A Congregation of Two

Two kids sit on a woven bamboo porch, one playing his guitar while the other flips through a small New Testament on her lap. It’s Sunday morning, and just because there is no church in Sango village doesn’t mean that Aroon and Risa won’t worship. The two House of Joy kids sing Akha praise songs and smile invitingly at any curious passerby. No one stops them, but no one joins their service, either. They are, for now, a congregation of two. However, in the unseen realm the children’s prayers are changing things. After several years of faithful worship every time they go home for a visit, Risa and Aroon finally get word that a church has been born in Sango village. Their prayers have been answered.
