A Natural Thing to Do
David, age 7, and Lena, age 9, pray before their meal when they eat at restaurants. They also pray before they eat at home, before bedtime, and at family devotions. “It is the natural thing to do,” said their father Mark.
Mark grew up in a Muslim family in Morocco. After a friend invited him to Bible study classes, Mark gave his life to Jesus. He married a Christian girl, Sarah. When David and Lena were born, Mark and Sarah taught them to love Jesus, read the Bible, and pray.
