Sitting in the shade of a mighty mango tree, tears filled my eyes as I watched Emelia teach our ladies Bible study. I thank God every Tuesday for our community of ladies who come faithfully every week. I am so grateful now to see them step up and teach what God has placed on their hearts. To see these ladies grow in their faith to the point where they are willing to lead and teach one of our Bible studies is an amazing blessing. I know they are closer in their relationship with God and their understanding of the Bible has grown as well.
It is also amazing to see these women grow closer in their friendship with each other. One thing about our Bible study that is unique is that these women come from many different churches and yet here we all meet together to study the word of God together. Emelia talked about how influential we, as women, are and how we should be the first ones to call our neighbor and friends to come to church or our Bible studies.
Our ladies have taken ownership of our Bible study and they are the ones who are planning ways to grow our Bible study. I am so grateful to be able to learn from these ladies as much as if not more then I am teaching them. They have already taught me so much about the power of prayer and I know they will teach me so much more!
