This is how God is working in Adah's life


Here's a little bit about me and what I've been doing of late.

See how God is working in Adah's life.

Hi! I'm Adah.

I'm a sophomore at Azusa Pacific University (APU) where I'm studying to be a nurse. This semester, I learned a lot about maternal health in my OB/GYN nursing class, as well as through watching deliveries and holding babies during my clinical time at the hospital.
Aside from my studies, I lead a small group at the University's International Chapel. Meeting weekly, I help our group focus on what God is doing around the world in His missions.
International Chapel is a comfortable place for a wide variety of students because we worship in multiple languages and have globally-minded speakers.
I'm particularly fond of small groups — allowing closer fellowship with one another — where we talk about the current scriptural message, pray for each other, and enjoy doing fun things together, such as playing games and sharing ethnic food (see photos below).
Every Friday, I attend Japanese Fellowship at the university. This is an APU-lead group that invites Japanese students from the local community college, next door, to come and share food, worship, and personal testimonies. Everything is in Japanese but they translate for folks like me!
Our fellowship time includes worship and personal testimonies that demonstrate for us how God is working in our lives.
As you can see in the following photos, I've very much enjoyed getting to know and befriending some of these people and I look forward to learning much more about the Japanese culture directly from them.
These days I pray that the Lord will enable me to go to Japan, hopefully for six or seven weeks this summer, to teach English at an English camp in one of its cities.

Meanwhile, let me now show you some photos of enjoyable times that I've recently been having with my college friends.

My roommate Bethany and I used the art of wood burning to let people make creative reminders to praying for missions or a friend, or to make a memorable Bible verse.

during Global Vision Week at APU. We used the art of wood burning

or to make a memorable Bible verse.





Bethany, Irene, Noriyo, and I baked Kenyan Maandazis in my kitchen. They are part of my International Small Group.

See my International Small Group.

This is my small group! We share prayer requests, concerns,
and praises, as well as discussing the message given in the chapel.



Here's a shot of the tasty Maandazi treats we all baked together.

I took this "after" shot of the tasty Maandazis we all made (and then enjoyed)
in my kitchen. Kenyan Maandazi is fried bread that's best when served warm.



Irene, Noriyo, Bethany, and I learned to play guitar hero for the first time.
