A Gift for You

On our morning walks, Jerry and I hand out gospels of John or Bible verses in assorted  languages, mostly English and Spanish, to homeowners, gardeners, builders, “fixers” of roads, sewers, electric and telephone lines, delivery people–

This morning we met a man whose mother tongue is Russian and I rummaged around in my bag and came up with John 3:16 in Russian. It’s always a pleasure to see a face light up when they read something in their “heart” language.
