“The choices Naomi and Ruth make can be seen as a picture of how we can respond to God’s invitation to stay where we are in sin or stake all our future on Him.” Oh how we pray our children will make the choice to stake all on Jesus! Today Stacy talks with our wonderful Moms in Prayer International Regional Coordinator of Honduras, Emilia Frech de Alberto as we continue our Moms in the Bible series. She is here to share on our next Bible mom, a favorite of many, Ruth. Listen in as Emilia encourages us to trust our sovereign God who rules in the midst of uncertain times.
ABOUT OUR GUEST:
Emilia Frech de Alberto has loved to pray since she was very young. For many years, she willingly served with much love and passion as an interpreter for American missionaries living in her country, while she was studying at the University to become an Architect.
After graduating, she strongly felt God's call on her life. Doors of opportunity had opened for her to obtain a degree in Practical Theology from Christ for the Nations in Dallas, TX. After several missionary trips, she returned to her country, Honduras. She began to seek God's purpose for her life as her heart had a yearning to be a blessing to her nation; continued working for many years as a teacher and English coordinator in a Christian School and now working from home at a marketing company, also preparing to become a Certified Translator.
In 2014, she pioneered her first Moms in Prayer group at a Bilingual School where she worked as a Spiritual Counselor. In July 2018, she became Area Coordinator and is now transitioning to serve as Regional Coordinator. She is excited to see how God is answering their prayers; her team-leaders are growing and helping her to extend the ministry in every department of Honduras. Emilia and her husband Alex have three sons, Caleb Elias, Afif Josue and Alex David.
SCRIPTURES: (NIV unless noted)
“Then Boaz said to Ruth, “Now, listen, my daughter, do not go to glean in another field or leave this one, but keep close to my young women. Let your eyes be on the field that they are reaping, and go after them. Have I not charged the young men not to touch you? And when you are thirsty, go to the vessels and drink what the young men have drawn.” Ruth 2:8-9 (ESV)
And now, my daughter, do not fear. I will do for you all that you ask, for all my fellow townsmen know that you are a worthy woman. Ruth 3:11 (ESV)
Then King David went in and sat before the Lord, and he said:“Who am I, Sovereign Lord, and what is my family, that you have brought me this far? 2 Samuel 7:18
When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” Matthew 9:36-38 (ESV)
Now may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen. Hebrews 13:20-21
