4/17/10 Nirupi, Bindu, both about 22
Today I went with my daughter, Hannah (16) to the IIT student center where, with their permission, we sat down to talk to two biology graduate students from India. Nirupi grew up in a Presbyterian church but didn't seem too familiar with her need for salvation through faith in Christ. Bindu is Hindu, but as a science student she doesn't believe in reincarnation or any kind of an afterlife. After spending some time getting to know them and finding out about their background and beliefs, they were very willing to hear the whole Gospel, both law and grace, and had some good questions in response. Nirupi had brought Bindu to a nearby church for Palm Sunday, and they expressed interest in visiting our church as well. Here are Hannah's comments about our conversation: "It was a very interesting conversation for everyone. I think that they felt comfortable talking about faith in an easygoing conversation and were interested in what we had to say."
