Hey Friends! Greetings from the land of amazing tofu and people! God has been crazy on the move here! Last week, my friends and I here learned how to share the message with our Asian friends. Since then, we have seen 3 girls come into the family!!!!!!!!!
Let me tell you the story of the first girl of this year who came into the fam. Without the intention of going out to share the first day, my partner and I spent it practicing and praying. As it got further into the evening we grew antsy, so we decided to go out onto campus, just to make friends. Little did we know, God had something planned for us. We get to campus and the only students around are those who are in the library studying for classes that haven’t even started yet. So, we decide to check out the cafe but the menu is all in Asian! Two girls see us struggling to use our Google translate app, so they start to inch closer to us but apprehensively stop themselves. So, we go over to them, and well two coffee milk teas later, Merah and I have a new sister!
Our new sister was so captured by what God has done for us. Her eyes lit up and she leaned in, hungry to hear more, as we shared with her the best news there is. When we asked her if she wanted to start a relationship with God, immediately she said, YES! So excited, and beaming with joy, we prayed with her for the first time. We asked her how she felt afterwards; she felt respect and love for God!
So, we started our day not knowing how to share the message of God and then end our day with an unexpected new sister! He never ceases to surprise me in the ways He speaks to peoples’ hearts, setting up interactions and encounters that we could never plan ourselves. Would you be lifting up our new sister that her decision be grounded in faith and her new relationship with God be built on a solid foundation? Also for the Holy Spirit to be moving as my friends and I continue to go out and share with our Asian friends.
