During one of my last days in an eastern city, I had a special time with a young lady named Mary*. Most people who come into the historic church building in which I was serving are in a group, want to take pictures, and are somewhat interested about the history of the building. Mary was different, though.
I was sitting down reading my Bible when she came in alone. Noticing what I was doing, Mary asked to see my Bible. We ended up talking for over an hour and reading Scripture together, mostly in response to her questions and thoughts.
I am thankful for her genuine interest in the Scriptures and pray that God would use her reading to bring her to saving faith in Jesus. Would you join me in praying for Mary?
