“..as I wrote this email, people all over these islands were scanning the sky looking for the moon to signal that the month of fasting has begun. But alas, it was too cloudy. Until the moon is seen by the right people, the month can’t ‘open’… This year Ramadan for me will look very different. Firstly, because I’m on a new Island so relationship-wise it’s different, and secondly, our group has made the decision to self-isolate so we will not be out-and-about having our usual fasting conversations or breaking the fast with friends. However, with mobiles and internet we hope to keep in-touch with as many people as possible. [There are] four families that I’m getting to know in our neighbourhood, who I hope to call and ‘visit with’ regularly throughout the month – please pray for Spirit-filled conversations.”
