    Hey Liz! Love this, even as you then came home to an upside down flood! Tonight I saw perhaps a different type of example. Shy young Gabriel, now moved up from beginner, had told his former teacher last week it was his birthday. She did the “normal” thing and brought him a cake and a card tonight. When all the students and teachers sang to him at the break, his face lit up brighter than the lit candles and I saw a new side of him as he responded to being “beloved.” Just the small “normal” things we do – when we (I) think to do them – can reflect so well the Kingdom of God.

    I LOVE this story, Christine! The ESOL ministry is such a wonderful incarnation of Christ’s absolutely free and gracious love–and it is amazing to see the difference it makes when people experience that love. Hooray for the teacher who did the “normal” thing!
