On the last day of the semester, a group of students and 2 teachers went to sing Christmas carols and distributed tracts to the local vendors in our neighborhood. Praise the Lord for the warm reception from the vendors who were happy that we went to bless them. At the new hotel next door, the general manager and his assistant came out to welcome us and even served us with refreshments and freshly baked croissants from the hotel! We were assured of special discounts if we were to use the hotel facilities.
For the students it was encouraging to go out as a group to publicly tell of their faith, and to be warmly received. Pray for them to continue building on those friendships and courageously preach the gospel. Pray for the vendors that their hearts may be open to the Lord.
