Southeast Asian Time

Tessa and Lauryl experienced some true Southeast Asian time with 3 of their new friends.  After planning to eat and go to a different city at 6 PM, the girls did not show up until almost 9PM. Needless to say our patience was worn pretty thin and we were not as excited about the night as we initially intended. 

The night was a little awkward for the the first half, because the girls did not speak as much English as we hoped they would. When we got to the city everything we planned to do was closed because unlike the city we live in, this city's night life was not very lively. So, the night was a little bit of a flop until the way home from our exhausting trip when the Lord did His beautiful work. We were able to share the gospel with our three new friends! There were not saved lives, but we were able to be the Lord's servants and deliver His good news and they actually wanted to hear and talk about it. One of the girls has Christian family members and we pray that our relationship will lead to more gospel conversations and that the Holy Spirit will open hearts. Please be praying for our new friends!
