Beautiful Feet

"How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!" Romans 10:15
(Francinaldo was thinking of this verse when he took this picture of his feet.)
    Ever since Francinaldo and Ivani became Christians, they have wanted to share their new life in Christ with their loved ones in their hometowns (10 hour bus trips from João Pessoa in different directions).
    Before, their yearly visits would be just to see family and party, but now they go on a mission: to see as many people and share as much of Christ as possible in a short weekend.
    One month ago they traveled to Fortaleza, where Francinaldo grew up. Instead of being received as a prophet without honor in his hometown, the reception was one of admiration at the changes in Francinaldo's life. They handed out tracts, Bibles, studies. Francinaldo sought out a girl he used to tease cruelly as a child and asked forgiveness. Even his mother, whose heart is closed to religion, seems to be opening up and is asking questions.
    Then a couple of weeks later they spent the weekend in Ivani's hometown, Diamante, and did the same things.
    So little time, so little contact but they don't want to miss any opportunity as small as it may be to introduce their families to Jesus.
