Small Group (#20)

Another AWESOME thing that relates to post #18 is: Eating the last piece of dessert somebody left at your house. Which made me think of my small group. I have taught different kinds of English bible studies throughout my years in Taiwan, and I'm even writing a paper on it this semester. But this year is the first time I've hosted a home group.

#1. A guy riding a bicycle while balancing two 10-foot bamboo poles on his shoulder. Dangerous, but AWESOME!
#2. A lovely sunny day today in the midst of all the winter rain. And finally being able to dry my clothes. A…
