Maybe some of you remember the taxi driver who had a life-changing moment driving through Lima. Or our druggie neighbor who wanted to be a missionary like Tim. Then there was the carpenter who, after finding out that he could have a relationship with God through Jesus, wanted to go tell everyone he knew about the news! Sometimes these are friends; other times they're just people curious about the tall blonde guy.
I don't think our neighbors are curious about the tall blonde guy (many of them are German, after all), but some seem to be curious about God and want to talk. A lot of Tim's approach to these conversations comes from Alpha-- listening, not refuting everything he might disagree with, encouraging reflection, building a relational bridge that can bear the weight of the gospel. The bottom line is that Tim likes our neighbors and wants to be friends with them, and I know that sincerity is evident.
Please pray for our relationships with our neighbors, and especially some of the conversations Tim is having. I'm convinced that when people start asking questions about God, it's because God is drawing them to Himself. We'd love to be a part of that process.
