"I had an amazing conversation with a girl from China..."
"She and her friends had just arrived in the UK a few days ago to study English before the start an MA at Edinburgh Uni. The team had just introduced the question of the evening (What is the biggest decision you ever made?), and I shared with the team how my biggest decision was becoming a Christian. This girl kept asking questions and even asked how someone becomes Christian. I have her email address and I plan to meet up with her to chat a bit more. Please pray that we could study the Bible together!"
