Nearly a year ago at our church, we got involved in a program called "Friend Speak." It is a program that teaches conversational English. For the 1st few months, the going was slow. But in recent months, the numbers of people coming have really picked up. And then last night, we were able to witness the new birth of one of our readers. I was brought to tears as one of our members who has been his reading partner spoke of how they had become close friends over the last year.
As I witnessed our brothers baptism last night, I thought back over the last month or so. I don't think there has been a time in which we were meeting for the last 4 or 5 weeks in which we have not been able to witness a new birth. In fact, there have even been a few instances where it was a gathering on a weeknight.
It is an exciting time to be a part of the Decatur Church of Christ. I'm not sure what the Lord is doing, but I sure want to be a part of it! I just pray He will bless me with eyes to be able to see His activity -- and jump into it!
Praise to You, our gracious Father!
