We were very excited to host our first Bible Study in our home for some of Thomas' students. We had about 7 kids total. The kids came over after school and we cooked some supper and got to spend some time with the kids just talking about different things. One of the coolest things was that we were able to speak with Rifat for quite a while. Rifat is a Muslim student from Bangladesh. He had several questions about life and especially about marriage and love. He comes from a family where his parent's marriage was arranged and so he was very interested in how we met and "decided" that we were in love. It was a special thing for us to recall our dating years and tell him about how God used all sorts of circumstances to bring us to each other.
The Bible study went really well. We are discussing the idea of an abundant life through a study of the book of Daniel. The kids are really interested in all of the History and prophecy that Thomas has been teaching them about.
We are really excited about this group. Please pray that this will be a study that would encourage these kids to live their lives in a way that makes them available to be used by God.
