Nick & Amanda

Nick and Amanda were grateful to have dinner with the Arab families of the wives in her Bible Study. The medical need of one lady in the Bible Study enabled them to intervene with help which resulted in her restoration to God and the church.  Pray for continued opportunities with families and that the conversations can go deeper. Soccer continues to be an outlet for Nick to interact with men resulting in a few home visits as well.
