As Americans, we attract tons of attention everywhere we go. It can get pretty annoying at times to have everyone staring at you. But the Father has been teaching me to view this as the blessing it really is.
The attention that we attract both at the English corner and everywhere we go is an open door to easily make friends and eventually share the Good News with them. Already, we have had two movie nights where we have had friends come over. Through general conversation about who we are and what we do, we've had many opportunities to share the gospel.
Blessings and struggles go hand in hand, and I will gladly put up with the annoyance of some pushy people and some stares if it helps me to bring glory to my Father.
