Return to Disampoli

Viviane came almost every day to keep me company. We would sit on the cool cement floor in my 100° living room and talk and play with her baby. I felt I had a good enough relationship with her to invite her to study the Bible with me. I also felt my French was finally up to the challenge. Most importantly, I felt God asking me, “How long are you going to wait?”
