Praise God we had a great Christmas service with our church! Our normal attendance is about 30 people, but for our special evangelistic service we had about 80 people join us!
My friend and I went shopping in a nearby area. On our walk back home, we decided to stop by an antique shop near our home. As we were about to leave, the owner of the souvenir shop told me that he had two big bags of children’s clothes that he wanted to donate.
I have a friend, Ahmad, with whom I’ve tried to share the gospel a number of times, but he would never let me really get a word in edgewise. He rarely listened at all to what I had to say.
My teacher, Sophie*, and I like going on visits together, and last month we visited extended family members of hers twice. The first visit was with a sister-in-law with three young children and a bedridden mother living with her.
I met Delia* about a year ago at the bus stop near my home. When I gave her an SD card with Christian resources, she was opposed at first. But, she has since become more and more open.
A few months ago, while eating with another missionary and a local brother, we started talking with our waiter, Muhammed. He is a master’s student at the university here and is Turkmen. We have been praying for the Turkmen people, as they are on our unreached unengaged people group (UUPG) list.
