It was a day of contrasts: we awoke in our sleeping bags, on the sand in a National Park on the Sea, having seen the wonders of His creation all night. Saying goodbye to our faithful B guide for 5 days, we flew to our next city on the Northern Coast. We met with the three families working in a community on the outskirts of the city. They suggested looking for bridges as a means of presenting the Gospel. For example, a discussion of the ever-present sheep might lead to the Good Shepherd; comments about the need for water in a dry environment might lead to the Living Water; a discussion with an electrician might tie to the Light of the World. In the afternoon the women on the team went to an Arabic literacy class as a means of building relationships with the B women in the neighborhood; the men visited ruins and shared hot tea with the caretakers. In the evening all sat on the floor and enjoyed a B feast.
