Suffering & Sovereignty with Maritza Gutierrez-Rey | EP. 10

Suffering & Sovereignty with Maritza Gutierrez-Rey | EP. 10

Episode 10

On today’s episode, we have the pleasure of talking with Maritza Gutierrez-Rey. She is a sweet sister in Christ and active member of Sojourn Community Church – Woodstock alongside Joanna. She is a widow and joyful mama of five adult children (plus one in heaven). She is a busy bee working as a defect and production manager at AT&T, a Chaplain for Marketplace Chaplains, and an employee at a yarn shop (where she also teaches others how to knit). She shares her incredibly somber story of unexpectedly losing one of her children in a tragic accident. Then a few years later, she unexpectedly lost her husband to a massive heart attack due to an unknown heart condition. But through it all, those who know Maritza will describe her as joyful. This is a powerful testimony of our great God who makes beauty from ashes (Isa. 61:3). He is completely sovereign and completely good. May her story encourage us by pointing to the unchanging nature of our God. We are grateful for her vulnerability and willingness to share her story, and in response, may we worship our God for who He is.
