Testimony of Roberto Carlos Ayuy Sharupi

April 2006

MY NAME IS ROBERTO CARLOS AYUY SHARUPI.  I AM 16 YEARS OLD AND I HAVE AN
IDENTICAL TWIN BROTHER NAMED ADOLFO ANDRES.  I WAS BORN IN ARAJUNO, ECUADOR,
SOUTH AMERICA IN THE JUNGLE.  I DON’T REMEMBER MUCH ABOUT MY FATHER BECAUSE HE
DIED WHEN I WAS REALLY YOUNG.  I WAS ABANDONED BY MY MOTHER WHEN I WAS 8 MONTHS
OLD AND UP TO NOW I DON’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT HER.  MY LIFE WAS VERY HARD AND I
DIDN’T KNOW WHO REALLY LOVED ME.  WELL, I SUFFERED A LOT BECAUSE MY FAMILY
DIDN’T WANT TO SEE ME OR GIVE ME ANY THING TO EAT AND DIDN’T WANT ME TO GO
VISIT THEM.  WHEN I WAS 6 YEARS OLD I WENT TO LIVE WITH A FAMILY  IN THE LITTLE
TOWN OF SHELL.  I WAS SEPARATED FROM MY TWIN BROTHER FOR SEVERAL YEARS.  WHEN
WE WERE 10 YEARS OLD MY TWIN ALSO CAME TO LIVE IN SHELL AND WE WERE IN CONTACT
AGAIN.  ULTIMATELY I CAME TO LIVE WITH THE SAME FAMILY, THE DOCTOR AND HIS
WIFE

MY MEETING WITH THE LORD WAS IN THE JUNGLE WHEN MY BROTHER, ANDRES, TOLD ME
ABOUT THE LOVE OF GOD.   IT MADE ME THINK AND I THOUGHT ABOUT HOW GOD LOVES ME.
AFTER A FEW DAYS, I REALIZED THAT I WAS A SINNER.  I REPENTED AND RECEIVED THE
LORD IN MY HEART AS MY PERSONAL SAVIOR.  THANKS TO HIM, I HAVE A VERY HAPPY
LIFE BECAUSE CHRIST LOVES ME SO MUCH.

ONCE, LATER ON, I WAS IN THE JUNGLE AND I WAS OVERCOME WITH A TREMENDOUS FEAR
AND WAS SHAKING ALL OVER.  I BEGAN TO THINK ABOUT HOW THE LORD WAS WITH ME AND
THAT I AM NEVER ALONE.  I BEGAN TO PRAY TO THE LORD TO TAKE AWAY THIS FEAR AND
THEN I FELT SOMETHING LIKE A WIND THAT FLOWED OVER ME FROM MY HEAD TO MY
FEET–GIVING ME COMPLETE RELIEF.  AFTERWARDS I FELT NO FEAR AND SAID, “THANK
YOU, LORD, FOR YOUR LOVE.”   LATER, I TOLD MY SISTER BUT SHE DIDN’T BELIEVE ME.
I AM SO HAPPY FOR THIS GREAT LOVE OF GOD.
THE FIRST PART OF 2005 I SPENT A LOT OF TIME SHARING THE WORD OF GOD WITH KIDS
AND ADULTS IN THE COMMUNITY  AND PRAYING WITH THEM.  I AM VERY CONTENTED TO
HAVE HAD THIS OPPORTUNITY.  IN THE PAST MONTHS WE HAVE GONE THROUGH MANY
DIFFICULT TRIALS.  THANKS TO GOD THAT THROUGH  HIS LOVE AND HELP WE ARE MORE
THAN CONQUERORS.  IN THE FUTURE I WANT TO PREACH THE WORD OF GOD AND DO HIS
WILL.

THANKS TO ALL OF YOU FOR YOUR PRAYERS.  CONTINUE GOING FORWARD WITH THE LORD
AND ONE DAY WE WILL MEET IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

GREETINGS TO ALL OF YOU,
YOUR BROTHER IN CHRIST,  ROBERTO AYUY

 

 

 

Testimonio of Roberto Carlos Ayuy Sharupi

April 2006

Mi nombre es Roberto Carlos Ayuy Sharupi. Yo tengo 16 años y
tengo un gemelo quien se llama Adolfo Andrés. Yo nací en Arajuno,
Ecuador, Sud-América en la selva. A mi padre no le recuerdo bien porque el
falleció cuando estaba pequeño. Fui abandonado por mi madre cuando tenía ocho
meses y hasta ahora no sé nada de ella. Mi vida fue muy difícil y no sabía quien
me amaba realmente. Bueno, sufrí mucho porque mi familia no quería verme
o darme de comer y no querían que les visitara. Cuando tenía seis años
me fui a vivir con una familia en el pueblito de Shell.
Estuve lejos de mi hermano gemelo por unos años. Cuando teníamos 10 años mí
gemelo vino a vivir también en Shell y estubimos en contacto otra vez.
Finalmente, vine a vivir con él en la misma familia: con el doctor y su esposa.
