Detroit: Fruit from the market

We were able to break fast with our Muslim friend, her husband and children on a recent evening.

During the breaking of the fast, there were not as many conversations as we would have liked about spiritual truths. Our friend was very quiet with the presence of her husband.

However there was still fruit from the market.

In our house visits, the Lord used his love through us to love her fully, as our friend. We have had so many important conversations. We have talked about best friends, miracles, family and goals. And in every conversation, Jesus comes up.

It was a beautiful week of seeing more and more of our friend’s heart. And we were able to share so much with her about Christ this week.
