A Recipe for Discipleship

cooking-africaThis is Scovia and she is an answer to prayer. I have been praying for quite some time now that God would provide me with a young lady whom I could start discipleing one on one. Scovia is an orphan who is from John’s village and recently graduated from high school. She really desires to become an expert at baking. Owning a bakery is her dream in life.

So, I invited her to our house for a girls’ baking-day/sleepover as a way to witness to her about Christ and teach her more about God’s Word. We had an awesome time making pumpkin bread and banana bread from scratch and by hand. After that, we sat down on the cool kitchen floor and talked about the Bible till the sun went down and we were both sitting in the dark. Turns out she really loves the Lord. I taught her how to have a personal quite time, answered many of her questions about the Bible, and sent her home with homework. We plan on seeing her again this weekend for another baking day. This time we will try making Clea Wootton’s famous tea cake.

If you feel convicted to start discipleing someone and don’t know where to start, just pray. Pray that God will lead you to the right person, and then all you need to do is find a common interest as a way to spend time with them and introduce a conversation about Christ.
