New Friend

Usually when I'm out I look for people
from other countries and listen for different
languages. Many times a word to the people I
see in their language brings about conversation
and a opportunity to share the gospel. Wednesday
I was at church and I walked over to the costume
shop for Atlanta Passion Play. A young man walked
in to get a costume. I could tell by his accent
and his name that he was African. I have been
around the APP for a long time and I knew I did
not know him so I started a conversation by asking
him where he was from. He told me he was from West
Africa- Benin. He has only been in the states for
about a year or two and this is his 1st time in the
play. I introuduced him to Mark, my Dad, and a few
others so he would know some people as we get more
and more involved in the upcoming play. Later he ask
me to come back over. He pulled out a CD and told me
he was a singer and he wanted me to have it. I was
very excited. The CD is named "Confirmation" and
on the front it says Jesus Is Lord! I can't tell
you how I have enjoyed listening to Bruno sing
songs about the Lord in African style music.
What a blessing from meeting a new friend!!
