Welcome back, Zarish!
If you've been following the stories we post about the Reach the Nations-sponsored literacy class in Islamabad, you know that the teacher, Zarish, took some time off after the birth of her baby girl.
But, now, she's back!
And her students are happy! Just look at those smiling faces! The class continued, even in Zarish's absence as her husband, Pastor Babar, took over the teaching. For that we are all grateful!
And the learning continues. Most of the women now can read aloud with fluency and understanding. They are well on their way to confident literacy and, for most of these students, that means reaching their goal: to be able to read the Bible on their own.
Now, just in case you'd like to see Zarish's baby Abigail, here she is - asleep in Pastor Peter's arms on his last visit to Babar and Zarish:
"Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God." - 1 John 4:7
