Finding the person of peace!

Leave a Comment

I went to grab some lunch at a local (Croatian) club and met a 20 year old Buddhist and Cambodian (Khmer) background waitress who was open to talk about God. I invited her to join me at my table after she finished her shift (30 min later). We talked about her dreams/ambitions and I encouraged her that God had made her uniquely (in His image) and asked if I could pray for her in any way. She asked me to pray for her family and friends – that she would be a good “counsellor” (her words) as many of them come to her seeking help. After praying I asked if I could share a story with her, which she could share with her network of family/friends. We DBS’d a parable from Luke 18 together (story of the Pharisee & tax collector) and her insights were that God knows everybody’s heart and that people are all the same because we all do wrong. She committed to not be quick to judge others around her…and committed to sharing the story with her friends/family during the week and ask them ‘who (the Pharisee or Tax Collectors) went home right with God and why?’ Praying to God for this woman and waiting to see if she is open, hungry and shares with her community.
