I was at the bank this week, waiting to meet with a service representative. I spoke in a friendly way to the woman waiting next to me (which is what you do in Indonesia), then pulled out my book about AIDS to read, saying that our ministry to youth includes a team that goes to towns around and to schools to educate youth about HIV/AIDS. I thought that would end the conversation, but she was extremely interested, asking questions because she is concerned about her grandchildren and their choices. I went on to invite her to bring her grandchildren to our youth worship events. She said she would bring the whole family! She also mentioned that her husband had just passed last month, so I was able to encourage her with the love of God that is special for widows.
