–A Hispanic woman and her three daughters have started attending Ethnos. She accepted Christ in January. Shortly after that she heard a testimony at Ethnos of a woman who lost her husband several years ago and how God has been faithful and close to her. The woman lost her uncle the next day and said that because of hearing that testimony she is able to trust that God will take care of her and her family.
