Sorry for the delay in posting to the blog. Life has gotten just a wee bit crazy! I am working on our letter this week in order to get it out there for our partners. Trying to keep up 2 websites, 2 blogs, activities, group meetings, along with preparing for new events and new potential Bible studies, I can easily get behind. Please pray for me on that!
We are "cruising" right along! We are having very deep spiritual discussions with some students and being able to share the Gospel with them. The Lord is over the harvest. We are simply wanting to share and show love to these students. I won't divulge their names or countries here. But, there are lots of challenges that we face on a daily basis. May God always be before us!
One of the greatest issues that we are being faced with is that there can be "cookie cutter" evangelistic strategies that can be helpful, but individuals are not made with the corresponding "cookie cutters". Each individual student has their own story and life experience and struggles. Granted, the answer is still the same: Jesus. And granted, the root of the problems are the same: sin. But, conversations are always filled with different variations that are unique to that person. Please pray for great wisdom! I so desperately want to share truth, but with the great love and compassion from my Lord!
Above all, my desire is that either these students come to know that Lord, OR when they leave, they say, "the Runner family loved me."
