A few folks asked me to update how the Bible study went on Saturday. Jason and I read through the first chapter of “Stranger on the Way to Emmaus.” Of course, it didn’t start there. I spent over 2 hours on Friday night reading it and looking up about 60 words I didn’t know.
We discussed the main points of how to approach reading the Bible, and he was anxious to read the next couple chapters in the book. I have never read this book in Spanish nor English so I’m learning it as I go. We don’t have it in English. So far so good. After a couple hours of discussion we talked another hour or so just to chat. I was glad Jason was so open to conversation as he is very much an introvert.
Kristin who’ll be studying here in the morning with Beth (Tuesday) was very sweet to take little Justin over to a relative’s home a block away and try and give us as much quiet time as she could. They made it back before we finished but we were close to done.
They live in a fairly poor neighborhood and we were interrupted about 4 or 5 times by knocks at the door and people looking to do odd jobs or sell something. This is normal in that neighborhood but Jason commented that this is a more common occurrence this year over last. The recession is hitting Mexico hard.
Well…I’ve got a lot more prepping to do this week to get in two chapters. Keep praying for this Bible study to yield abundant fruit for the glory of God.
