faith comes through reading

Mark Junkans

I am humbled every time I speak with Iris. She is always doing ministry in her neighborhood. She said last night in a bible study that she is preparing a youth how to read. He is an eighteen year old on probation, kicked out of HISD and in a gang. He's been ordered to take the GED, but he can't read past 4th or 5th grade level. Everyday he comes to Iris' house and she teaches him through a literacy course that we just got. Since it's based on the Bible, he's now asking spiritual questions. Iris said he's coming to faith right before her eyes. We haven't started our literacy program yet, but since when does God wait for a program to bring people to faith?
