On Thursday evenings at the center we have been conducting a class featuring the quotes of Saint John Chrysostom (literally, John “The Golden Mouth”). He is a revered early church father in this context and it has been fascinating to see the response of our students to this course. Each week we look closely at two of his quotes in English and discuss the meaning. The first week we talked about the power of our words to bring life or death to others (Proverbs 18:21). A priest of one of our students also attended the course one evening and contributed to the dialogue. We are encouraged to see ways that God is helping us make inroads into this community and ask for you to pray that we would continue to be able to proclaim truth in this context!

Yes, praying. Great to hear, no thrilling , a priest attended. I know contact with a priest has been a request for a while. Praise the Lord
