Lara came to Ladies Day on Wednesday at the Family Life Centre. She enjoyed the day and found out about the Bible Studies that happen every Tuesday and Thursday as well. She returned the following day, bringing her friend Tori with her.
Lara cried through much of the Bible study, as we talked of the death of Christ. She said it reminded her of watching the movie ‘The Passion’. She said it frightened her - the suffering Christ had to endure. We shared with her that because of God’s great love for us, Christ suffered so that we would not be separated from God forever. I shared that this kind of love makes me cry, as I do not feel worthy of it and it makes me love my Savior even more. Lara also said that it was so good to be able to talk openly about God and Jesus. This kind of talk is not encouraged in her circle.
Tori has some Biblical knowledge from her past and expressed her gratefulness to us for teaching God’s Word in a way she could understand and interact with the group. They both expressed thankfulness for the food and clothing they could take home.
We share God’s Word with the same women week after week, we watch them mature in their faith and that inspires us. This week, we were given the opportunity to minister to newcomers who soaked up the Word of God like sponges. We are so encouraged in the work of the Lord!
