This semester has been an adventure! We have had great attendance at Conversation Cafe. In September we had a lovely dinner night, in an American host home, followed by English practice in discusing American life style or Bible. Students could choose which option to attend. Of the 11 students attending, 9 chose the Bible option, much to our delight!

We wanted to up date you all, but as Carol usually in the photographer and she has been home recuperating, there are no new photos to share.
Every Tuesday Richard is on NOVA Loudoun campus offering Conversation Cafe. In this time he (and some volunteers) offer games, like ANOMIA, to help international students improve their English skills between their class times. This opens the doors for relationships and opportunities to invite them to dinner nights and events. We are still in ground breaking mode.
We are awaiting a commitment from the Open Doors Presbyterian church. They are processing their resources and our needs.
This coming week, Oct 2nd, is the dinner where we are launching additional opportunities for conversational English. The students will have 2 choices: one is a topical discussion and one is a Bible based discussion. There is a good amount of interest from the students. We are praying that Father God will bring many hungry souls.
My recuperation from surgery is side lining me at this point, but i will be home praying.
The next Saturday, Oct 6th, Richard is teaching at our DC area training day for local volunteers. The topic is Spiritual Warfare.
We are thankful to be a part of a growing team here in the DC area. We bless you for your prayers and support.

Our friends from Sterling Park Baptist hosted the event in their home and we all brought food. Our hosts are "famous" for barbecue roast beef, so we were really favored to have them prepare it for us!

We had a great time visiting and getting caught up with everyone, praying together and hearing what Father God is doing in your lives! He is so good, all the time.
