On Thursday nights, Ruth teaches English to Tony and Andy. Sometimes their father, Stanley drops in and studies along with them. What has made this study lots of FUN for everyone has been the honest questions about the Bible stories used. Recently, short-termers Matthew and Malina helped introduce the story of the call of Abraham. “Does this story give you any questions?” they asked. Stanley could not believe Abraham could actually be the father of as many children as the number of sand grains on the seashore, “Unless,” he said, “They are people who believe just like he did, children by virtue of their belief. Like you, Andy, you are Teacher Ruth’s child by faith!” When Ruth heard this, she just had to show Stanley Galatians 3:7–“Understand, then, that those who have faith are the sons of Abraham.” Needless to say, it was like the light dawned for Stanley and his boys! But Andy asked, “How do you know these stories are true?” Matthew encouraged him, “Tonight before you go to sleep, just ask God if He’s real, and see what He says!” What a comfort to know God loves him more than we do!
The greatest joy is seeing God’s Word draw people to faith in God! That is why Bible Telling is the Harbours’ favorite evangelistic tool–whether it’s on visits in homes, in schools, at church, or tutoring English! “Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God!” (Rom. 10:17)
