In the past few weeks, my uncle has been making friends with our mailman. He discovered that our mailman's first wife was a Christian, and when she died he married a woman who is Muslim by tradition, though not in practice. He is very open to discussion of Christianity, and has many questions about our faith. His fifteen-year-old neice has been living with him and his wife for the past few years. Two Sundays ago, they came to church with us. They both enjoyed it, and would like to continue coming. I was also able to spend some time at their house last week, to help the girl with English homework and to get to know her and her aunt. She speaks only a little English, and her aunt speaks none at all, so trying to communicate is often very comical. But both of them are very kind and welcoming, and I enjoyed the time I spent with them. My friend and I plan to continue spending time together, and I am praying that she will keep coming to church with me. Please pray that she and I would be able to develop a good friendship, and that she would come to know the Lord.
