Later I found out later that Bernardo was an illegal living in Oregon, was caught up with and placed into prison. He was then sent to Honduras where he was imprisoned there. He had just gotten out of prison and his mother asked him to be our interpreter, where he agreed to this. He was a trained Muslim who also left a daughter in Oregon. He told me later that every time he led someone to receive Jesus Christ in the prison he himself was also receiving Jesus. Bernardo also interpreted for the pastor training for 2 ½ days, where the word of the Lord went into him in a powerful way. When we left I gave him my jacket which was to him a memorial to his salvation experience.
In January 2014 as we went down he again was our interpreter, he had joined Dario in the ministry there leading XMA teams up into the mountains to show the Jesus film. He has a desire to attend Bible school and become a pastor. It was good being with him and seeing the grace of God at work in his life.
