Today was an encouraging step from the Lord. For the last 5 weeks or so we have been attending a small local church. Although there are times of discouragement of not having any idea of what is being said (unless we use google translate). The songs are becoming more familiar which is fun. Also we are becoming more familiar with the people. Usually we go to the worship time and then I leave and take the kids to Sunday School. This is divided into two groups younger kids and older kids. It is really fun because most of the moms also go with their kids. This is an awesome opportunity for me to get to know them. Also I have really loved learning the simple kids songs (Halla lu halla lu halla lu hallelujah...Pujian Tuhan!) Also it has been fun to be able to understand the stories a little too.
Today after Sunday School the Pastor's wife came up to me and put her arm around me and asked me how I was doing. I said fine. She asked again..how are you really doing? I said honestly we are doing pretty good. She asked specifically how Hudson and Stella were doing. I explained to her that Hudson had been having a hard time but overall was doing better. She then told me that her 5 year old son prayed for our kids the other night. She said he said he wanted to pray for his new friend Hudson...and she said what Hudson and he said "the one from church you know Stella and Hudson." WOW! What an encouragement!!! Truly the body of Christ at work! Now it is important to mention that this whole conversation was in broken english and indo. Can't wait to be able to communicate more. Day by day....little by little!
