Students brought their favorite cultural dishes, women originally from countries like Yemen, Iraq, Jordan, Russia, Nigeria, Syria, Albania, Pakistan, China, Morocco, Lebanon and Saudi Arabia. Along with their American Christian friends, they all joined in on praise and worship songs and then closing in prayer. The Holy Spirit moved powerfully-- ladies asked for prayer one after the other! One Muslim lady said “The prayer moved me to tears.” She is attending church on Sundays now!
For POBLO English and Sewing classes, this kind of hospitality and love is the norm! The appreciation of the international ladies, and their response, is also typical. It’s a reminder that the mission field is on our doorstep and that we can reach the world here in our own communities!
