I know many of you have been anxiously waiting to hear how everything went and I'm so sorry that it has taken me an entire week to update you.
The Lord blessed and we had (I think) 12 ladies come, not including the girls and I! How exciting is that?! Our theme was "Have You Seen Yourself In God's Mirror?"
While I was waiting for Eric to bring the ladies, I thought I would take a few pictures for you, but, AHHH! I had forgotten to charge my camera batteries! I still managed a few quick shots before it completely died. Eric was running all over the place that morning and still lovingly ran home to get my old camera.
We started by playing the game "What's in the bag?" The ladies stuck their hands inside of the bag and had to guess what beauty items were in the bag.
After a delicious meal, made mostly by Lina and her mom, Lina and I put on a skit for the ladies. It was of a lady who did not feel so beautiful and in an attempt to attain beauty, followed tips she heard would make her beautiful - refusing a mirror.
Most of the ladies who attended are not saved and my desire is that they will not only look God's mirror and see themselves in need of a Savior, but also to repent and ask Jesus to save them. I would like to ask you to specifically pray for a lady named Olya who is almost done with her salvation Bible lessons, that God would open her eyes and she would be saved. Also, continue to pray for our neighbor, Sveta and her daughters (Nastia, Masha and Katya). They were not able to come that day but she has let the older two girls come to Sunday school the past few weeks. Anna is so excited as this is an answer to prayer for her. She prays for them daily.
