Sharing with friends
Kristyna is a 16-year old girl that has been coming to English club for several years. She is a new Christian. I was chatting with her on Facebook the other night and this is what she said.
"Something very strange but very encouraging happened yesterday. I was chatting with my best friend, who had started to believe in God at camp, and then I felt something inside and I knew that God wants me to tell my friends about Him. So this week I have told a lot of my friends about God and Jesus. I have never told them before. It is exciting. I am very glad he is showing me His love and mercy."
Isn't that precious?! It is so exciting that God is speaking not only to her but through her. She came over today and we talked and prayed for her friends. Since sharing her faith, she has found two of her classmates who also believe in God and are trying to follow Him. She was very encouraged!
We had our first English class last night and had 6 people come. We used Matthew 1 as our text and talked about many things from there, i.e. genealogy, dreams. There were no real spiritual questions or discussions. Please pray for this group.
Bridge Community, our church planting effort, is going pretty well. We had several visitors last Sunday! Please pray for more to come and for those who come to really hear. Pray especially for a young man named Tonda.
My Jr. high girls bible study is great. Precious girls! I met with my student helper today and our time together was really nice. Please pray for her. Her name is Joana. Pray that she will grow spiritually and continue to seek God in her life.
We are having lots of new people at Youth Praha, including some Czech kids from camp this summer. Kristyna is also going to come this week. Please pray for her and a boy named Andrew, who has also visited (his parents are in our English class).
Thank you so much for your prayers. I will keep you posted.
