We had an extra room that no one was using so why not? We met a friend who is Hui about six months ago and have gotten to know her and her family. We learned during her school break she was planning on living in a small two bedroom apartment with her other five relatives.

Even if you deface it, it can still be painted over and resold. Our dear Hui friend, a college student who has just started following Jesus, had her old, second-hand bike stolen while on campus. Was she surprised? Definitely not. She had reported her lost bike to the campus security, but received no help there. We did what we could do at the time: pray for faith that the One True God would restore her bicycle to her. No, it didn’t magically appear before our eyes after we prayed.
