One young woman we met with comes from a country were Christianity is not well known. Her presence in our Bible studies and community has been a source of great joy. We've been blessed to be able to explain the good news of Jesus to her and on one occasion to pray for her for healing. Watching her explore the Christian faith with a fresh perspective and honest questions has been a blessing for the whole community.
Earlier this semester we were studying the passage where Jesus gives the two great commandments and tells us to love our neighbor as ourselves. Bringing the perspective of an international student and someone who hadn't read Luke 10, she asks, "So, who is my neighbor?" We all smiled at her and we able to say "Jesus has an answer to that."
