Story Group

My head is about to explode with all the posts I want to write, so I'd better get caught up on the past so I can move to the present.

 This post is just for you to get a closer look at some faithful disciples in Arua. Plus, as an added bonus, you can see how much Keira was a distraction for them.

 The guys in the group, especially, all took turns holding her over and over, letting her play with their lips, eyeballs, and anything else in their face she could poke or grab.

 I even have more pictures of different stages of her growth that show them with her as they would come over weekly.

 Sweet, sweet people and friends!

Everyone except Richard, Sunday, and Eric, who arrived later

If you ever think of these faces or names, pray for them to continue to be faithful.

Richard and Taban have been traveling every Saturday to a town north of Arua to minister to people from their home tribe.  They sacrifice a lot to go, but they have continued to be faithful to train a new church plant in the stories that they learned from Doug.

James has been sharing with some motorcycle taxi drivers and others he comes in contact with.

Betty is home with a new baby girl, but she has been faithful to share with her mom, her children, and those that live around her.

All of their names are:  David, Medline, Richard, James, Eric, Sunday, Betty, Muffin, Taban

Where is Truth?

We have a friend who came on Sunday afternoons to learn Truth.

 He always brought his camera, and he asked me to take pictures with his camera and with mine.

 He wanted it well-documented that a Christian took the time to share knowledge and Truth with him.

 He brought his holy book and a list of questions every time.

He also told us what poses to have in each picture.

I LOVE how his face lights up when Truth registers and the light comes on, especially when it's to a question he has had for a long time, and he finally sees the answer in the Word of God.

We really enjoyed our time and conversations with him.  I only wish we had more time.   Pray for his heart as he wrestles with what to do with the Truth he learned.

I hope this is an encouragement for you to talk to people who think and believe differently than you.  And I hope you feel that you can share what you believe with them in a loving way.
