting to her.

She also began to learn that the church she had been attending was not teaching all the things they should be. As she watched a program on Revelation she came to see that we are living in the last days. 

The reason that Rosa called us was to find out the address of a local Adventist church in her area. She wanted a church that taught the same things she was learning from her TV. We were happy to find that there was a Spanish Adventist church only about five blocks away! Although she told us that Vida Mejor TV is her spiritual food, we were happy to hear that she wanted to join others in worship too!

At the end of our conversation we asked if we could pray with her. She agreed, but before we could start she called for her twelve year old granddaughter to come over and join us. During the prayer we could hear the young person respond with words like, “Yes, Jesus!” which was so sweet.

Rosa told us, “Every time I watch Vida Mejor the programs speak to me!” 

We are working with the local church to begin Bible studies with Rosa and she is excited.

Thank you for helping Better Life continue to broadcast to souls like Rosa who are searching for hope and comfort.
