Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life. (John 4:13-14)

Cousins

I have a cousin that is no more than 9 days older than me. We shared so much in our childhood.

He recently contacted me along with his father for a family reunion.

I am Portuguese with a huge extended family. My grandfather is one of 12, and all his brothers and sisters had children, who have had children, who have had children, and in some cases, who have had children. My 2cd cousin has done a huge geneological survey and it has been very interesting.

Most are not saved. Being odd man out at family functions is quite odd.

I love my family and want them to be saved.

Sometimes family is the hardest group to whom to witness. We'll pray for them.

I'm wondering if you speak both Portuguese and Spanish, so maybe mention that sometime.

I'll pray.

I am honestly not trying to start an argument. I'm just trying to understand your beliefs better, but when you say, "most are not saved," do you mean that most do not believe in God? Just a question. Not a start to a debate.

Hey Antonio, family reunions are always a difficult time to share your faith. Many blessings and much anointing upon your words.

God bless,
Jim
