I shared this picture with you this week of Camille and Nicole heading off to school. Camille is from Paris, France and Nicole is from Caracas, Venezuela. They both live in big cities. Living with us is a huge transition for both of them.
Today we are headed to church. Camille went last Sunday but this is Nicole’s first Sunday. She has never been to a protestant church. Never attended worship. Never read scripture.
To be honest, they don’t have a lot of interest in going to church. They don’t understand why we do it. I want to explain it all to them. I want them to understand that knowing and believing in Christ is “life” for us.
But I’m not sure that anything I say will make sense. I could talk to them all day about my love for scripture, and how I want to act and look like Christ but it’s a foreign language to them.
So all I know to do is to “live life” and pray that while they’re here, they will see something different in us. I pray seeds will be planted. I’m begging God to do something in them, that only He can do.
Wayne and I both know, that this is bigger than us. God has them here for a reason and we don’t understand it all. We just want to be faithful.
Would you pray for these two sweet young ladies? Pray that we will be filled with grace, and peace, and mercy, and patience and kindness.
All week, as I’ve listened to them and heard about their lives, this song has kept coming to my mind. This world can be so enticing. But for me, just give me Jesus!
Have a blessed Sunday!
