Paulo told us that he was teaching his friends at school all the stories and everything he was learning from us. After he started passing on his newly acquired knowledge his friends called him Apostle Paulo.
He was faithful to attend every time he could and really seemed to understand what we were trying to get across. After about three weeks attending Bible study, passing the stories along to his friends and inviting his friends to join us, his friends told him they could see a change. They confessed to him when he first began sharing with them, they were all talking about him behind his back. But now, they could tell it was something serious and important.
So, now we have several middle school-aged boys who come to learn about the Bible and discover how Jesus wants them to live—thanks to Apostle Paulo.
